Cedar Class (Year 5)

Welcome to Cedar Class!


My name is Mrs Bieda and I am so pleased to be teaching you in Cedar class this year. I am very lucky to be supported by two amazing teaching assistants, Miss McVeigh (am) and Mrs King (pm).


You will be faced with many new challenges in Year 5 but if you remember to approach them with a positive attitude and are always prepared to ‘have a go’, you will find yourself enjoying your learning in a caring and supportive environment. I am looking forward to teaching you all of the exciting topics we will be covering this year, beginning with our history topic - Anglo Saxons and Scots and our science topic - Living Things and their Habitats in term one.


Key things to remember:


  • A full PE kit needs to be in school every day. 
  • Children are expected to read daily and record this in the back of their learning destination book.
  • Maths homework will be set every Monday and will be linked to what the children have been learning in class. Spellings and Literacy homework will also be set on a Monday; all homework should be completed by Friday.
  • The learning destination book can also be used for any additional home learning that your child wishes to do.
