|Hello, I am Mrs Moorby-Lewis and I will be teaching Ash class on Monday - Thursday this year. I have taught in Key Stage 2 for fourteen years, and have taught at The Pines since 2015. When I am not working, I love dancing, playing hockey and watching football. I also love listening to music and playing my flute and piano. My favourite thing to do is visit new places with my family. I am really looking forward to teaching Year 5 again this year and I can't wait to see what we'll achieve together in Ash Class.
Meet the Teacher Presentation - September 2023
Our main classroom door for the start and end of the school day is at the back of the classroom opening onto the driveway.
Classroom doors open at 8:40am and the school day ends at 3:10pm.
Our regular PE lessons are as follows:
Indoor PE - Thursday
Outdoor PE - Monday
On these days, children should come to school wearing their PE kit.
This term, Year 5 will be learning about Mexico and the Maya civilization. We will be spending the first half term exploring Mexico, a region the Maya's inhabited before moving onto how the Maya's lived and what they believed in. Within our English lessons, we will be writing adventure stories. We are reading 'The Explorer' by Katherine Rundell. We will develop our fraction skills in Maths whilst recapping some multiplication and division. In Art we will be exploring shading techniques before looking at artwork by Rosalind Monks. Children are expected to practice their times tables at home and read at home daily to support their learning in class.
At the moment, we are particularly focusing on this learning:
English (Story writing):
Simple, compound and complex sentences
Past progressive verb tenses
Fractions - equivalent fractions, adding and subtracting fractions, ordering and comparing fractions
Forces and properties of materials
For information on Home Learning in Year 5 please see the guidance below:
