Welcome to Year 5.
Our teaching team in Year 5 this year is Miss Parkinson who will be teaching on Monday, Thursday and Friday and Mrs Ballard, teaching on Tuesday and Wednesday supported by Miss Dean who is our teaching assistant.
Positivity and a growth mind set are a strong part of our classroom and we promote a safe and respectful working environment where everyone is encouraged and supported to do their best. We very much promote the idea that if we can’t do something, it is followed very quickly with YET!
We have a strong emphasis on English and maths and we try to make learning in these subjects both accessible to all but fun as well as challenging. Afternoons are spent on the more creative elements of the curriculum along with all the foundation subjects. Year 4 and Year 5 work together on a rolling programme for our theme lessons. Trips and visitors will be organised throughout the year to enhance the learning experience.
PE: Monday and Friday. Please ensure a full PE kit is in school every day.
Homework: issued every Friday, to be returned on Wednesdays. Spellings issued on Monday to be tested the following Monday.
Our classroom door is always open so if you would like to speak to a member of staff, then please feel free to pop in before or after school or contact us via the class dojo.
Miss Parkinson, Mrs Ballard & Miss Dean
