Gedney Drove End Primary School


Welcome to Norway class!

Class teacher: Mrs L. Richardson

Teaching assistant: Mr S. Richardson

For the summer term, Norway will be taught by Mr Thompson and Mr Massey. Together, they will continue to encourage the values of Norway class: learning, listening to each other, working together, and never giving up.

It’s a busy Summer Term with upcoming Year 6 SATs, as well as preparing for the end of year production!  If adults at home would like to support us mastering these important spellings, you can download a full list to help prepare your child.

Continuing with the summer theme, please check your child has a suitable water bottle in school, ensure your child has an appropriate polo top, so they can remove their jumper and consider shorts on hot day! This will help us all to keep cool, hydrated and comfy.

In year 5 and 6, we try to provide the children with extra responsibilities around the school such as: Playground Buddies, House and Vice Captains, Lunchtime Leaders and School Councillors. We place a big emphasis on the children learning to become responsible citizens, who are aware of their roles, rights and responsibilities for themselves and towards the community.

Other important information:

PE is on a Monday and Friday. Please ensure your child has the full and appropriate (indoor and outdoor) PE kit with them on these days, including our new federation hoodies. Children with long hair should have their hair tied up, and any watches or jewellery need to be removed. Swimming is on alternate Mondays. Please check the newsletter for dates.

Homework will be set on Fridays and will normally be due in the following Friday. Increasingly, the children will be asked to complete homework tasks using online resources and sites such as ActiveLearn and TTRockstars. Through the week, times tables and spellings should be practised and reading should take place every night (this can be to an adult or independently).

If you have any questions or concerns, please do come and speak to us. We want your child to be safe and happy, and enjoy school. Keep checking back for updates to our webpage and don’t forget to visit Edi’s blog for the latest news!
