Year 5/6 team

Welcome to Year 5.


Cousteau Class is being taught by Mr Smith and MacArthur Class is being taught by Mrs Bridle.


The teachers are supported in Year 5 by a terrific team of TA's - Miss Glenister (Cousteau) and Mrs Dickinson-Evans and Mrs Rice (MacArthur).


We are all really excited to welcome all of the students into Year 5 in what we are sure will be a fun packed, exciting year ahead.


During the first half-term, our project is Arizona. We can not wait to explore and find out some amazing facts about the 6th largest state located in the south west of the United States of America. We would love to hear about all the fantastic facts that you can find about Arizona and how it is different to where we live.


Next half-term, we will be launching into our next project which is called Destination: Space.  The project will involve lots of fun packed activities with our students becoming scientists (astronomers). Our learning values for the half-term will centre around thinking and creating. For more information please see the half-term planner below.


During the next half-term, we will be covering two separate projects. Firstly, we  will be looking at people who can inspire us and provide role-models to aspire to. Then for the final two weeks of the half-term, we will begin our next project which is a science based project focussing on chemistry. Our learning values for the half-term will centre around thinking and creating.


Important information

Cousteau Class have PE on a Tuesday afternoon (outdoor) and Thursday afternoon (with Mr Bridle).
