Welcome to the Year 5 class page.

Year 5 at Longton Primary School is a very exciting year for our pupils, with lots of exciting events and very engaging lessons. At Longton, we have high expectations of our children through outstanding behaviour and being ready to learn and embrace school life. Just like all pupils at Longton, our classroom embraces, employs and promotes our core values; to CARE, GROW and SHINE.

The Year 5 classroom promotes inclusivity, togetherness and a positive learning environment. The classroom will allow students to work in a safe and comfortable environment to enable them to access their learning in the most positive way possible.

We want to promote that making mistakes in our classroom is okay and is an opportunity to learn. We celebrate success, determination, teamwork, independence, uniqueness, kindness and positivity. 

In the classroom, we will be doing amazing and inspirational-worthy learning. We understand that learning requires teamwork both in and out of school and should you need to have a chat, please don't hesitate to catch me at the beginning or end of the day or contact the office, and I will get back to you as soon as I can. 

Welcome to the Year Five class page.

Year Five at Longton Primary School is an exciting year for your children as they continue their journey through school. At Longton we have high expectations of all of our children, through outstanding behaviour and by being ready to learn and embrace school life the children will shine and continue to grow.

Our classroom is a positive learning environment where praise and encouragement are used to motivate and support all of the children. In the Meerkat tribe we expect every child to try their best and develops a resillient attitude towards learning where they are willing to have a go and to never give up when the going gets tough.  The nature of the classroom will nurture the self-esteem of the children, equipping them with the confidence to believe in themselves. The classroom environment will offer learning prompts for the children and will also offer the chance for their work to be showcased. Through hard work, resilliance and fun the children will thrive and build on the great progress they have made already in school.

Education is a team game and we value the support you give your children at home. By working as a team and communicating regularly we can ensure that this is a happy and successful year for the children.

Best wishes

Mr Pearson, Mrs Jackson
