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 Miss Leonard and Friday with Mrs Moores.
R.E will be taken by Mrs Spooner on a Friday morning.
Homework days remain as in Y4, with homework issued on Wednesday and due in the next Monday.
The current Year5 timetable is available for download at the bottom of the page. Please note that this is subject to change. 'PPA' on a Friday will be R.E and P.E for the children.
Much of our learning for the first two weeks of term will be focused on a picture book, "The Viewer" by Gary Crew and Shaun Tan. We have made predictions and are beginning to retell elements of the story in setting descriptions, in conjunction with Y6. 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 5EL.
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.
