Year 5 (Mr Lowry)

Welcome to our Year 6 class!

Hello! Welcome to Mr Lowry’s class. I hope you are ready for a fun and busy Spring Term! We can’t wait to get going!

Meet your Teachers

Hi! I’m Mr Lowry and I will be your new Year 5 and 6 teacher.

In my free time, I love to go and watch my favourite football team, Rotherham United, play all over the country. I also like to exercise and spend time with my friends and family. I have a degree in Linguistics and I’d love to learn a new language one day, although I do speak a little bit of German!

Year 5 Teacher

Hi, my name is Mrs Whelan and I have 6 children – 4 girls and 2 boys. I am utterly obsessed with flamingos and anything that glitters or sparkles! I love reading and baking. My favourite food is Italian. I enjoy watching the Chase and every now and again I manage to beat the Chaser!

I have a daughter who is 9 years old and in my free time, I like reading, shopping, going to the cinema and at the weekends taking my dog on walks. I am looking forward to working with you in September.

Our New Learning

During the summer term we will be covering the topic ‘Post War Britain’ where we will be focusing on the decades following World War 2 up to present day. Within this topic we will be covering some major historical events that have shaped the way we live in Britain today. Some of these major events include: the establishment of the NHS; Windrush generation; World cup winners, Minor’s strike and the steel industry within the local area.

We can’t wait to get stuck into Britain’s recent history and see how our great nation recovered and re-established itself after the war.
