Welcome to Class 5

Hello and welcome to Class 5! My name is Miss Orviss, I am the class teacher and my fabulous TA Mrs Fordham. 

In Class 5, we like to work hard and play hard. We are very competitive in Class 5, we always do everything to the best of our ability. 

We always make sure to inject some fun, positivity and celebration into our week. From our weekly reading raffle to funny Friday and biscuit Bingo. Our sweet tin and biscuit barrel are always fully stocked!

We cover some brilliant topics, such as: 

  • Coding 
  • Printing
  • The American revolution
  • Natural disasters
  • Chemistry
  • Australasia 
  • The slave trade
  • Electricity
  • Architecture 

We also have a class set of glockenspiels which we learn to play in year 5, which the children love. Last year, we learnt to play the opening to ‘All I want for Christmas is you’ by Mariah Carey for our Christmas performance. 

I love to think up creative, exciting lessons so that the children have fun while they learn. From music videos to science experiments, we try to make the learning as fun, engaging and memorable as possible.

We love to read in Class 5, we have a beautiful reading area full of a range of exciting texts. Children are encouraged to read in school and at home as much as possible because reading is the key to success! We enjoy a class story daily, we are currently reading ‘The Ickabog’ by J.K Rowling.
