Years 5 & 6 Choir Performances

This week, the Years 5 & 6 choir performed to the residents of two local nursing homes: Jesmund and Abbeyfeild. It was a wonderful experience for both the children and the residents and they have been invited back to perform again in the spring term! 

Class Party Update: If children are wearing a Winter or Christmas top or accessory tomorrow, they can wear it to school rather than bring it to change in to. 


Class Parties : Thursday 15th December

The children will be having their class parties on Thursday 15th December. Children must come to school in full uniform, but can bring in their Winter/Christmas top and or accessory from last week to change into if they wish.


The children do not need to bring in any food or drink.

Our Linguascope subscription has been renewed for this academic year. The login details have been shared with you via email, as we cannot post these online. Linguascope is a fantastic resource which allows children to practise their skills in a range of languages through games and interactive activities. We will be using some of these in our KS2 French lessons, but we would also love to encourage the children to practise at home. To access Linguascope, you can either download the app or visit



Linguascope | The World's Number 1 Interactive Language Learning Platform for Schools

Our language games and activities, organised in over 140 topic areas, are developed to match curriculum requirements. Each topic area is composed of a series of activities and accompanied by a printable worksheet for extension or consolidation work.



Wellbeing Award for Schools 2022-2025

We are delighted to say that on 17/11/22 Avenue were re-accredited with the Wellbeing Award for Schools. This is truly a whole school effort and is an external validation of what we already knew: that Health and Wellbeing is at the heart of our school and influences everything that we do. Thank you to all the Parents and Carers who filled in surveys for the award at the end of last year and the start of this year. 


Winter Top Day: Thursday 8th December

The children are invited to wear a winter or Christmas themed top or hair accessory on Thursday 8th December (with normal school uniform bottoms and shoes).

Reading Suggestions for Year Five 


Last week, a parent asked for a copy of the "Year Five Reading Trail" which I thought would be useful for all of you to look at, so I've shared it below. The idea is to encourage children to read by following the trail and reading all of the books included. I would avoid buying/borrowing "Stig of the Dump" as we use this book during Guided Reading lessons this half term. Happy Reading !


Mrs Maddock

Year Five Leader


Dear Parents/Carers,

Due to rising cases of Covid among both staff and pupils, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the face to face Parent Forum Meetings scheduled for next week.


So that you still have the information, Year Group Leaders will record the contents of the meeting and they will be shared with you by 30/09/22.


The safety of our school community is always our first priority and we thank you for your understanding.

Anglo Saxon House-building Activity- Week Beginning 10th October.



During the week beginning 10th October,  children in Year Five will have the exciting opportunity to build their own Anglo Saxon dwelling. To help with the creation of their models they will need a cardboard box into school (not too thick so it can easily be cut with school scissors). All other materials will be provided by school, however if your child wishes to bring in additional materials, we are happy for them to do so. 

Could all resources be brought into school during the week beginning 3rd October. 


Many thanks for your support, 


The Year Five Team

We are delighted to invite you to see your child’s new classroom, and meet their new teacher on Thursday 8th September 3.15 – 3.45


Please collect your child as usual and then wait in the playground. As soon as the Teachers have returned to the classroom, we will let you in.


We look forward to seeing you.


We are all really looking forward to seeing the children on Monday 5th September. Your children’s teachers have planned wonderful activities to welcome the children into their new classes and will be spending time getting to know your child and helping them feel confident as they begin the new year.


Morning drop-off: Please drop off your child at the Avenue Road gate. The gates will be open 8:10am – 8:30am. The children will then make their way down the path to the Jubilee playground where they will proceed to their new classrooms.


If you also have a child in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, please drop and collect your children off via the Dorset Road gate and follow the guidance on your younger child’s pick-up times and locations. Please note, only children with siblings in Nursery to Year 2 should use the Dorset Road gate.


Please remember that children must be in the correct school uniform which should be clearly labelled with their name and class. (see our school website for full details of the uniform policy). Although resources will be provided in school, if your child wishes to bring their own pencil cases then they can but please ensure that this, and the contents, is fully labelled.


Please ensure that your child’s P.E kit is in school from the start of term and again,  each item is clearly labelled with their name and class.  The children will require their P.E. kit during the first week of school and this should include trainers for outdoor use. Smart watches are not permitted in school, due to safeguarding reasons.


The children will also require a labelled swimming kit as they will start swimming on the 5th September.
