Welcome to Year 5. As the class teacher, I am supported by teaching assistants: Mrs Rollitt (Mondays and Tuesdays) and Mrs Wilcock (Wednesday to Friday). Mrs Miles works in the class directly supporting a pupil.
Enjoyment is key for me in a child's learning experience and I endeavor to make learning fun and engaging across the curriculum. At the outset of the year and throughout it, I am keen to explore and challenge children's perceptions of each subject area. In doing so, I see my role in being to help them discover or foster existing passions and talents; or simply help them find new ways of looking and learning about things they may have previously dismissed or thought they lack interest or ability in. By the end of their year, I aim to ensure they leave having progressed academically, socially, morally and spiritually, ready to take on the challenges of Year Six and beyond.
As the PE Lead in the school, I am a huge advocate of the benefit that sport and exercise has on all round wellbeing; and the skills it develops in resilience, determination and teamwork. This too, hopefully permeates my teaching in Year 5 (not just in PE).
A selection of topics this year include: Disasters, Earth Moon & Space, Migration and The Tudors.
