Y5 Ford



Hi everybody! Welcome to the newly formed Ford Class with Miss Conneely (Class Teacher) and Mrs Ledger (Teaching Assistant). 

We're going to whizz into this first half-term by learning all about forces, mechanisms and prototypes in the remit of roller-coasters and fairground rides! 

Our learning will be complemented with a trip to Alton Towers to see and feel the forces we've been learning about in action! Exciting!


Our class text will be 'Foreverland' by Nicole Kear.

Big Write:

Big write's are a really important aspect of our learning in school and will take place on a Thursday after lots of scaffolding, input and support in the days prior. Mrs Ledger and I can't wait to see how your writing and imagination has matured as you come into Y5. 



Nurturing and teaching your children is a privilege and both Mrs Ledger and I will be here to support with any questions, queries or concerns you may have. For a quick chat or message about your child, I will be available at the classroom door on entry and at the end of the day however if you have a concern that may require more time, please send me a dojo so that I can arrange a telephone conversation or meeting when is convenient for us both! 


We're really looking forward to hopefully a more 'normal' year and thank you in advance for your support as we start the new year on the 2nd September!
