In Year 5, the children are supported by the following adults:
Jamie Patrick (Class teacher)
Sue Wilson (Learning Support)
Rosemary Bird-Hawkins (Teaching Assistant)
Amber Jones (Teaching Assistant)
We aim to create a learning environment that encourages academic development as well as social development. Ultimately, if a child is happy, they're happy to learn!
The broad range of topics will engage and encourage all children to develop a passion for learning throughout the school year and beyond.
Stars of the Week
18th June 2021
Sam C for a much improved attitude to learning and supporting his classmates in Maths and Humanities.
What have we been learning this week?
Year 5 showed great maturity during their PSHE lesson by asking and answering some important questions about how their bodies change during puberty.
The focus of the lesson was to explain how a girl’s body changes during puberty and understand the importance of looking after myself physically and emotionally.
Please support your child by answering any questions and feel free to contact Mr Patrick via the office email if you would like any information about the lesson content.

Alice's Mars Hab
Welcome back Djembe!
Week commencing 22nd February 2021
Inspired by the recent Mars Rover Perseverance landing and using our knowledge from our Space topic, children have been designing their own 'hab' or Mars habitat. There are plans for humans to visit in the next 10 years so these designs may one day become a reality.
We will decide the two winners when we are back at school, which will be entered into a competition!
Children also started to learn about social activist Isatou Ceesay as part of Gambian topic and part of Fair Trade Fortnight. Discover her story here: http://oneplasticbag.com/
