Welcome to 5L

Your class teacher is Miss Lacey and your teaching assistant is Mrs Farley.   This year we have a great group of children, who all seem eager to return to school and I'm sure they hope, like we do, for a more 'nomal' year of teaching, free from home learning disturbances.   We are very excited about the year ahead together.  Year 5 is full of a challenging, exciting curriculum.  Throughout the year, we will work hard in both Maths and English in the beginning of the day but have plenty of time to explore other subjects in the afternoon.  


The Year 5 class will be reading Friend or Foe by Micheal Morporgo to inspire our work this halfterm.  The book will allow us the chance to investigate the history of WW2, and learn about local issues such as evacuation.  All of our writing will be based on this novel and the children will get a chance to write letters and write persuasviely as we work through it.  They will also study British war artists, Paul Nash and Henri Moore and complete work in their sytle.  Stay tuned for some examples of work which will be displayed on this page. 


Last year, we all became much more comfortable using Google Classroom when the whole school or groups of children needed to isolate. Your child has their own email address and password to log on.   We do try to use Google Classroom in the class so that children feel more comfortable using it at home.  I appreciate that it is a big change for many (including myself) so please see me for any help or advice and remember homework can always be completed on paper if children are struggling to submit it virtually.
