Hello! My name is Mrs Pendleton and I am so excited to be your child's year 5 class teacher!
I am one of two Year Five teachers this year and I have responsibility for the teaching and learning of Mathematics across the 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 the children begin their new journey in upper Key Stage 2, it is lovely to see how eager they all are to be back in school and considering the many changes to their usual school routines; they have started the term really well and have settled into work quickly and sensibly.
We have lots of interesting and exciting learning opportunities planned for the year ahead and my aim is to provide a happy, secure and challenging environment so that each child will reach their full potential and become confident, independent and enthusiastic learners. There will be lots of new challenges and practical learning experiences for them to enjoy, making 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.
Please remember that children make better progress if teachers and parents work closely together. If you are worried about anything, do not hesitate to contact me at any point during the year.
The children are thoroughly enjoying their guitar lessons. They are learning how to form and strum and are beginning to build up a really good chord vocabulary
Focusing their drawing skills on observation, shape and line, the children produced some wonderful symmetrical art linked to our current science topic 'Animals Including Humans'. As you can see the results are excellent.
The children thoroughly enjoyed working with ‘Progressive Sports’ on a specially devised programme that gives them strategies to deal with their mental health and well-being.
The programme focuses on resilience, problem solving, team work, growth mind-set and physical activity. The children were so enthusiastic, they involved themselves fully in all the activities and worked really well together.
