This half term we have Miss McMullan an Associate teacher from Chester University with our class. 


I just wanted to introduce myself to you as I will be working with Year 5 until the end of this half term. I’m currently in my second year doing Primary Education with QTS at the University of Chester. I will be working with groups and teaching the class, the percentage time increasing to 60% towards the end.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and see me or email on 1806683@chester.ac.uk.

We are studying the Victorians this term in History, although this is linked with many other subjects. We will be reading a book called 'Cogheart' by Peter Bunzl in literacy, a fantastic dystopian story set in Victorian Britain. We will be looking at Victorian artists in Art.

In Science, we are going to be studying Forces and Magnets.

Musical Instruments

All instruments need to be in school every Thursday.

We will be learning our brass instruments on Thursday afternoons at 2.30. Please make sure that you have your instrument in school!! I would recommend that you all take home your instruments each week and practice as much as you can. I am learning the trumpet too and have found that even playing for 5 minutes whenever I can has really helped me to improve. Practice makes perfect!
