welcome to griffin class (year 5&6)

Griffin are taught by Mrs Deighton and the children are supported every day in class by Mrs Knight. 

Welcome to Year 5/6.  I hope you find the information on this page useful. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns or worries or if you just want to ask me a quick question.  I am very excited about having my own class again after three years and am looking forward to some exciting learning opportunities.  This year, the Key Stage 2 team will be working very closely together in order to ensure consistency.  Our topic this half term is 'Vikings'.  Already, the children are extremely excited about this and have all made fabulous first impressions.

Details of topic homework will be available on this page but weekly maths, English and spelling homework will be sent home with the children.  This will usually be on a Friday and will be due in the following Thursday.  

As  I need to maintain my duties as deputy headteacher, Miss Jackson will be teaching on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon but I am usually available to deal with anything which may arise.

I am very much looking forward to a fantastic year with amazing children.

Year 5/6 have already been very busy with team building activities and creating their own Viking characters.  Our classroom is really beginning to take shape.

Below is our plan for the first half-term.  It's a brilliant first topic to start our year off.  If you have any books or artifacts for us to see, please send these in for us to look at.  Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
