SPRING TERM 2020

Check out our Home Learning Page.

The Year 5 Spring Term Newsletter was sent home at the beginning of this term together with the

Year 5 Spring Term Topic Web that outlines what we will be covering of the course of the term.

Dates and News

The School Day

The school day starts at 9.00am and finishes at 3.15pm.

Start Of The Day

Year 5 children need to line up when the first bell goes ready to be collected by their teacher when the longer bell goes at 9.00am.

Break Time 

Children may bring in a piece of fruit to eat at morning break or a dried fruit product which is labelled ‘one of your five a day'. No other snacks are permitted.

Healthy Tuck Shop - those who wish their child to have a snack from our KS2 Tuck Shop now need to sign up and pay via SIMS Pay. Children are then issued with a Tuck Shop Card which is kept for them. 

Milk is now available break time for those who have signed up to the Cool Milk service. Milk is free for under 5’s as well as those who get free school meals and subsidised for all other primary school children.
Find out more including how to register by visiting www.coolmilk.com

Lunch

You can find out more about lunches and get a copy of the current school menu here.

Children in Key Stage 2 have lunch between 12.30pm and 1.30pm.

End Of The Day 

The school day finishes at 3.15pm for Year 5.  The teachers bring the class down to meet parents/carers near the school’s main entrance. Children who are not collected on time will be taken to the School Office to wait for you.

P.E. 

Year 5 has PE on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Please ensure your child brings in P.E. kit including trainers each week on a Monday and takes them home for a wash on Friday. 

We will also continue our swimming lessons this term. 

The children are expected to have the school PE kit (available from the supplier Stitch Design) including trainers for each session.  Long hair must be tied back on PE days.

If your child forgets their PE kit, they will wear a spare kit from school and lose minutes from golden time.

Homework

There is more information on our Homework page where you can find out more details of our homework policy, guidance for parents and also download some useful information to help you support your child at home. You'll also find some useful links on our Fun & Educational websites page that can help your child.

Homework tasks alternate each week. Homework is given out each Friday and is due back the following Tuesday. 

Spellings are given on Tuesdays to practice ready for a test the following Monday.

If your child is struggling with their homework please ensure they speak to their teacher on a Monday morning.

Please ensure your child is practising times tables daily using Times Tables Rock Stars. 

Reading

Year 5 children are expected to read each evening either independently or with an adult and should write their own comment in their reading record (where possible).

Please click here to see our Year 5 Reading List. 

Mobile Phones

Children in Year 5 and Year 6 may bring a mobile phone in to school.

Please ask the office staff for a permission letter, these need to be signed and returned to school before any phones are allowed in.

Mobile phones may not be used in school and should be handed in to the class teacher for safe keeping during the day. MeetingTeachers  Parents' Evenings take place in the Autumn and Spring terms - a private 15-minute appointment with your child's teacher to discuss progress.

If you wish to see your child's teacher at any other time, please speak to them in the first instance when you pick up your child from school. Teachers are always happy for you to make an appointment to see them which you can do through the School Office.

REPORTING TO PARENTS 

In the autumn and spring terms we have Parent Evenings. However, if you have any concerns or questions about anything to do with your child, please don’t wait for a formal meeting, but contact us right away.

The teachers are always pleased to see parents or carers of the children they teach, but it is not possible for them to talk to you when they are responsible for a class.

Teachers are happy to make an appointment for before or after school.  The Head, Deputy and Assistant Head are very happy to see parents or carers at almost any time.   If you prefer, you can  ring to make an appointment to see either of them.

We want parents to feel welcome in our school. Please see your child’s teacher if you would like to help, for example, by accompanying classes on outings or helping with reading for the first half-hour of the day.

Birthdays 

If you wish, you can send in a plate of fruit or donate a book to your child’s class and write a birthday message inside.

Swaffield is a 'Healthy School' and, as such, we do not allow sweets, chocolate or cakes to be brought into the classroom. This includes birthday cakes.

You may provide a plate of prepared fruit for the class to share if you wish.

If you wish you can buy a book to donate to your child's class and it will be inscribed, "This book has been donated to Class ... to celebrate the birthday of .........  .........."

(It is always best to check the suitability of a particular book, with the class teacher, before you purchase it.)
