Hello and a very warm welcome to Class 5 (2023-24). Class 5 will be taught by Mrs Taylor (Monday and Tuesday) and Mr Meadows (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday). Mrs Atkinson will support the children in this class throughout the year. There are currently 31 children class 5.
I’m Mr Meadows and this will be my second year in Y5. I have been a teacher at CJS for many years, and I have taught in all KS2 year groups. I have lots of exciting lessons planned for this year, and I am really looking forward to getting to know my new class. At CJS I am maths lead, so I love teaching this subject, however, I enjoy teaching the other subjects too. My main aims this year are to help Y5 to make lots of happy memories and to prepare them for their step up into Y6.
Hi, I am Mrs Taylor, I am one of the Year 5 teachers. This will be the second year Mr Meadows and I have worked in year 5 as we enjoyed it so much last year. I have been working at Consett Junior School for over 12 years, I was even a student here and I just never left! 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! Hopefully we get to go on another art trip this year!
In English, our work will be based on the following books: The Nowhere Emporium, Holes and The Garbage King. We are excited to introduce the children to these exciting books, and hopefully they will inspire the class and help them to create some amazing pieces of writing.
In Maths, we will be following the White Rose Maths scheme. Our daily lessons will incorporate a variety of fluency, reason and problem-solving questions. In our basic skills sessions we will focus on developing our arithmetic skills and our recall of the times tables up to 12×12.
