• It is county and national policy that no jewellery is to be worn for any physical activities in school.
• Children therefore should not wear earrings etc on P.E. days
• All jewelry, including watches, earrings etc, must be removed for all Physical Education activities by the child.
• If your child has recently had his/her ears pierced please supply two plasters to cover the earrings during P.E.



Children in Year 4 will be swimming every Tuesday at Deben Leisure Centre (Woodbridge) letters will be sent home to ask for your permission.

For swimming children will need a towel, swim suit (no bikinis please), swimming shorts and goggles (if required).  Children will also need their own swimming hats.

These lessons are a fantastic opportunity to become more confident in the water, so please remember your swimming kit every Tuesday.


Year 5 Music Lessons:

Year 5 will be receiving Music lessons every Thursday, if your child brings their instrument home it is important that this is in school every Thursday.  


In Maths we will be following the White Rose Scheme of work which focuses on developing reasoning and fluency techniques.  Every Maths lesson will begin with some sort of counting and will always include an element of reasoning.  In addition to a Maths lesson children will also complete 8 Maths questions daily in the morning to reinforce any methods they have been learning.  



In English we will be using our Power of Reading book to support and develop our Writing and Reading skills.  Our Power of Reading book will be linked to our topic and will be revealed to the class soon!  In addition to the English lesson, reading workshop will also be completed daily where children will get to improve and develop their reading and comprehension skills.
