Dear Parents / Carers,

 

Once again thank you for your continued support as we navigate the constant changes that Covid-19 brings. We are and will continue to do our very best to keep our school community safe and well

 

From Monday 28th September all adults will be asked to wear face coverings when entering the school grounds. If you are exempt from this, please do speak to a member of staff on the gate. 

 

When on school premises please ensure that you are maintaining social distancing measures.  

 

We request that only 1 adult per family enters the school grounds when dropping off and collecting your child/ren. 

 

Thank you.

   This half – term in French, children will revise numbers 0-70 and they will extend their learning with numbers to 100. They will also learn simple directions so that they can participate in a role – play asking and answering questions on where we can find shops and different places in a town.

This half term our Health and Wellbeing focus is respectful relationships, including online relationships. This is part of the social strand of Health and Wellbeing.

We will be learning about the importance of respecting others, even when they are different (for example, physically, in characters, personality or background); the importance of self-respect; that in school and in wider society they can expect to be treated with respect by others, and that in turn they should show due respect to others; about different types of bullying and its impact; what a stereotype is and that people sometimes behave differently online, including by pretending to be someone they are not.

 

We will be teaching the following skills: how to choose and make friends; how to celebrate differences between friends; how to resolve conflicts; how to raise any bullying concerns, including online and we will be developing strategies to resist appearance pressures and stereotyping.

Following the government's new campaign to prevent the spread of coronavirus "Hands, Face, Space" we are encouraging Parents and Carers to wear a face covering at drop off and pick-up. Thank you for your continued support, it is greatly appreciated.

School fund

Although we are unable to go on school trips in the Autumn term, your child will be taking part in a number of enrichment activities in class and therefore the school fund is still needed and greatly appreciated.


The contribution is a one off payment of £20. If this is too much please make a smaller contribution. This includes pupils eligible for Pupil Premium. If every parent contributes something, it will make such a difference to what we can offer.

Please make your contribution using:
ParentPay under the item ‘Voluntary Contribution 2020-21’.
Cheque (payable to Avenue Primary Academy)
Cash in a clearly marked envelope (to be given to a member of staff on the gate or directly to the office – who will give you a receipt.)
Your contribution is entirely voluntary, but you will understand the difference that it makes.

Thank you for your continued support.

Parents, carers and visitors are kindly asked to wear a face covering whenever they enter the school building. Thank you for your continued support.

7th September 2020

Dear Parents / Carers,

 

We would like to welcome you back to school and we are very excited about our year ahead in Year 5. We look forward to working with you and your child.

 

Establishing routines

The start of a new school year enables us to set the tone for learning and behaviour in the school. It is an important time for teachers and children to establish classroom routines, to set expectations and get to know each other. Please help us by ensuring children are in school by 8.55am at the latest, wearing the correct school uniform and ready to learn. On the school website, you will find detailed information about the school day and school uniform. 

 

Topic

This half term, our new topic is called ‘The Dark Ages’. This is a fantastic topic, which all of the Year 5 teachers have been looking forward to. Within this topic, we will be looking at Britain’s settlement by Anglo-Saxons as well as the Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for the Kingdom of England to the time of Edward the Confessor. We will draw on the geography and history strands by exploring Anglo-Saxon invasions, settlements and kingdoms: place names and village life. Following on from this, we will discuss the Viking raids and invasion and the key figures of Alfred the Great and Athelstan, first king of England, and Edward the Confessor.  During the topic, the children will have the opportunity to create artistic representations of this period of history (eg. a Viking longship, Anglo-Saxon jewellery). In English, we will be looking at texts linked to the literary focus ‘to entertain’, including character descriptions, legends and diaries.

 

Mathematics

In mathematics, we will be building on prior knowledge and learning, starting with the core essentials of place value; addition and subtraction. We will read, write, order and compare numbers up to one million. We will also add and subtract using the column method up to 5 digits, including decimals with the same number of decimal places. In addition to this, we will be solving problems involving temperature changes by calculating the difference between positive and negative integers. As usual, we would like to encourage you to support your children by asking them what they have been learning each week and practising times-tables and mental arithmetic.

 

PE

Children will need their clearly named PE kits in school every day. This must include navy shorts and an Avenue logo PE shirt, black plimsoles and trainers. It is advisable to also provide your child with plain navy tracksuit bottoms and a navy jumper for colder weather. Children will be expected to remove their earrings for PE or have these covered with tape.

 

Swimming

Children must bring in their swimming kit every Monday. This must include a 1-piece swimming costume for girls or swimming trunks for boys (both should be tight fitting), a swimming hat (clearly named on the outside with a permanent marker), towel, pool shoes and optional goggles. Please ensure that all items are named. There are a limited number of hats available to buy from the school office for £2.99. Children will not be allowed to swim with earrings in. If children cannot remove these themselves, you will need to remove them at home.

 

School fund

This year, your child will be taking part in a number of exciting enrichment activities. In order for us to be able to offer these opportunities, we are asking that all parents contribute to school fund. 

The contribution is a one off payment of £20. If this is too much please make a smaller contribution. This includes pupils eligible for Pupil Premium. If every parent contributes something, it will make such a difference to what we can offer.

Please make your contribution using:

ParentPay under the item ‘Voluntary Contribution 2020-21’. 

Cheque (payable to Avenue Primary Academy)

Cash in a clearly marked envelope (to be given to a member of staff on the gate or directly to the office – who will give you a receipt.)

Your contribution is entirely voluntary, but you will understand the difference that it makes.

 

Communication

We communicate with parents in a variety of ways. These include:

  • Weekly updates on the Year group Webpage on what your child has been learning, and what is coming up.
  • Autumn and spring parent consultation meetings where we can discuss your child’s progress. Autumn meetings will happen virtually or by phone.
  • Specific times where you will be invited to visit your child’s classroom to see some of the work they have been completing in school. There will be a virtual tour of each classroom during w/c 7th September.

 

Please remember to maintain social distancing at drop-off and pick-up times, and to leave the premises as quickly as possible.

 

If you feel you need to contact your child’s class teacher at other points in the year, this can be done by writing a note in the back of your child’s reading record, emailing the school office (office@avenue.sutton.sch.uk) or telephoning the school office (020 8642 5138) who will pass on your message. Alternatively, messages can be given to members of staff at the gates in the morning and afternoon. If you need further assistance please contact Miss Morgan, the Year Group Leader, or Mrs Vaz, Head of Phase for Year 5 and 6.

 

We would like to thank you for your continued support, which has enabled staff and pupils to have a safe and happy start to the term.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Miss Morgan        Miss Fernandez         Mr Burke         Miss Mayley         Mr Baldock and Ms Genco

Welcome to Year 5!

 

 

 

We are all really looking forward to seeing the children on Thursday 3rd September.

Morning drop-off: Please drop off your child at the Avenue Road gate. The gates will be open at 8:10am – 8:55am. The children will then make their way to the Jubilee playground where they will proceed to their new classrooms.

If you also have a child in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, please drop your children off via the Dorset Road gate and follow the guidance on your younger child’s pick-up times and locations. Please note, only children with siblings in Nursery to Year 2 should use the Dorset Road gate.

If your child is feeling nervous about returning to school following the lockdown period last term, please look at the social story with them (emailed in July) and reassure them. If you need support, then please email the school office and we will arrange to speak to you.

The reopening guidance and social story can be found on the website under the Key information tab - Covid-19 folder.

Uniform

Please remember that children must be in correct school uniform which is labelled (see our school website for full details of the uniform policy).

Could you also ensure that your child’s P.E kit is in school from the start of term and that each item is name labelled.  The children will require their P.E. kit during the first week of school and this should include trainers for outdoor use. Smart watches are not permitted in school, due to safeguarding reasons.

The children will also require a labelled swimming kit as they will begin swimming the week beginning 7th September. All Year 5 pupils will be swimming on a Monday. 

Year 5 children may bring a mobile phone to school, which must be switched off when they arrive and then handed to their class teacher.

If you wish your child to walk home alone, please email the school office.

We look forward to working with you and your child.
