Good morning everyone.I woke up this morning hoping to see a world covered in sparkling snow, what a disappointment to find a grey sky and rain when I opened the curtains. Maybe it will arrive later.

Hello and happy new year to you all!

I know that this isn't the start to the year that we were hoping for or expecting but we will make sure that your child is able to progress with their learning as much as is possible over the coming days and weeks. I have set the learning for the remainder of this week on Purple Mash - please ensure your child completes this work and hands it in via Purple Mash. From Monday, however, there will be recorded lessons on Purple Mash for the children to follow with an activity for each lesson. It is compulsory for all children to complete each lesson, each day as they would have done if they were in school. I have added an email link to this page so if you are having difficulties, please feel free to contact me using this. I will be making phonecalls home throughout this week to check everyone has what they need to access remote learning. Take care and I'll speak to you all soon! 

Welcome to 5S's class page

It has been great getting back to school and getting to know all the children in 5S.  The first few weeks have been a time of getting used to the changes in school and we have been so impressed at how the children have adapted to these new arrangements.  5S is taught by Mrs Sudworth and  Miss Makda supports learning in class.

Meet the teacher
