Year 5                               

Mrs Goulding and Mrs Ward would like to welcome you to the fun and exciting place that is Year 5!
During their time with us we will nurture your child, encourage them to reach their potential and celebrate their individuality. We believe in forming strong relationships with every child, which enables them to feel confident and able to take the next steps on their learning journey.
We welcome all our parents to be a part of our learning community.

Learning Support:
We are fortunate to have following specialist teaching assistants working with us:
Mrs Hitchen: Maths and pastoral
Miss Price: Reading support
Mrs Jewell: English
Mrs Lowes: General Support
Mrs Barrow: Reading groups

Monday and Friday - children need to have their outdoor and indoor PE Kits in school on those days as PE is an important part of the National Curriculum
Thursday- (Thunderbolt Thursday) - Regular reading is encouraged and we aim for our children to read 50 pages a week. English and Maths homework is set as appropriate. Spellings are individualised to your child's needs. 
Homework Diary is provided to encourage independence
