The Lost Thing will allow the children to explore emotions and feelings linked to belonging.  After watching the animation of the film and the sharing of the book, the children will debate whether the use of technology takes over your life and this will lead to persuasive writing. In art, the children will create their own Lost Thing in the style of the illustrator and these will be shared in a gallery at the end of the project. 


Home Learning

For our Lost Thing project, you can choose one home learning activity to complete below. Your home learning is due Thursday 23rd September 2021.

The children will continue to get weekly spellings and timetable practice. Spellings will be put into your child’s diary every Friday to be tested on the following Friday.


We also ask that you please read with your child at least 4 times a week and sign your child’s home school diary. Every time your child reads at least 4 time a week, they will receive a raffle ticket which will be put into a draw at the end of each half term to potentially win a prize.



This half term King Campus PE sessions will be held on a Tuesday and Friday. Kirk Campus PE Sessions will be on a Wednesday and Thursday.  One session of PE will be lead by Stow Sport, who will be focusing on netball and the other session will be led by your child’s class teacher and will be doing dance.

We recommend children keep their PE kit in school all week in case of any last minute changes and take them home at the end of the week to be washed. As it is coming into Autumn, please can children bring in warm sports wear as we will be going outside.

Forest School sessions will be happening this term for Year 5 in both campuses however dates are still being finalised. Once we are aware of the dates we will send this information out to parents. When Forest School does happen it will be in the morning As Forest School will be taught in the morning, children are allowed to arrive at school in forest school kit but must get changed back into school uniform after their lesson. Please also bring your own wellies and spare socks.


Other information

Just a reminder the reading challenge has started again. Your child has been given a reading challenge sheet to complete. If children complete the challenge at the end of the academic year they will receive a certificate and be entered into a prize draw. So lets get reading!


Also, we will be putting log in details in your child’s school diary for Oxford Reading Buddy, Times Table Rock Stars and Purple Mash. These are online resources your child is using at school to support reading, times tables and computing. Your child can use their log in details at home so they can continue practicing.


Lastly, Parents and Guardians, please if you have any concerns or questions your first port of call is your child’s class teacher. If the class teacher is unable to help then you must speak to the Year Leader. After that, this could be passed to a member of SLT and then Assistant Head of Campus or Head of Campus.
