Welcome to Year 5
Meet the Staff
Favourite subject to teach:
It has to be English! I love teaching children to use their imagination and creativity to express their ideas and thoughts.
The Harry Potter books are amazing! I love to read books that are magical and enchanting as they take me away to another world.
My favourite author is Robert Dinsdale. He writes fantasy stories which are one of my favourite genres to read.
Anything by Ed Sheeran!
I love curling up with a cup of coffee and a good book. I also enjoy walking my dog, Arlo. He is a gentle giant!
Favourite subject to teach:
In Year 5, the children learn how to be independent learners and are encouraged to take risks and push themselves to be the best they can be. Through a stimulating and challenging environment, children will experience fun and engaging lessons from all areas of the curriculum not just the core subjects.
Year 5 provides the opportunity to learn beyond the classroom through our residential trip to north Wales. We also enjoy using the school garden and the school grouds as often as we can! Children will also be taught by a specialist teacher in several foundation subject areas including PE, Music and French.
Our topics in Year 5 fully support the schools wider ethos of creating global citizens, with a knowledge of modern British values. More about the history and geography topics that we will be studying this year can be found below. Throughout the year, we take part in many initiatives that support work undertaken by the children in class such as Anti-Bullying Week and Black History Month.
We believe every child has the right to feel safe and comfortable in our classroom to give them the platform strive for greatness over the year. We hope that all Year 5 children will enjoy the year, overcome challenges and reach their targets, so that they are ready for their transition to Year 6 and the added responsibilities which come with this.
