Message from Mrs Kingston We have noticed increasing levels of playground chat about the game Fortnite— Battle Royale which is a PEGI 12+ gun battle game which requires players to work as a team. The main risks to children are interacting with strangers and also making costly in-app purchases. If your child is talking about Fortnite, please follow this link to find out more about it. https:// fortnite-battle-royal-parents-guide-keepkids-safe-gaming/

Swimming lessons will continue throughout term 3. They will take place on Thursday afternoons, during the children’s PE slot. Swimming costumes and towels will need to be in school in a labelled bag each Thursday.



PE sessions will take place on Thursday and Friday afternoons and will be taught by the sport coaches. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school at all times and that items are clearly labelled. Their kit should consist of: a white polo, black joggers and black daps.



Homework is sent home every Friday and alternates between comprehension, writing and maths. It should be returned by the following Wednesday. Children will also have weekly spelling and times table’s homework. A termly overview of these can be found in both your child’s homework book and on the year 5 class page of the schools website.


And finally….

If you wish to speak to me about anything concerning your child please do not hesitate to do so.  You are welcome to visit us on Thursday mornings from 8:40am for 'stay and read' or 'stay and count'.


Thank you for your support.
