Year 5 - Class Hawk
Summer Term 2022
to our Year 5 webpage with lots of useful information about the Summer term in Year 5.
Time has flown by and it's hard to believe this is the final term for your child at Badsey First School. This creates both excitement moving on to a new school, but also anxiety as your child begins to appreciate the changes ahead. Throughout the term, we will spend plenty of PSHCE sessions discussing their feelings and answering questions they may have. I will liaise with all the middle schools during the Summer term, ensuring they have all the academic data and social information they need regarding your child, to make their transition as smooth as possible. More transfer day information will follow either directly from the middle schools or via Badsey. If you have any questions regarding transition, please ask.

Who's who in Hawk Class?
I (Mrs Stirling) teach Hawk class with Mrs Atkinson as our teaching assistant on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Mrs Thomas teaches Hawk class every other Friday, when I have PPA time.
PE this half term is on a Tuesday and a Friday. One session will be indoor and one session outdoor.
Forest school this half term, will be on a Tuesday afternoon with Mr Holdaway, so please send your child in school uniform top half and old trousers/tracksuit. Please ensure your child has a waterproof coat and a pair of shoes/wellington boots to wear whilst out at Forest school.
Homework is set weekly. Please see the Homework page for details.
Your child will continue to bring home their Accelerated Reading book to read each evening. It is essential they bring their book back into school with them each day, as we use the books during their Reciprocal Reading session as well as during independent reading time or reading 1:1 with an adult. Please continue to sign their books after reading at home and ensure the book and Reading Record book are returned to school each day. Many thanks.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact either myself or Mrs Atkinson via the office or catch us in the playground, if you have any concerns.
