Hello! I am Miss Parry and I teach children in Year 5 and 6. I joined the school as an NQT six years ago and have thoroughly enjoyed my time within the school. In my free time, I enjoy travelling and exploring new places; not reading the books Mrs Kuffour recommends; spending time with my cat, Theo; and over listening to musical soundtracks. I try to use my interests to inform my teaching so the children might well become Potter fans by the end of the two years.

Hello! My name is Mrs Magee and I am the teaching assistant in Class 4. I have worked closely with Mrs Kuffour working with the children in Year 5 and 6 where every day brings new challenges and lots of fun! I am really lucky, as a HLTA, that I get to cover management time and PPA  throughout the school.  This enables me to work and get to know all the children and see how they develop and progress in their education over the years. 

I have two grown children who used to attend The Meadows which makes me feel very old!

In my spare time I enjoy reading (historical novels), walking (with my two dogs Fagin and Stig) and eating out.  As I enjoy eating out, I also 'love' attending exercise classes such as boxercise.  I have recently purchased a VW camper and have been bitten by the camping and travelling bug too.

We run a two-year rolling curriculum. Odd plans begin in an odd year (2023) and even plans begin in an even year (2024)

Spellings: New spellings are given out every Friday. The children are test on Monday and Friday. The first test (Monday) involves the children simply the spelling the word in a list; the second test (Friday) is where the children should spell the words in a sentence to show understanding.

Reading: Daily reading should be recorded in their diary. Each week, the children should also write in two AF comments. 

Mental Maths: Each week the children are given number facts to recall on a Wednesday, which will then be tested on the following Wednesday. Some facts will be repeated to ensure that children keep their skills 'on the boil'. 

Homework: One Mathematics and Literacy based homework is given out per week, consolidating skills learnt during the week. Alternatively. the children are given projects linked to the topic from time to time. 

In FUN (Fluency, Understanding and Number) in Class 4, our primary focus is to continue to practise the multiplication facts, prime numbers and squared numbers at speed. This is a crucial skill that the children will require in their learning throughout their education. Below you can find a range of video resources we use in class to support their learning at home.
