Class 5

Welcome to our Class 5 Page!

I hope that you have all had a lovely summer break and you are all ready to come back to school full of energy and ready to learn. I know that so many of you have worked incredibly hard at home and I can’t wait to see you working hard in the classroom. Year 5 is a very important year in school so I know that you will always try your best and work hard. We have plenty of exciting learning opportunities coming up this year.

Meet your Teachers

Hello! My name is Mrs Benton and I am your Class Teacher.

This year, I have moved out of Year 6 and I am very much looking forward to coming back to Year 5! I am starting my fifth year here at Ashwood and I am very excited to be your new teacher. In school, I lead reading and writing and these are definitely some of my favourite subjects.

When I’m not in school, I love to travel to new places and see my friends, spend time with my family and read lots on my Kindle.

Miss Benton

Hello! My name is Miss Hinchliffe and I am your Teaching Assistant.

I have been a Teaching Assistant for 13 years now and a Year 6 TA for three! During my time at Rawmarsh Ashwood Primary School, I have provided support and intervention for all year groups – helping others to learn and grow. When I am not teaching, I enjoy walking my dog Blue, reading and spending time at home with my family.

Class Information

It is absolutely key that you attend school every day if you can. If you do not attend school, you miss out on key learning and time to spend with your friends.

Homework will be set on a Thursday in Y5 and will need to be returned by the following Tuesday.

Our school is proud to call ourselves ‘a reading schoool’ and we want our children to share the same passion about books that we do. For this reason, it is vital that children continue to have the opportunity to share books at home.
