Mrs Owens Mr Gaughan

Welcome back Year 5 and 6! We have lots of exciting and challenging lessons to look forward to this half term. Our teachers are Mrs Owens Monday - Thursday and Mr Gaughan on a Friday and our fantastic teaching assistant is Miss Cooper.


Take a look at what we have planned this half term in our subjects:

  • Spellings - the children will get spellings to learn each week and these will go home every Monday, ready for them to learn for a test the following Monday. There will be some activities for them to complete to help them
  • At the minute all other homework will be given to children on sheets on a Friday. Due to current guidelines, the children must keep these worksheets at home.
  • Children are expected to read regularly at home and have their reading records signed. I suggest reading every evening, reading this often will have a huge impact on the children's progress. Children will come into school and move their name on our reading ladder to show the number of books they have read. 
  • PE this term will be on a Monday afternoon. The children will need to keep their kit in school until the end of the term when they will be able to bring it home to wash.


We are a very friendly team and if you would like to speak to any of us about anything feel free to grab us before or after school or send us a message through our Class Dojo page and we can arrange a convenient time to meet.
