Reconnecting Curriculum

Welcome to Owls and Merlins!


This half term we will be focussing on a 'Reconnecting Curriculum'.  This will help us to establish and reinforce key skills the children may have forgotten, helping them to connect those links again before moving them on to acquiring new skills.


Here's a few things you will need to know:

  • In year 5 our day starts at 8.30am and finishes at 3.20pm
  • PE is on a Tuesday (Merlins) and Thursday (OWLS).  You will need to wear your PE kit on that day.  Please make sure it is appropriate for the weather (long trousers and a jacket/hoodie on cooler days).
  • Homework - Friday homework is given. Tuesday homework is due back.


As we are now in the summer term and hopeful that the weather will become increasingly warm and sunny (fingers crossed!), could you please send your child in with a filled water bottle (ideally every day, but especially when they are doing PE).
