Welcome to Class 11’s web page. Here you can find lots of information about the fun we will be having and the things we will be learning this term, Mrs Bird and Miss Hickey.
If you need to speak to Mrs Bird or Miss Hickey please see them at the Year 5 door at the beginning or end of the day or call the school office to arrange a meeting.

In our Come and See lessons this term we will be exploring our Mission.
We will be thinking about all of the things that we find important and how we live our lives to achieve our personal missions.

We have illustrated our school mission statement to show what it means to us.
How we live the mission statement in our class
We gather together to say our daily prayers, listen to scripture, sing hymns and share stories that we know from the Bible. We help and support each other always.
Valued and Recognised for our Unique Contributions
We receive the Gold Award and praise from our teachers and peers for our achievements. We compliment each other and celebrate our achievements.
Child Centered Education
We decide what we would like to learn about at the start of each of our topics by sharing what we know, think and wonder. We are given the freedom to take risks in our learning and to try new things.
Positive Learning Environment
We have bright welcoming classrooms where we can learn, share, laugh and be ourselves.
Gospel Value of Love and Respect
We follow the rules set out to us and set good examples to other children around the school. We follow in Jesus’ light and let him guide us to make good choices.
Partnership with Parents, Carers, Governors, the Parish and Wider Community
We invite everyone from our school community to join in celebrations with us. We give up time to volunteer and help local charities.
In our Topic lessons this term we will be learning all about our local history.
“I am looking forward to finding out about how people lived in Kirkby many years ago”
“I would like to find out when our school was built and what was here before it”
In our Science lessons this term we are learning all about properties and changes of materials.
“I am looking forward to learning about how things can change”
“I want to learn about how to change things back and if some things can not be changed back to the way they were before”
As part of the Computing curriculum in Year 5 we will be blogging.

Our Digital Leaders are Scarlett T and Paddy D.
In our Art lessons this term we will be studying the work of David Hockney and creating our own work in his style; drawing landscapes in a bright and bold way. We are looking forward to sharing our work in an exhibition at the end of this term.
In year 5 we enjoy reading lots of books by lots of different authors. This term we are reading The Hundred Mile an Hour Dog. We are looking forward to enjoying lots of stories by different authors and using their work as inspiration to write our own fabulous writing.
Our Reading Champions this year are Tia W and Sam Mac.
In Class 11 we are lucky to have two large library areas filled with lots of books that we can share and enjoy. We have library monitors who look after the libraries and keep track of all of the books. We can sign books out of our class library and take them home to share with family and enjoy in their own time.
Our computing area
We have a computer in our classroom which we can use in lesson times and in golden times to do research to help us with our work and to complete different tasks. We have written our own e-safety rules which we have promised to stick by to stay safe when using computers and the internet both in class and at home.

Packed Lunches, Healthy Snacks and our School Tuck Shop
At SMAAA we are a healthy school and encourage all children to eat healthy snacks and lunches.
Packed lunches brought into school should consist of healthy food and snacks and should not include chocolate or fizzy drinks.
Children may also bring in a healthy snack to enjoy at break time such as fruit, cheese or toast. Alternatively children can bring in some money to buy a snack from our tuck shop. The Junior tuck shop is run by the Year 6 children and Mr Lewis. They sell a variety of snacks including cheese, fruit and water. The money raised by the Tuck Shop is used to provide awards throughout the year.
Our Healthy Heroes this year are Ellis H and Alfie G.
