Mrs Cuff is our class teacher. We are helped in our classroom by Mrs Davies and Mrs Simpson, who are our resident SPaG experts and Grammar Sherriffs!
We are the oldest in school and therefore try to always be shining examples to the rest of St Bernadette’s in our words and actions around school as well as our hard working attitudes in class.
Because of our current risk assessment measures in relation to COVID 19, extended school clubs are not taking place this year (2020-21), therefore, our Year 5 children were unable to complete the upload of Webwatcher news.
Please find attached details of the Autumn 2020 Curriculum Newsletter, this provides a summary of the topics that your children will be studying this term.
We have reviewed our curriculum offer in Autumn to assist the recovery process for all our pupils following their prolonged absence from school as a result of school closures in March 2020. We aim to reignite the flame of learning in each child by restoring the children’s mental health and rebuilding their resilience allowing them to become resilient learners again.
In addition, the attached parent’s letter provides details of Religious Education topics.
Each term our Year 5 children upload information collated from each class as part of one of our Extended school Clubs. All information below is written by the children for parents and interested parties to gain a deeper insight into what fun and interesting activities each class are partaking in each term.
