Year 5

Meet the Team

5W – Mrs Wellington and Miss Shaw

5O – Mr Owen and Mrs Whitehead

 

Hi, I am Mrs Wellington, I have worked at Mill Hill for 13 Years. I have a passion for English and I have the privilege of leading writing throughout the school. I have two grown up daughters, who attend Newcastle college and Keele University. I also have a naughty Beagle called Billie! I love the sunshine and going abroad whenever I get the chance! Joining me in class is Miss Shaw. She started in January 2021 in Year 3 and absolutely loves it! The children are fantastic and she is so happy to move to Year 5.  She is just got herself on the property ladder and bought her first house. Exciting times. She enjoys eating, loves to shop and spending time with family.

Hi I am Mr Owen, I completed my teacher training at Mill Hill before accepting my first teaching post at another school. I couldn’t stay away for long though and I was back in 2017. In my spare time, I coach American Football for a men’s team based in Widnes. With me is Mrs Whitehead who has worked at the school for 12 years. She has been fortunate enough to work across all three key stages, so has had the benefit of seeing the learning journey of Mill Hill. She has six grown up children and five grandchildren, which keeps me busy most weekends.

 

This year, our PE day is on Monday. Please make sure appropriate PE kit is in school that day. This includes the purple Mill Hill t-shirt. It is important the children take part in the sessions. In Autumn term, we go swimming every Tuesday, so please ensure they have their full kit including a swimming cap.

In school we use Bug Club and monitor reading on a daily basis. We change our reading books every Friday. We also monitor homework on a Thursday, so please ensure children bring these to school on that day. We love to see all the amazing work they do with you at home.

We are so excited for all of the learning opportunities we will get to share with the children this year and we try to make it as fun filled and creative as we possibly can.

 

Our Humanities Topics This year:

Autumn- Anglo Saxons and Vikings

Spring- The Mayans

Summer- World explorers

 

Our Science Topics This Year:

Autumn- Properties and changes in materials/Earth and Space

Spring- Forces/ Living things and their Habitats

Summer- Animals including Humans

"Work hard, dream big and never give up."
