Tolethorpe (Yr 5)
Welcome back to Summer Term in Tolethorpe Class
Welcome back to all the children in Tolethorpe and their families! Last term was a mix of remote learning and then three weeks back in class together, and what a joy that was! The children soon got back in the swing of learning and made good progress as we covered some of the gaps that have inevitably emerged after twelve months of disrupted schooling.
I very much hope that this final third of the year will happen with minimum disruption so that the children really get an opportunity to consolidate all they have learned previously and start to develop new skills and knowledge.
The term ahead is varied and exciting, with plenty of great opportunities to enhance the curriculum. These include a virtual visit from the Rutland Water Osprey Project; two whole school faith mornings where Tolethorpe will explore the value of compassion; taking part in a road safety competition and learning a dance to perform for the virtual May dance event.
For more details of our learning for this term, please see the Medium Term Theme Web for Parents in the documents below.
I will continue to keep you up to date with our learning developments and give general messages and reminders out on Class Dojo. 'Knowledge Organisers' which are available for key subjects continue to be available on Class Dojo. These contain some key facts regarding our term's learning and it is important for children to know these - these can be used for homework as well as within class. I will make sure any independent home based learning (homework) is set on Seesaw.
Finally, I am delighted to tell you that we have some new children joining the class this term, and I know your child will give them a very warm welcome.
If you have any problems at all, please get in touch by email: email@example.com
