Year 5 Europa
Welcome to Europa class!
In here you will find Miss Benefer (Class Teacher) and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Lucraft-Townley, Miss Dace and Mrs Perillo. We are one of the three Year 5 classes, alongside Venus and Jupiter.
My name is Miss Benefer. I enjoy taking my little cairn terrier, Benji, out for long walks around my village. In the evenings, there is nothing I like more than reading books and relaxing while watching a good movie with a cup of tea. Baking is another hobby that I enjoy, so I sometimes spend my weekends baking treats for my family (although my baking is not quite as good as Mrs Lucraft-Townley’s!)
Team Europa is incredibly enthusiastic. We like to have fun while we learn and there is never a dull moment! We treat everyone with respect and support each other so we can all reach our potential.
In Europa, we are readers! We have a fantastic range of core texts, from which we will base our work throughout the year. We encourage each other to read as much as we can by recommending our favourite stories to our classmates.
This year our TLC texts are:
· Gangsta Granny by David Walliams
· Kensuke’s Kingdom by Micheal Morpurgo
· The Sword of Herobrine by Jim Anotsu
· Who let the Gods out by Maz Evans
· Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver
· The Many Worlds of Albie Bright by Christopher Edge
Please try to read at home at least three times a week and record this yourselves in your communication book.
Now we are in the elite club of Upper Key Stage 2, we are focussing our efforts on building on the knowledge and understanding we have gained while in Lower Key Stage 2. Lots of problem solving and reasoning in maths and inference and complex sentence structures in reading and writing.
We are Year 5 and we are ready for the challenge!
