Dear Parents/ Carers,
Welcome back and welcome to Elm if your child is in Year 5. I hope you all had a lovely summer and have now settled back into the routine of a school week.
This term we have P.E on a Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure the children have the appropriate P.E kit following the school policy, and all items are named. Their P.E kits stay at school in their lockers. The children will need outdoor trainers as well as plimsolls for the hall.
Our class theme is Castles, with an emphasis on invasion and settlement. We aim to visit some of the local castles and find out more about why Sussex has so many castles. There is sure to be a visit. More details to follow. If you have any books or information on castles we would love to see them.
We are settling into our new classroom and area with lots of changes. In the cloakroom, outside of the class I have put up a parent communication board with copies of letters, timetables and other information to assist you. I hope it helps. The children can now eat their sandwiches in their own area and have their own toilet and lockers as well. We are posh! If you have any large unwanted outdoor games that you think the children would enjoy outside, we would love to hear from you.
The Parent Teacher Consultations will soon be upon us, but in the meantime, if you have any issues please do not hesitate to see me as soon as possible.
Mr J Agate. Classteacher
