Year 5 2020 - 2021

Miss Griffiths

Year 5 

Welcome back to the Summer Term. I hope you all had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday and are feeling refreshed for this new term. 

We continue to be supported in class by Mrs Gardiner, with Mme Carter and Miss Shaw leading our learning on Tuesday afternoons. 



A reminder that the expectation is for children to read to an adult three times a week, with the adult making an associated comment in their red reading records. It is wonderful to be able to reward children who meet this target with a Friday Prize token. Please can we ask that any school reading books are returned as soon as possible as our supplies are dwindling!


Homework & Spellings

Schedules remain the same for homework and spellings. Spelling sheets should have already come home with your child, however if they have been misplaced you can find a copy on our class page of the school website.

Please be advised that your child has constant access to the online learning platforms, like TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed, so can access them at any time to practise their skills.


First Access

We are continuing to make excellent progress in these lessons every Monday, adding more and more fingers to the finger boards. We hope to be able to bring another virtual concert to you this term. A reminder that if instruments are taken home to practise (which is encouraged!) they must be brought in on Mondays for these sessions.



PE remains on a Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school on these days (though it is useful if PE kits are in school every day in case of hall swaps, etc). PE kit should include appropriate footwear (pumps for indoor activities and trainers for outdoor activities), a jumper (weather dependent) and, for girls, spare socks if they tend to wear tights. 



Children learn best when they are well hydrated, so please could you ensure your child has a named water bottle in school every day to be kept at the Hydration Station in the classroom. They will have opportunities to refill these at the water fountain throughout the day.



As ever, I am always happy to discuss any worries, concerns or general queries you may have. Due to the current circumstances, we ask that only vital messages are passed on at the start and end of the day. You can always contact me via email or by telephoning the school office and we can arrange a mutually convenient time for a chat to discuss any other issues. 


Best wishes, Miss Griffiths.
