Year 5 - Aldenham

Weekly Update (19.07.19)


With the academic year coming to a close, I just wanted to take a moment to thank Aldenham Class for being such a fantastic class to teach, especially in my first year at MPL. I could not have asked for a more comedic class, providing me with entertainment throughout the year. They have grown both academically and personally and will be superb role models for the rest of the school come September. Over the year, the children in Aldenham have taught me valuable skills to take with me to my new class, such as extreme patience and the ability to shout without taking a breath for over a minute. I have learnt kindness comes in many forms, that every child has a different way of showing respect, and most importantly, that I am not having children for a very, very long time.

I have thoroughly enjoyed watching them learn, grow and come together as a team, especially when disaster strikes and they all feel the need to scream "WHAT A PALAVER" at the top of their lungs (courtesy of our topic on 'The Spy Master). Every child in Aldenham is a credit to their parents as they have shown great resilience and perseverance throughout year 5, as well as an incredible amount of respect to every member of staff that has taught them this year (despite my continuous nagging about respect). 

I am so incredibly proud of what we have achieved over the last year and I look forward to watching them continue to grow and progress in Year 6.

Thank you for such a brilliant year Aldenham. I hope you all have a fantastic summer, and take a well deserved rest.
