Class 10: Miss Novak

Children in this class are aged between 9 and 10.

Teacher: Miss Novak

Teaching Assistant: Miss Jacques

Hello and welcome to Class 10; my name is Miss Novak. I have been teaching in Key Stage Two for 10 years and I am happy to be teaching in Year 5 for another year. I am really excited about the opportunity to get to know the children and to have a happy and productive school year! Miss Jacques will be the teaching assistant next year; she will be teaching PE and will work in the class with children in different lessons. Together we will do the best possible job we can to make sure that your children are achieving the most they can throughout the year.



After bringing the Stargazers Topic to a close we are now moving back in time to study the ancient Egyptians in our ‘Pharaohs’ topic. Our exciting visit to the Manchester Museum began our research in to this fascinating period.  We will be learning about the historic beliefs of the people of ancient Egypt, the geography of the country and using this knowledge as inspiration for artwork and designs.

Reading books: 

Please listen to your child read and make a note every day.   All children need to bring their reading book to school with their child’s reading record. These reading records will be checked regularly and there is an expectation that children note at least three comments a week.
