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 have settled back into the school year very well, despite the challenges.   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 using The Hunter by Paul Geraghty to inspire our work this halfterm.  The book will allow us the chance to investigate animals, specifically African animals and their life cycles.  We will study an African Artist , Gagonka and create African art using it as inspiration.  In Literacy, we will research elephants and write a story about a journey in an African jungle.  We will study Fair Trade and find the links of imports and exports from Africa. 


​​​We are setting up the facility to be able to provide work for children through Google Classroom should the whole school or groups of children need 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.
