Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to Year 5, my name is Mr Bottomley and I have been teaching for 12 years. Last year was great and I really enjoyed working with my class.  I was even more thrilled when Miss Bowers said that I will be working with them again, this year.  I enjoy all sports and plan to use my enthusiasm to help further develop the sport at school. I am also the subject leader for Computing. At home I love spending time with my little girls. Taylor has just started school, so it will be me going to parent’s evening this year.  Katie is 2 and her personality is growing on a daily basis.

PE will be taking place every Friday, so please make sure that your PE kit is in school. These sessions will be taken by a PE coach.  We will be also keeping active by taking part in the Daily Mile as well as our walking to school scheme.  I wonder how many badges you can achieve this year.

Our topics this year are World War 2, The Ancient Greeks and The Mayans.  In Science we will be looking at Space, Life Cycles and Forces to name just a few.  I have set the children a challenge on Mathletics so make sure that we keep earning those Gold Bars.
