Just a quick and welcome message to all new Year 5 Parents / Carers and pupils!
Welcome back to Heaver’s Farm and welcome to starting Year 5: we are now operating under far less ‘Covid Restrictions’, and are looking forward to a wonderful, smooth year; after much turbulence previously…
Please could we encourage all parents (and pupils, if they wish) to REGISTER to this blog – scroll down to the FOLLOW BLOG section in the right hand column and use a favoured email to register. The blog will send you an email of notification, whenever a new POST is added. We will be adding some of the following information, regularly:
WEEKLY SPELLINGS (around 10/15 spellings per week, from the key Year 5 & 6 lists)
UPDATES and INFORMATION / DATES (where useful, and solely for Year 5)
Half-termly PRESENTATIONS (where we share the work completed by pupils in both classes)
Possible use to share LESSONS and GUIDED WORK (should more ‘isolations’ be needed by some pupils…)
DAY TIMINGS – timings for the start and finish of school have changed – doors open at 8:40am, register is at 8:45am and lateness are recorded precisely at 8:50am. School ends for Year 5 at 3:05pm everyday.
P.E. DAYS & UNIFORM – P.E. days are on – TANZANITE = Tues. / Thurs., CORAL = Wed. / Thurs. & SAPPHIRE = Tues. / Thurs. A small reminder that children are expected to come to school wearing their P.E. kit and continue to wear items throughout the day. Also, that our uniform policy requires a HOUSE t-shirt to be worn, featuring the correct House Colour, on relevant days. Here is the school uniform information:
PE KIT for all year groups
- Selsdon Tracksuit or Royal blue jogging bottoms (Navy or Black are also acceptable as long as they are plain);
- Selsdon House T shirt;
- Water bottle.
Sports clothing with large logos and/or slogans may not be worn.
Old/cheap trainers are best for work on the field (they will get muddy so please don’t send in expensive ones!)
AND JUST A SMALL ISSUE… Morning break snacks are still very much permitted (and encouraged!). However, please could we remind that these should be healthy snacks (fruit and veg are excellent choices) and be brought to school in containers and carefully, securely bagged.
Thank you to all parents / carers for their patience, support and ongoing interest since our return; and for your adaptability and push to support our Year 5 staff so far. It has been a joy to return close to ‘normality’ so far… thank you for all your help!
