Year 5 & 6

Green Class at Yarmouth Primary – Years 5 and 6

Dear Parents/Carers

This year in Green Class, the staff team will consist of Mrs. Lewis (teacher), Miss Isaac (teacher) and Mrs. Newton (HLTA). Miss Isaac will be at the helm on Mondays, Tuesdays and will work alongside Mrs Lewis on a Wednesday. Then Mrs Lewis takes the reins on Thursdays and Fridays. To ensure consistency and continuity, Mrs. Lewis and Miss Isaac will be meeting on Wednesday afternoons to plan and resource Green Class’s learning each week. During this time, Mrs. Newton will be leading the learning.

Children will be greeted in the playground at 8.40 a.m. and returned to parents at 3.00 p.m. each day.

Every child needs to bring a named water bottle to school which will be taken home daily. In line with the Healthy Schools Initiative, we request that only water is provided. Healthy snacks are acceptable for morning break times, such as fruit, rice cakes and cereal bars. Due to several children experiencing nut allergies, we kindly request that nut-based products are avoided.

P.E. will take place twice a week and we ask that named P.E. kit is in school at all times. Preferably, children should remove their earrings before coming to school on the days which P.E. is taught (Monday and Tuesdays); if this is not possible, please provide surgical tape so that your child can participate in P.E. and that we can adhere to health and safety requirements.

As we believe that reading skills are very important, we would very much appreciate it if you could listen to, or share books with your child on a daily basis. Modelling enjoyment of reading is priceless and a great way to encourage a love of books. Holding discussions and debates about the content of literature will inspire your child to engage with a range of texts and improve spoken language and communication skills.

Spellings and maths homework will be provided on a weekly basis and this will be discussed in class so that expectations are clear. (We will send home a homework timetable so that you are clear with the day that it is set and when it needs to be handed in). Maths homework will focus on fluency of mental calculations in the first term. A spelling word list will be set on a Monday and the children will be tested on the following Monday. A half-termly topic-based activity will be set to complement our learning in this area. This task is outlined on your personal copy of our Medium term plan. However, it will be discussed with your children to ensure that they are clear with regards to the expectation. If there is anything which concerns you regarding your child’s education or well-being, then please do not hesitate to speak to us in person, or by Dojo messenger. There will always be someone available to address any worries that you may have.

We would like to add that we are very excited about the year ahead and are very much looking forward to working with you and your children here at Yarmouth.

Yours sincerely

Green Class team

Year 6 Osmington Bay

We arrived at school on 30th October very excited for our Federated trip to PGL, Osmington Bay. We traveled for 1 ½ hours to reach PGL, which was kind of funny as we watched Mr Beans Holiday on the coach!
We had a lot of activities, raft building, quad bikes, giant swing, zip wire, problem solving and sensory trail, tunnel trail, abseiling, rock climbing and even a disco. I enjoyed the sensory trail and disco the best. It was nice
as we didn’t have to share our dorm with teachers! I was a bit worried about going on the quad bikes so the PGL made a deal with me that if I sat on the quad bike, I could boss Mrs Lewis around for a day, if I sat on
it with the engine on, I could boss Mrs Lewis around for two days and if I went around on it to at least half way, I could boss Mrs Lewis around for the week. I went round 4 times!!! Mrs Lewis was very busy after that!
I made friends with Holly and Serena from Shalfleet and we are now really good friends.
We watched Peter Pan on the way back but I fell asleep!
