It has been wonderful to have the children at school again. The Year 3 team has been so impressed with how confidently and happily the children have returned. There are lots of smiling faces ( probably lots os smiling parents and carers too!). The children have quickly got into the routines which keep them safe in their bubbles, and have coped well with the changes in classroom set ups and playtimes etc. It has been great getting to know the children and doing lots of art and creative activities to ease our way back into school.

We are really looking forward to a fantastic first few weeks settling in and beginning the super topics in Year 3.  Remember to try to read as much as you can at home and keep practising times tables. Have a go at the home learning this week and HAVE FUN!  

A warm welcome to 5LS!

We have had an amazing first week together!

Two children wanted to share some of their experiences of our first week back with you. 

Before I came to school I wasn’t feeling nervous at all. I actually was feeling confident, calm and excited. When we were waiting to come in I had a nice feeling of seeing everyone again. the first day was really fun, we got to do a lot but it was very relaxed. I really like my teachers and am looking forward to spending my Year 5 with them.


When I came in for the first time it seemed really busy but I soon saw lots of familiar faces. I went down to my class to find all my friends. Then we went in and started to explore. All of this felt a bit strange but normal in a way. The best bit of the day was seeing everyone again and going out to play and have fun. Lunchtimes are a bit different but I have soon settled in and everything is starting to feel familiar now. I am excited about Year 5!


We are all looking forward to an action packed week to come.

Have a fun and restful weekend.


Year 5 get creative!

We have had a fantastic first week back at school in Year 5!

5RW enjoyed being artistic and used micrography to draw their self-portraits. They also displayed some beautiful handwriting, invented their own chocolate bar and learned how to stay healthy using the 10 a day strategies. It has been wonderful to get to know each other better and have fun as a class! Have a look at some of 5RW’s photos and work:
