Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Our teachers in Year 5 are Mrs Parker and Mrs Cottee

and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Bradley.

Hi everyone,


we hope you have had a lovely Christmas break and we are looking forward to welcoming you back tomorrow. As we said before Christmas, we will be starting a new book in English  'Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief'. If you have a copy at home, it would be helpful to bring it with you tomorrow. You can order copies on line to arrive with you in the next week or so (this would be very helpful). Don't forget to come with your pencil cases stocked up and a smile on your face.


See you tomorrow- Mrs Parker and Mrs Cottee.

Notes from your Teachers

You will now find all messages relating to Home Learning on Teams 




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.
