Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Our teachers in Year 5 are Mrs Parker and Mrs Cottee 

and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Bradley and Mrs Hennessey.

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please find an information video which I have put together on how you can support your child with learning to spell. These strategies can be used during as well as post Lockdown to inspire your child to learn their spellings and retain them.


I have also added a crib sheet of the strategies presented in the video as well as some additional strategies which aren't mentioned in the video.


Next week, the video will be moved to the Video Centre.


I hope you find it useful.

If your reading books need changing you can come to the canteen Monday-Thursday anytime between 1:30 and 3:00 pm starting next week (wb 11.01.21)
