RSE Update

Dear Parents/Carers,


Please be aware that over the next few days in class we will cover the RSE unit for which we recently requested consent. We will be discussing puberty (linked with Science to discuss the physical and emotional changes that take place as the body develops into adulthood) as well as homophobic bullying. In class we will be discussing how these subjects are appropriate for your child’s age group and will be holding carefully monitored discussions. Should your child ask you further questions at home which you are unsure about, please let us know and we will discretely address these.


Thank you,


The Year 5 Team

Nature Walk Tomorrow

Dear Parents/Carers,


Year 5 will be completing their postponed Nature Walk tomorrow (6th May). Please ensure that your child comes to school in clothing suitable for the outdoors, including waterproof coat and a change of shoes. We aim to observe the change of season, the different parts of a flower and the potential impact of the development on the hedgerow habitat.


Thank you,


The Year 5 Team

Parents’ Evening Calls

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please remember that we will be completing parents’ evening calls this week. We will be calling from an unknown number, so if this is around the time of your appointment it is likely to be us. If you miss your allocated time, please do not call the office as we will call you again at the earlier possible time. Please be mindful that we have no free slots so this may be after 5:30.

We will be talking through the snapshot of your child’s learning which has been stuck into their diary.

Thank you for your support,

Mrs Arthurs and Mr Banfield.
