My name is Mrs Wilde and I am the class teacher for Year 5.
My other roles include the KS2 leader, English lead and the mentor for trainee teachers. I have been teaching for over 23 years - which seems incredible as I don't feel old enough for that many years in the profession!
Miss.Gittins and Mrs.Watson will also be working with us this year and we are all excited for the year ahead. I know Orangutan Class will work really hard to reach their goals.
Why Orangutan Class?
This year we've chosen to name our classes after endangered animals. This fits with our continued work being a Rights Respecting School, where we not only strive to improve the rights within our school and community, but also the wider world.
Regular updates on class activities can be found via the Class Dojo where you can also get in touch with staff and share activities from home too.
We are reading......
Our new class read is - 'The light in everything' by Katya Balen, which is a glowing story of love, trust and families.
Last half term, our class read was - 'Call me Lion' by Camilla Chester and we were extremely fotunate to meet the author when she visited our school to work with us.
