The Class 5 Teacher is Mr Jones
This year Mr Jones will be teaching Class 5. I am very excited about joining Ramsbury Primary School as I return to the UK after six years overseas; teaching in Dubai either side of eight months backpacking through South America. Prior to my time in Dubai I taught in schools in Hull and East Yorkshire for a decade; always in either Year 5 or Year 6. I am enthused about the year ahead and the opportunity to work with your children.
The focus of teaching and learning for the first term will be the Ancient Greeks. We have already started our year by looking at the story of Pandora’s Box; which we have used as the inspiration for some art and poetry writing in the opening week. We will use a variety of other famous Greek stories as starting points for our work in the coming weeks; so be prepared for tales of Zeus, Medusa and the Minotaur making their way home!
Details of key dates, homework and how to support your child’s learning at home can be found in the downloadable Parents Curriculum Letter, the link to which is below. On the Class 5 homepage there are also links to a number of resources, which we hope you will find useful.
It has been great to meet so many of you already on the playground at pick up and I look forward to working with you this year. Please do not hesitate to come and see me should you have any queries through the course of the year.
Term 3 French – Il fait froid!
We are still in Québec for the start of this term for the Festival of Ice, learning about winter sports and the cold weather! We will then build on the vocabulary we learned last term from reading our French penpals’ letters about family members and we will learn how to describe our own families.
