Tanzanite Class - Year 5 and 6

Welcome to Tanzanite Class

Year 5/6!

Tanzanite is a pleochroic gem. Pleochroism is a physical property in which the material appears to be different colours when viewed from different crystallographic directions.


Hello! My name is Mr Bird. I am Class Teacher of Tanzanite Class, a Year 5/6 Class here at Salesbury. I have taught at this school for 21 years and I feel very much a part of this school. I love teaching and feel very fortunate to be given the opportunity to teach at a school like Salesbury.


I enjoy working with the staff to offer the children memorable learning experiences in Year 5 and 6, to prepare them for the future!


We have a number of adults who support our learning:


Mr Bird is the Class Teacher.


Mrs Howell-Jones teaches the children each week on Tuesday afternoon.

Mrs Birtwell, Mrs Cheeseman and Mrs Woodruff work as Teaching Assistants in supporting the children in groups and sometimes individually.


If you would like to contact me, please don't hesitate to call school or email me at
