New year information
Hello all, and welcome back to another year at Leasowes Primary School. The children have all arrived back with their thinking caps on and ready to learn.
Please note, that this half-term Y5's P.E days are Wednesday with Mrs Moores and Monday with Miss Leonard.
French will be taken by Miss Quimby on a Wednesday afternoon.
Homework days remain as in Y4, with homework issued on Wednesday and due in the next Monday.
Much of our learning for the first two weeks of term will be focused on a picture book, "The Atlas of Imaginary Places" by Mia Cassany. We have made predictions and are beginning to create wonderful structures and artwork surrounding 'The Tallest Lighthouse' and 'The Lush Green City'. We look forward to transforming our phase corridor with artwork, writing and DT inspired by the book.
Next Tuesday is our "Meet the Teacher" evenings. Please keep in mind that the Y5 presentation will detail information about your child's education this academic year. Year 5's sessions will be at 5:00 - 5:30 or 5:45 -6:15 in the 5DT Classroom.
Please remember that if you have any queries, I am available each afternoon on the school gate.
Here, we will post important dates and information.
