Welcome back to school, I hope you all had an enjoyable summer holiday. My name is Mrs Cookson and I am very much looking forward to working in my new role at Holy Cross and All Saints Primary school and teaching your children in Year 5. They have already made me feel extremely welcome and made a super start to the year!. We have many engaging texts to read and exciting topics to learn about this year including some new maths concepts to be explored; so be sure your children pack their Growth Mindsets every day! Mrs Stanganini will be teaching the children on Thursday afternoons and Friday mornings and Miss Higgins will continue to support the children with their learning each day. It is recommended that children bring a water bottle to school each day and please could all children have labelled PE kits and trainers in school for their Games sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Spellings and homework will be shared with the children on Fridays to be handed in the following Wednesday.
