Welcome to a new and somewhat different year. Hopefully it will be a year in which we move past the present Covid restrictions and on to a more positive future. Our philosophy is to have pupils, teachers and carers working together to enable all pupils to achieve their potential, but for 2020 although we will continue to share ideas with Y6 as an upper KS2 phase group, we will of course be retaining the security of our Y5 bubble and social distancing at all times.
Our main emphasis for this term is on our topic transport in the local area, which will use primary and secondary sources to explore how things have changed both during and before living memory.
Our Science focus begins with properties of materials and we will be using practical investigations to explore these properties as far as possible.
Outdoor PE takes place every Monday, while indoor PE is on Fridays. In line with the rest of the school the children will be wearing their PE kit to school on these dates.
Our Covid secure approach will ensure that all homework is completed and submitted via portfolios on class dojo, until such a time as restrictions are relaxed. Children will bring reading books home, but only return them to school once they have been completed. This is to avoid transmission where possible. Books returned to school will be ‘quarantined’ for at least three days before being returned to the shelves.
Despite the new challenges, we are aiming to have a positive and enthusiastic learning environment.
This is our current timetable for the autumn term:
