Year 5 have settled in really well to life in upper Key Stage 2. They have taken on board all the new routines we have given them and have been really positive about their learning, especially after being off for so long.

As well as the core academic subjects, we have been thinking and talking about our feelings in terms of being back at school and how to deal with certain situations. The children have responded really well to this and I have been pleased with how they have re-connected in terms of their friendships and interactions with their classmates.

The main thing now is to continue to remind children to be organised and to use their thinking skills at all times. Walking to and from school is a great way to do this, so if you are happy for your child to do this, please contact the office who will provide you with a parent consent form.

Additionally, it is really important that all clothing and items your child brings into school are clearly labelled so that they can be returned quickly to their owner!

It has been great to talk to so many of you before and after school. Thank you for supporting us with the new procedures and if you have any questions at all, at any time, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Feel free to use Year5@ranikhetacademy.co.uk or call the school office.

Best wishes,

Mr Thomas
