Who are the Year 5 teachers?

Miss Philippou enjoys going to the cinema and eating salted popcorn. She loves running and yoga. Miss Philippou also speaks fluent Greek!


Mrs Williams enjoys reading and spending time outdoors. She loves nothing more than a 'film night' with her sons; to cuddle on the sofa with some snacks and a mug of hot chocolate!


What can you do at home to help?

  • Read with your child regularly.
  • Practise times tables.

Reading is the key to success. Listen to your child/ren read as often as possible. Your child has access to their own Reading Buddy account. More information about this is available on the Home Learning page. They also have access to which offers a fantastic selection of free ebooks. Just visit the website and select 'My Class Login'. Next, enter the class name & my class password which are both: TPP1 

This half term we are reading 'The Ratburger' by David Walliams.


Helping your child to learn their 2, 5, 10, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 7 times tables (in this order) will benefit them greatly. Times tables are the key building blocks to mathematics. It makes it far quicker and easier for children to work out maths problems in their heads. 


Your child/ren has access to Mathletics, Purple Mash and Hwb. All of which require a password and username. For more information visit the Home Learning page


There is always an opportunity for children to learn from what's going on around them. For example, when cooking involve your child in measuring the ingredients to improve their numeracy skills, play games (such as Heads Up, charades) to develop their oracy and confidence, or exploring the local environment to discuss key issues such as littering and pollution. 


Take a look at our Project Launch...



During our immersion day, the children decided they would like to find out about the natural light in the World, inspirational leaders, how people make a difference and how lightbulbs work. 


When finding out about natural light we will be researching the Northern Lights.  We will be looking at Rosa Parks, Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King Junior to discover how they lit up the world with their actions.  We will be discussing ways that we can make a difference and light up the lives of people in our community.  When investigating lightbulbs we will be learning about how electricity is transferred from one place to another. If you think that you would be able to contribute to any of the work covered in our topic please email FAO Year 5 teachers.




With the current situation, it is a little tricky to talk to us at the start or end of the school day. If you would like to chat to us, we kindly ask that you contact the school office on 01633817161 or via email and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
