Hello Aspen parents and guardians, 

Welcome to the world of Year 5. I hope your child has enjoyed the first few days of their new school year (I know I certainly have). We have got stuck straight in and they are all working very hard already. They have settled into the new rules and routines so quickly and have adapted to the new changes which we have in place. 

I would like to remind you about signing the charters in the new homework diaries (from pages 9-11) indicating whether you give permission for your child to access and partake in food tasting, the use of the Chromebooks and to watch PG films. 

Homework Diary

With regards to reading, your child has been assigned a new book band colour and has chosen a book from the shelf. I will monitor their progress on these bands but also encourage children to read books that they enjoy from home. I look forward to communicating through the diaries and offer the children a Dojo per reading recorded with an adult’s signature. As a school, we ask that your child reads a minimum of three times a week to an adult. 

From now on, homework will be sent out online every Friday and will need to be completed by the following Friday. Children will make a note of their homework task in their diaries underneath their spellings.

Timestables and arithmetic skills will be revised during Mathematics each week and as a school we encourage your children to be practising these skills at home. Spellings are tested each Monday and new ones assigned. I have encouraged children to share their results with you at home and continue to work on those they are still struggling with.


PE information will be updated soon when we have further guidance. We will be going outside to play games in the meantime but children will wear the clothes and shoes that they have come to school in. We would encourage children to wear suitable clothing and shoes on this day. Please do not send PE kits in yet until further notice.

I look forward to working alongside you all. Please feel free to contact me via Class Dojo if you have any questions or concerns. 

Best wishes,

Miss Ponter.
