Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Our Year 5 team leader and the class teacher in 5B is Miss Betts. Mrs Hellmuth is the class teacher in 5H. Mrs Fox (Thurs,Fri) and Mrs Boyle (Mon, Tues, Wed)  are the teachers in 5F

English and Maths are taught in four ability sets in every year group. The three classes in each year group are divided into four Maths groups and four English groups. Mrs Robertson is the fourth teacher for Maths and English groups daily in Year 5. Since October half term Mrs Robertson is on maternity leave. Between now and Christmas, Mrs Robertson’s groups for English and maths will be taken by two long term supply teachers – Miss Jagannath Monday to Wednesday and Mr Peterson Thursday and Friday. From January 2016 a new teacher, Miss Lara Wightman, will be joining Courthouse as the teacher of these groups.
