Mr James - 5J 2023 - 2024
Welcome to the Year 5J class page
In Year 5 ‘We try to follow Jesus in everything we do.’ We work together and help everyone shine and this positive attitude is reflected in our learning throughout the year. Although, we have a lot of work to do at St Margaret Mary’s we try to make our learning as fun and exciting as possible. If you ever pop into school, you'll see that we're always ready to welcome you with a smile.
Teacher: Mr James
Teaching assistants: Mrs Welfare
Reading books: It is important that all children bring their reading books in everyday. We appreciate your efforts in reading with your children daily.
Homework: Homework is given out every Thursday and must be returned completed by the following Tuesday. Spellings will be given out every Monday and should be practised daily. Our spelling quiz will take place every Friday. If you have any questions regarding homework, please do not hesitate to ask any member of the Year 5 staff.
We will work on our spellings and times tables every week.
PE: Our PE days are every Wednesday and Friday. It is necessary for children to have their PE kits on these days to ensure they have the required attire for comfort and safety purposes. All PE kits must be clearly labelled.
Uniform: Uniform should always be well-presented and it would be very helpful for staff if children could have their names on their uniform especially ties and jumpers.
Our expectations are high and we strive to foster the development of the children through provision of a planned, engaging, stimulating, safe and secure environment which is structured with developmental needs in mind. We also aim to stimulate emotional and spiritual growth.
At St Margaret Mary’s RC Primary School, our children are growing to be:
Grateful for our own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with our gifts, becoming men and women for others.
Attentive to our experience and to our vocation; and discerning about the choices we make and the effects of those choices.
Compassionate towards others, near and far, especially the less fortunate; and loving by our just actions and forgiving words.
Faith-filled in ours & their beliefs and hopeful for the future.
Eloquent and truthful in what we say of ourselves, the relations between people, and the world.
Learned, finding God in all things; and wise in the ways we use our learning for the common good. Curious about everything; and active in our engagement with the world, changing what we can for the better.
Intentional in the way we live and use the resources of the earth, guided by conscience; and prophetic in the example we set to others.
