Teachers: Mr Cowley & Mr. Smith

In Year 5, Mr Smith and Mrs Mansouri-Johnson encourage us to ‘give it a go’ even if we don’t succeed. We are also encouraged to be independent and creative in our learning and to think for ourselves and not to always rely on others.  This will help us to become more confident learners and not fear failure and will help prepare us for life at Secondary School.

We begin our mornings by looking back at our work from the previous day and act upon any constructive marking given in order to try and help us to deepen our knowledge. After that, we focus on our English and Maths lessons. We also have guided reading sessions and SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) sessions.

PE lessons will be on Wednesday and Friday, please remember your kit.

Homework will be given out on Fridays to be returned by Wednesday.

Our teachers hope that by the end of the year we will be confident, independent and enthusiastic learners, ready to face the challenges of our final year at Primary School.
