Year 5 2018 - 2019

Miss Griffiths

Mrs McCready

Welcome to Year 5!


Welcome back to the Spring Term. I would first like to say a huge thank you to you all for the lovely and generous Christmas gifts I received. 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 McCready, with Mme Carter and Miss Shaw leading our learning on Wednesday afternoons.



It is great to see lots of children reading at home through the week and in doing so receive a Friday Prize token! 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 as this is what we look for every Friday.


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.


First Access

Year 5 delivered a wonderful Christmas concert, showcasing how much they have learnt on their string instrument of the first term. We are very excited to continue these lessons every Monday, progressing onto using the finger boards to explore more notes. 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 Thursday. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school on these days (though it is useful if PE kits are in school everyday 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.



Conway has been confirmed as the 5-8th February. Thank you to all of you who have paid via ParentPay as this constitutes consent for your child to attend the trip. If you haven’t done so, please could we ask you to complete payment as soon as is convenient. If you don’t intend for your child to attend, please let us know as soon as possible.


Water bottles

Children learn best when they are well hydrated, so please could you ensure your child has a named water bottle in school everyday 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. Though I will be available for a short time at the beginning of the school day, after school offers more time for conversation so feel free to come and see me once all children have been dismissed.


Best wishes, Miss Griffiths.
