Venus - Year 5 / 6

Welcome to Venus!

Year 5/6


Hi, I'm Mrs Smallshaw, Class Teacher and Assistant Headteacher, and I have one of the best jobs in the world!  (Well, I believe so).  No two days are ever the same and everyday brings something new!  I believe that if a class is willing to work hard they deserve to have plenty of fun too!  I like our classroom to be a space for practical, co-operative and investigative learning, and children are encouraged to ask lots of questions.  My favourite thing in the whole world is Reading!!!  I also enjoy leading our school Worship Group and Netball Team.  

Mrs Russell, our Teaching Assistant, supports the children with their learning every morning.  She works with groups and individuals in our Guided reading, Maths, Spelling  and English lessons.  She also creates some amazing displays in our class and around school!  

Mrs Murphy also works in our classroom to support children with the learning.  

If you ever have any questions, feel free to contact me:

I Can't do it... YET!  


This is our learning motto and something we regularly discuss in the classroom.  It fits perfectly with our Growth Mindset ethos, as we strive to build and develop our Learning Powers.  We often talk about The Learning Pit and the different emotions we feel when we are in it.  In our lessons, children are encouraged to enter the Learning Pit and demonstrate Resilience.  They also strive to be Resourceful and Reflective, and show Reciprocity.
