Dear Parents

I will be your child’s teacher for this academic year 2019/2020 and am looking forward to helping them to achieve their full potential in every way.

As many of you know, I was previously teaching in Year 4, however I have many years of experience of teaching in Upper Key Stage two and completely understand what a child needs to be taught in order to meet the Year 5 standards.

I thank you in advance for support your child by encouraging homework to be completed to their best ability and learning their spellings and times tables at home.

Reading is a really important feature to prepare them for the end of Year 5 and their Year 6. We are excited to introduce a new Reading Record book this year which allows the pupils and parents to record how many reading books are being completed. Please support us by commenting when your child completes their reading book.

The children also have a log-in account for both Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars which have been stuck into their Reading Record. This is paid for by the school and gives further opportunities to learn in a fun way at home. We really appreciate you allowing them time to do this.

I am looking forward to taking your child on different trips and learning experiences outside of school. I am sure that together we will enjoy the whole of this year together.

Yours faithfully, Mrs Beswick
