Welcome to Year 5!
I am delighted to welcome you and your child to Year 5!
This is going to be an exciting and busy term for all of us and hopefully your child will enjoy all the challenges and interesting activities that I have planned for them. Everyone has settled into Year 5 exceptionally well, and all are eager to continue with their learning and further develop in their time in Year 5. We have lots to look forward to this year, including making our very own Greek Urns, and also, later on in the year, a trip to the Stockport Air Raid Shelters.
The children will be developing their English skills by creating their own diary entry based on a famous Greek Myth and also creating their very own Greek Myth. We will be extending our Maths skills by focusing on children’s reasoning and Mental Maths application.
Learning in Year 5 is much more independent; however we love to have the opportunity to work in groups to build upon our creativity and problem solving skills. We are constantly developing our team work skills (one of Greave's personal five capabilities) by working collaboratively during learning time.
The class is very fortunate to have the support of Mrs Coulson, who will be working with us and assisting our learning aims throughout the year.
I believe that as teachers it’s important that we build children’s confidence and equip them with the skills and knowledge they need in order to lead a successful and happy life, whilst achieving the best they can.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in contact, as my door is always open.
