Here is the ‘Meet the teacher’ video for Amethyst Class.

Mrs Sharples will work closely with Miss Coates in Sapphire Class, to ensure consistency of teaching and learning across the curriculum for year 5 children when planning and delivering all subjects. Themed days and activities are also planned across the classes allowing year 5 children to join with their peers from Sapphire Class regularly.

PE and Forest School

PE lessons will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child has a PE kit in school every day. Our class forest school session will be on a Monday afternoon – please have a suitable change of footwear and waterproof clothing in school.


Children will be set homework every Friday which will be due in the following week. This will be English, Maths and Spelling. Children will be expected to read on a regular basis (at least 3 times a week).

If  you have any worries or concerns about your child, please contact Mrs Sharples either via the school office or by email:

We hope your child has a really happy and successful year in Amethyst class – we aim to work hard but still enjoy being together as a class.
