Mrs Gilmour and Mrs Pepper welcome you to Class 5GP. We have enjoyed working at Tyntesfield for many years and are so pleased to be sharing our class again this year. We are passionate about reading, active learning and working together collaboratively.
Mrs Gilmour is a History and Language specialist, whereas Mrs Pepper is our English leader and advocate for reading and writing across the curriculum. Year 5 is a very exciting year as we begin our time in the Upper Juniors and really challenge ourselves to grow as learners.
This year we have some really interesting topics including including Earth and Space, Climate Change, and Early Islamic Civilisations. We also go on an American Road Trip in Geography and even travel to Antarctica in our of our writing topics! We are continuing to develop our outdoor skills in Woody Wanderers, sewing and cooking skills in DT and sculpture skills in Art!
We recognise the importance of fun and laughter in our learning alongside challenge and effort to make sure we are rewarded by being the best we can be.
Pupils very much enjoy coming to school... They feel safe in the stimulating environment into which they are warmly welcomed... One pupil stated that, ‘You can be yourself here.’
