Year 5

Welcome from Miss Martin-Mills!

Hello, I am Miss Martin-Mills and I am the Year 5 teacher. I adore being a teacher and cannot wait for a fun-filled year with Year 5!

I am thoroughly enthusiastic and motivated in creating a learning environment, which is built on trust, independence, respect, a love of learning and most importantly a lot of fun!

Mrs Johnston, Mrs Leedham and Ms Stanesby will also be working with us this year!
