Hello Red Kite's! A very big and warm welcome back to school and into year 5 :)
We have got lots of wonderful activities and lessons to get you back into a positive learning environment and will be with you every step of the way!
For the first few weeks we are going to be looking at a GORGEOUS book 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers. Through this we will be looking into the world around us, the people, places and animals in our world and what importance they have here, with us.
In the first half term, we are going to be re-visiting some Year 4 curriculum content to ease our way back into the school environment and to build up our knowledge before entering the year 5 learning. We will be focusing, to begin with, on place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
With so many of us spending extra time online and on screens recently, we are going to be exploring the importance of online safety and also discover some fun screen free activities and the benefits of spending less time in front of screens.
For the first few weeks in science we will be focusing on germs, how they travel and how we can protect ourselves, the importance of hand washing and also healthy living and eating.
We are so excited to have you back at St John's, if any parents/carers or children have any questions or concerns please contact myself through telephoning the front office and leaving a message, I am more than happy to help!
