Year 5 2021 - 2022
Welcome back to the Spring Term. I would first like to say a huge thank you for all the generous Christmas cards, gifts and messages 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 Gardiner, with Mme Carter and Mrs Williams leading our learning on Tuesday afternoons.
It is great to see some children reading at home through the week and in doing so receive a Friday Prize token, however, there are also a number of children whose reading records we rarely see. 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 would be great to give out more reading stripes this term.
Homework & Spellings
Schedules remain the same for homework and spellings. Spelling sheets have already been emailed to you, but you can also find a copy on our class page of the school website.
I hope you enjoyed watching Year 5’s virtual Christmas concert, showcasing how much they have learnt on their string instrument in 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 Tuesday 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 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. 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.
