A message from Jess
Hi I’m Jess, the teacher in Australia class. I’m a passionate reader, keen artist and budding musician. My wish is that children will become as interested and enthusiastic about learning as I am. I’m very excited to have joined Millennium this year and can’t wait to teach all the exciting topics we have in store in Year 5. So far we have learnt all about our class country and the children have produced some fantastic work looking at the unique wildlife in Australia and the troubled history of the Aboriginal peoples. We’re very lucky to have made contact with a Year 5 class in Australia who we will be exchanging messages with throughout the year.
Moving forward, our history focus topics will look at the Vikings and the Ancient Greeks, our Science focus topic will examine the Human World and Space, plus we’ll be investigating some Maddening Mysteries. And of course, there’s Christmas and our end-of-term spectacular to look forward to.
A message from Tia
Welcome to Year 5 Vietnam class! I am Tia, and I will be working alongside Jess in Year 5 this year. Vietnam class is lucky to have two additional dedicated adults with us, Nicola and Lisa, who support us in the morning and the afternoon respectively. I have been at Millennium for two years now and have loved every moment of being part of this diverse, hardworking and supportive school community. My background is in Literature, so I love reading and writing – I’m especially excited about Millennium’s new whole class reading approach and hope that Year 5 (and indeed everybody across the school!) will be just as passionate about exciting stories as I am! This year, we’ll be immersing ourselves in some wonderfully engaging topics such as the Vicious Vikings, Groovy Greeks and Maddening Mysteries. Each of our topics will have a relevant core text that will supplement the learning across Year 5 and enhance each topic in new and exciting ways. I’m thrilled to be teaching Vietnam class this year and am really looking forward to getting stuck into our creative and comprehensive curriculum. Stay tuned for our newsletters and other information about all the fun and fabulous things Year 5 will be getting up to!
