Red 5 Team
The Red 5 team are really excited about teaching your child this year. I’m Miss Zakir, the class teacher, and our class is supported by Mr Jones. Please come and see us if you have any questions.

Our topic for this half term is Ancient Greece. We will be looking at various Greek myths, including Pandora’s Box and Daedalus and Icarus. Our science topic is going to be Forces where we will be learning about gravity and investigating air and water resistance.

We will continue to go swimming on Monday and Thursday this half term.

Reading / Book Bags

Please ensure your child brings in their book bag every day. It would be fantastic if you could spend 15-20 minutes each evening reading with your child, then sign the journal. The journal can be completed by your child but it needs to be checked and signed by an adult. We will check journals twice a week. Home reading makes a real difference to children’s learning and progress. Thank you for your support and cooperation.

Just a reminder that school starts at 8:45am and finishes at 3:15pm. Children can come straight up to the classroom from 8:45am. If your child would like to go ‘home alone’, please see the school office to complete the permission letter. If you are unable to collect your child, please contact the school office with details of who will be collecting your child.

Please make sure the office has up to date details of any allergies or medical conditions your child has. Also, please ensure we have the correct contact details for you.

The children will be completing Independent Learning projects this term, further information will follow.  A list of spellings and times table will be sent out weekly for the children to learn. Spellings and times tables will be tested on Tuesday each week.

I am available before or after school if there is anything you would like to discuss. Please feel free to come and have a chat.


Best regards,

Miss Zakir and Mr Jones
