My name is Mrs. Jolly and I am the class teacher for Year 5. We are so lucky this year to have Mrs Southern, Ms Conroy, Mrs Bownes and Mr Thomson our Key Stage 2 Teaching Assistants.
Year 5 is an exciting and challenging year for the children. In Upper Key Stage 2, children are expected to take a more mature and independent approach towards learning. These skills are developed throughout the year during a variety of tasks and lessons and provide the key foundations that prepare our children for the challenges of year 6.
This year, your child will enjoy a wide and varied range of lessons. Our Creative Curriculum topics include: Vikings and Anglo Saxons, Railways and Benin. Our Science will see them journeying further afield into OUTER SPACE - but don't worry, they'll be back for home time! In Maths, they will continue to develop their skills in number, shape and measures and use them to solve real life problems. In Music, the children will be learning to play the ukulele with me every Tuesday afternoon.
Our P.E. sessions will be held on Friday afternoon (Autumn Term) , so please ensure that your child comes into school in their kit on that day.
Please call in after school should you have any questions or concerns about your child's learning.
