About Our Year Group

Miss Winter - Class K

Mrs Arundell - Class L

Support Staff: Mrs Perrin, Mrs Finn and Mrs Williams

Mrs Arundell and Miss Winter are delighted to be teaching Y5 this year. They have lots of creative activities planned for the children with many visitors joining them over the year to enhance the curriculum. Y5 is such an important year group and high standards are expected. More homework is set and children must show far greater independence. However, learning with a fun element is the way forward.

Class L Mass (3 images)

Everyone had a part to play in the Class L Mass today. As the Year of Mercy is drawing to a close, the children wanted the theme of the Mass to be mercy. For the Offertory, all the children made a Garden of Mercy with their flowers of forgiveness. They also made a Mercy Tree where they hung their leaves with petitions of mercy. These were signs that their aim was to be merciful like the Father.
