Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

There are two classes in year 5, who are taught by Miss Leech and Mr Powis.

Miss Leech’s P.E is on a Monday.

Mr Powis’ P.E is on a Friday.

Please watch the powerpoint to find out more about Year 5: year-5

We can be contacted via:

Our teaching assistants are Mrs Turner and Mrs Thomas.

We use Class Dojo to let parents know how when their children receive praise for something they have done in school. This could include:

  • Sensible behaviour
  • Excellent effort
  • Kindness
  • Great work

Once you have downloaded the Class Dojo app and inputted the unique code for your child you will receive alerts when your child has earned a ‘dojo’. This can really help reinforce the praise that we are giving at school as well as being a useful reminder when children say they can’t remember what happened at school.

Please note that we are not using all of the features of Class Dojo at Muxton. We will continue to use the year group email addresses for communication with teachers so please do not use the messaging section of Class Dojo as this will not be monitored.

Do let us know if you need any help with setting up Class Dojo on your device. We will be happy to help! Download it for Apple or Android here.
