Summer Term in Year 5


Welcome back to the summer term. This promises to be a jam-packed term with lots of new and exciting learning linked to the school’s involvement in Chester Zoo’s sustainable palm oil project.


We continue to be supported in class by Mrs McCready, with Mme Carter and Miss Shaw leading our learning on Wednesday 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 as this is what we look for every Friday. Children who meet this expectation will receive a Friday Prize token.


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 Spring concert, showcasing how much they have progressed on their string instrument since Christmas. We are very excited to continue these lessons every Monday, progressing onto exploring the full range of notes available on each string. A reminder that if instruments are taken home to practise (which is encouraged!) they must be brought in on Mondays for these sessions.



PE has changed to a Monday and Wednesday. This is to accommodate a coach from Chance to Shine who is coming in for this half term to support our cricket sessions. 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.


Water bottles

With the warmer weather approaching it is very important every child has a water bottle in school. 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.
