Growing Together


Class 5


Teacher: Mrs K Kitchen

Higher Level Teaching Assistant: Mrs J Taylor


In Class 5 we like to operate with an open door policy as much as possible.  If you have any questions, both Mrs Taylor and I will do our best to be available should you need to speak to us at any point regarding anything at all. I cannot express how important having a solid, respectful communication with parents is to me. I believe it is key to making sure your children are happy and making progress in my class.

Important Information

PE days: Monday & Wednesday (please bring kit everyday just in case we are lucky enough to have extra PE!)


Homework is an opportunity to share what is happening in school and in your children's lessons. It is usually set on a Monday and may consist of a piece of maths work, a comprehension activity and spellings to learn. Homework must be completed and returned by the following Monday. This is  essential in preparation for children moving onto senior school and I do share the homework records with the senior school before they move up. Children should also be encouraged to read a variety of books regularly. Reading books can be taken home by children and recorded in their planners.


It is very important that children bring their planner to school every day. I would appreciate your co-operation in signing and reading through this weekly. Planners are checked and children are reminded if they have not been signed. Important information and communication will be shared through the planner.

Here is what we will be learning in class 5 this term!

Keeping In Touch

.If you would like to keep up to date and see what your children are doing in class 5 then head straight to Class Dojo. Mrs Taylor and I update this regularly with class stories and photos. Everyone has a unique access code and you can see how your children are rewarded! We also use Twitter @stgilesacademy and Facebook - both sites are open pages so there's no need to sign up!
