Believe and Achieve

Year 5

“You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think”
– A.A. Milne/Christopher Robin

 

In Year 5 our teacher is Mrs Marshall and our amazing teaching assistant is Miss Clemmons. They want every child in the class to achieve their full potential and make good progress! In class 5 we love books and love to read for pleasure. We really enjoy our topic work and it inspires us to produce some fabulous pieces of writing and creative art work.

How your child is learning at home is very important. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to email the School, and we will help you as best we can.

Key Dates

This half-term we have some key dates coming up..

  • Easter Fair – Thursday 4th April 2019 13:30-15:00.

Literacy

In our Literacy lessons we have been working on character descriptions. We have been looking at examples of character descriptions and love that the writer’s techniques make us want to read on! We can’t wait to show off our polished work when we have completed it!

In Year 5 we also have a passion for reading and enjoy reading for pleasure. Each month we will be looking at a different author; learning about their life and the books that they have written. This month our author of the month is Liz Pichon.
