Welcome to the new term

Welcome to the new term!

Hello Year 5, hope you are all well and enjoying the final few days of the summer holidays. The Year 5 Team are really looking forward to seeing you all on your first day back on Wednesday 2nd September. From September, the way in which you arrive and leave school will be slightly different with each class arriving and leaving school at different times. You will be expected to meet your class teacher at the Southbank entrance. Below are the times for each class.

Southbank entrance9.20am9.30am9.40am
Southbank entrance3.50pm4.00pm4.10pm

Please note that on the days when you will have P.E., you will need to come to school dressed in your P.E. kit for the day. We will inform you of the days in which you have P.E. during the first week back.

Please note: You are allowed to bring coats and bags.

Lunches: When bringing lunches into school, please remember that they must be in a disposable bag if possible. Lunch boxes can be brought into school, but must be taken home at the end of the day and cleaned.

Enjoy your last few days of the summer holiday and we will see you on Wednesday 2nd September 2020.

PE at Coundon… a few changes!

From September and in line with Government Guidance, we will be getting outside a lot more (in all sorts of weather conditions), this will include our PE lessons.

We will be asking the children to come into school on their PE days IN THEIR PE UNIFORM. (They will find out their PE days during the first week back). They will then stay in this for the day, so a change of clothes will not be needed in school. The main reason for this change is for safety reasons; it has been advised that we reduce the amount of belongings that are coming to and from each home and onto the school site.

For the older children, this change also comes about as there will be reduced space for them to change separately (boys and girls) due to them being in their class bubbles.

To make sure that the children are suitably dressed once the cooler weather sets in, we would like the children to have black jogging bottoms, a black hoody or sweatshirt and suitable outdoor footwear to wear alongside their usual white t-shirt and black shorts.

We thank you for your support with this.

Miss Kelly Perrett and Mrs Victoria Gray

First of all we would like to say well done to each and everyone one of you for adapting to learning at home. This year has been a little different for everybody but you all now deserve to enjoy the summer. We can’t wait to meet all of you in September and get to know all of your individual personalities. All of the staff are working hard to make sure that when you return it is as safe and ‘normal’ as possible. This is not the usual way in which we would like to meet you however we hope that you enjoy reading about your new teacher next year.

Enjoy your Summer!

Summer Holidays

Dear Year 5,
It has come to the end of the academic year and what a year it has been! It has definitely been unique. We are so proud of you and how resilient you have been through this challenging time. We have really missed you and can’t wait to see you in September – even if you won’t be in our classes. We know how hard some of you have worked and how difficult it has been for many of you (and your parents). We wanted to say well done and we hope you have a good summer holiday. 
Over the summer holidays we will not be posting work on the blog. However, we would encourage you to follow our tips so that you are ready to come back in September…
TIP 1: If you haven’t completed this already; write a letter to your new teacher to tell them about yourself. Here are just some ideas to get you started: What are your likes and dislikes? What hobbies do you have? What do you enjoy at school? What are you looking forward to about coming back in September? 
TIP 2: Read. Keep reading as much as you can. Read books from home. Read ‘Fiction Express’. Read magazines. There is so much research into the difference reading over the summer holiday can make!!
TIP 3: Keep practising your number skills. Play on TT Rockstars. Use some of the links to Maths Games websites from the blog to keep up your Maths skills. 
TIP 4: Get outside. We hope that the weather is beautiful over the summer holiday and you can get out for walks, bike rides or even some runs.
TIP 5: Enjoy the break from school work and rest well. 
From Everyone in Year 5
