Year 5 Mrs Pendleton



Hello! My name is Mrs Pendleton, I am the current Year Five teacher and I have responsibility for the teaching and learning of Mathematics across the whole school. I have lived locally and been part of the St.Michael’s community for many, many years. Both of my children enjoyed their primary years here, so I feel very much at home.


As a Year 5 teacher, my aim is to make learning fun, and provide a happy, secure and challenging environment so that each child will reach their full potential and become confident, reflective and independent learners. I am very lucky to be teaching an enthusiastic class that enjoys new challenges and practical learning experiences. Being creative in our learning makes our classroom an exciting place to be.


Thank you for visiting our class page. I hope you find this to be an invaluable resource to keep up to date with all the exciting and wonderful things we are learning about in Year 5 this year.


If you have any worries or concerns please, do not hesitate to come and see me at any point during the year.


Today the children became archaeologists; they were investigating evidence - (POO!) to help them understand what The Vikings, Romans and Tudors ate in the past.

Collective Worship


So very proud of our class chaplains today. Together they delivered a wonderful collective worship to our class. 

The children created a focal point with artifacts, symbols and candles, read beautifully a scripture from the Bible and chose a hymn for the children to sing and reflect.

Thank You Royal British Legion

We loved being a part of your WW1 centenary celebrations.

Year 5 have had an amazing time at Halewood Leisure Centre during the past 8 weeks.The children loved their swimming lessons and made fantastic progress whilst having lots of fun.



Year 5 had an amazing time at the Boreatton Park PGL Centre in Shropshire. We climbed, jumped, leapt, slid, sang and tumbled our way around a huge range of activities including: rafting, giant swing, Jacob’s ladder, quad biking, zip wire and a campfire sing along.

We pushed ourselves to our limits, encouraged each other to have a go and often surprised ourselves at how much we could do when we were really determined.

Nothing's Impossible

Working with the amazing Joanne Wallace as part of their singing and music lessons, the children had the amazing opportunity to learn sign language to one of Joanne's songs - Nothing's Impossible. Such an amazing group of children, they make me so proud every single day.

Fire Safety

We would like to say a huge thank you to Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service for coming along to visit us today and for teaching us some vital lifesaving skills.


Author Visit

This week our Year 5 children were very lucky to be invited to meet author and screen writer Andy Briggs.

Andy really inspired the children and convinced them that a career in writing was within their reach. He then went on to autograph books bought by the children.

Ditton Life


We would like to say a huge thank you to our local historian Harry, who came into school to tell us all about the history of Ditton life in days gone by.


The children were fascinated with Harry’s tales of Ditton in the late 1930s and early 40s. They listened intently to the account Harry gave of his exploits and adventures of his life so many years ago.  





    100th Anniversary of Armistice day

Very proud to watch our lovely year 5 children along with some friends from Year 6 take part in a special remembrance parade to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War. It was very emotional watching them lay placards and wreaths in memory of the fallen soldiers. #veryproudteacher
