Year 5



Dear Year 5 families,


Welcome to Year 5! I am very excited to be working with you and teaching your children in the autumn term.  The year 5 curriculum has many engaging topics and I look forward to delving into these together.

I have been teaching for over 20 years, across years 1 to 7.  I really enjoy the teaching profession and have a particular passion for the subjects of mathematics and reading.  I believe that reading is the most valuable skill to gain, as it serves as a passport to all other areas of learning.  In addition to this, I also understand that every person is an individual, and therefore thinks and learns differently.  It is part of my job to help each pupil grow as a learner and as a person of good character.

I hope you have a wonderful summer break and I look forward to seeing you all on the 2nd September.
