Welcome to Year 5 - Kingfisher
Welcome to Year 5 Kingfisher
Welcome to the Kingfisher Class page!
I am Mr Marsh and I am delighted to be the Kingfisher class teacher.
This year I will be doing my very best to make sure that we catch up as much as possible, as well as address the emotions and worries that such a long time away may have caused.
My expectations are very high for Year 5 – I expect every child to give me their best in the classroom, and behaviour to meet the high standards that already exist in school. My classroom will be a challenging place for children to grow as learners, where they are happy to have a go and mistakes are a powerful tool rather than something to be scared of.
Homework will be set each Thursday and is due in on a Tuesday. It is also expected that children in Y5 read at least three times each week. Reading is an essential life skill, and needs to be nurtured from an early age, both at home and school. Next year, the children will sit their SATs, so now is the time to develop fluency, pace, and comprehension in reading.
Due to the current restrictions in place to enhance the safety of us all, if anyone needs to speak to me, let me know, and I will give you a telephone call.
