A huge welcome to our fantastic class of 31 children, lead by our guinea pig enthusiast Mr Almeida!


Entering our classroom you will be welcomed with huge smiles and hard workers, where we know how to have a laugh and relax but also knuckle down and give the task at hand 100% percent! 



Who's Who?

Here in Year 5 we are ever so lucky to be working with some fantastic individuals. Our year 5 team includes:


Mr Almeida: Class Teacher

Miss Cholerton: Class Teacher

Mrs Kinderman: Teaching Assistant

Meet the Teacher (again)!

Summer 1


Welcome back to another half term full of excitement, engagement and learning. This term children will be exploring Long Eaton in our local area study. We will be trawling through the archives and discovering what made Long Eaton go from a small agricultural village to a bustling town (and no it wasn't just because we gained another Mc Donalds as the children may believe haha!) We will also be looking at Design Technology, creating our own biscuits! 




Planners will be checked on a Friday so please feel free to leave a note if you wish. The homework this term will be on Mymaths, TTrockstars, SPaG, Spelling Shed and Reading. Spellings will need to be completed weekly, while the others will be every other week (Children will note down in their planners what homework they will be completing in advance). 


PE kits will need to be in school for Tuesday PM and Friday AM.


Our Class Motto: Hakuna Matata (It means no worries)
