Meet The Teachers

Teaching Assistant

Hello Everyone and welcome to Year 5,

It was lovely to meet all the children in class this week and to make contact with those who can’t be back at the moment.  I thought it wise to let you know a little bit about our classroom procedures at the moment as they will be different from previous years.

I have given all of the children a book by Anne Fine to read as a starter to the year.  Once they have read this book we will help them choose a new one. Unfortunately they are not allowed to browse through our class library so if we do give them one they find to difficult or are really not enjoying please let us know by writing us a note in their reading record. Please try to read with your child at least 4 times a week.

PE this term will be on Monday, Thursday or Friday and the children only need pumps or trainers and shorts for their kit.

Spellings will be put on Seesaw once the children are given them on Monday morning.  There will be a spelling test on Friday mornings.

At the moment for homework we would like you to concentrate on reading, spellings and times tables using Rock stars times tables.  Our topic this term is Evacuation during World War II so any research the children can do about this would be helpful but unfortunately we are not allowed any written work from home to be brought into school.  If you want to show me something which has been done at home upload it on SeeSaw or the children can just tell us what they have found out.

This year the children have to sit facing forward and the majority are sitting with someone of the opposite gender.  We have to keep all our windows and doors open so please make sure they wrap up warm, frozen brains don’t work very well.

With all these constraints I have to say your children have been fantastic this week and Mrs Wallace and myself are really looking forward to getting to know them better.


Welcome back to school despite it being a bit different.

Rivers and Lifecycles

This term in Year Five we have some new class mates – 100 to be precise! We have taken delivery of 100 trout eggs and will be nurturing them and watching them grow until they are able to be released into the River Calder at Townley Park in Spring. These new additions to our class are part of our topic about Rivers and Lifecycles and we hope to integrate this subject into our art work this term with some river bank inspired textile work. In Literacy we are reading and then writing our own science fiction stories and in maths we will be tackling word problems, graphs and fractions. WE are also looking forward to Play in a Day later in the term.

Trout Release

Sadley we weren’t able to see our trout being released into the River Calder at Towneley Park but Neil have posted their release on You Tube.  Follow this link and see if you can spot your favourite trout leaving the bucket!!!!

Ribbles River Trust have sent me this information about Rivers and Climate change – some of you might like to look at it , CLICK on the icon below if you do!  Mrs Long

Neil has send me this homelearning pack about rivers.  It looks really interesting, especially if its a rainy afternoon.  I found the section about the 3 Ps (week 2) particularly illuminating!!!   Mrs L
