Class 6 (Year 5) - Mrs Carr and Mr Henderson

 Welcome to Class 6,

Hello, my name is Mrs Carr and I am one of the teachers of Class 8 alongside Mr Henderson. We are very lucky to be supported in our classroom by Mrs Day.

After working at St Helen’s Primary School last term, I am thrilled to be back! I am really looking forward to teaching in Year 5 and all the exciting things we will be doing together. Class 6 is very much a team and I know if we all work together we will have a successful, and enjoyable school year. Year 5 can be a challenging year as the children enter upper KS2 but together we will learn so much and all I ask is that you try your best and you’ll succeed.

Supporting your child’s safety and wellbeing will remain our top priority. Should you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, I will always be available to support you so please contact me. Each day I will be available on the playground either before or after school.


A Note for Parents


 Water Bottles

Children can bring a water bottle to school. It should be labelled with your child's name. Children will bring their bottles home daily for cleaning. Please ensure that children only have water in their classroom bottle. (A separate bottle for juice can be sent in if your child has a packed lunch dinner.) 

Reading books

Children will bring their reading books and reading journals home from school each day and they are encouraged to read them each night, ideally an adult is to sign the reading journal daily.

Please ensure all reading books and reading journals are returned to school every day – we will be reading our reading books each day in school too.


Your child will bring home 20 spellings on a Monday. They should practise these spellings each night and they will be tested on 10 of them on a Friday. These spelling sheets should not be returned to school.  


Your child's PE day is a Thursday. Please ensure that your child brings their PE kit in each Thursday and children can take it home with them on the same day for cleaning or alternatively they may leave their kit in school.  PE kit is black shorts, a white t-shirt and appropriate footwear. PE will be taking place both indoors and outdoors, so children are advised to bring a hoodie and joggers or leggings to keep warm outside, as well as trainers or plimsolls.
