Welcome to Class 5 (2022/23). The Class will be taught by Mrs Taylor (Monday and Tuesday) and Mr Meadows (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday). Class 5 is supported by Miss Oselton and Mrs Wearmouth. There are 23 pupils in this class.
My name is Mr Meadows, and I have taught at Consett Junior School for many, many years. Adam and Eve were in one of my first classes at CJS. Infact my first class-pet was a diplodocus. I have taught in all KS2 year groups, and I am looking forward to moving into Year 5. I am excited about the challenge of delivering a new curriculum. Being maths lead I love teaching numeracy in particular, however, I enjoy many other curriculum subjects too, but luckily for Class 5 Mrs Taylor teaches our music lessons. My singing has been compared to someone scratching their fingernails down a chalk board.
I am Mrs Taylor, I am one of the Year 5 teachers. This year Mr Meadows and I have moved up with our year 4 class to year 5, and we are both very much looking forward to it. I have been working at Consett Junior School for over 12 years. I am the Art subject lead and I love anything creative! I plan to do lots of lovely Art activities this year both in and outdoors!
About Class 5
Mrs Taylor and I already know the children in Class 5 extremely well, because we taught them in Year 4. When the opportunity arose for us to move up into Year 5 with our existing class, we both jumped at the chance. We are looking forward to helping the children to build on the great progress they all made in Year 4. We are keen to help support the children as they face the challenges of Year 5, and we look forward to helping the children make some amazing memories.
This term in English we are going to be reading The Nowhere Emporium, I am sure we will create some lovely imaginative pieces of work based on this amazing book. Our grammar and spelling lessons are on Monday morning, all of the spelling lists are placed in reading
In this subject we will be following the White Rose Maths scheme. Our topics in the autumn term are place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, and fractions. In Year 5 we are excited to be trialling the White Rose Maths workbooks.
