Class 5


class5_bannerWelcome to Class 5. We are Year 5 and 6 children and Miss Randall is our teacher.

She is brilliantly supported by Mr Macklin and Mrs Arkwell-Smyth.

In Year 5 and 6 we work hard but make time for plenty of fun along the way…

In upper KS2 we learn to become much more responsible as we have a lot of important jobs to do to support the school. As well as setting up hall for assemblies, we run break and lunchtime fitness activities for the whole school and organise all the fruit, milk and recycling!

Year 6 are also brilliant buddies to our brand new reception children – we help them get the best start to their education and help them every step of the way.

COVID-19 – Beware of false information

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are hearing about some FALSE information circling about our COVID-19 response, which you should be aware of.


1) There are emails arriving with parents which tell them that the school can help with financial difficulties. They just need to give details of their bank. THIS IS NOT TRUE. Please be wary – we never ask for details of your bank accounts.

2) There are individuals offering themselves as “teachers” to help parents by teaching their children whilst not in school. Please be extra wary of this. For any educational needs – please contact the school directly or use the school website/updates via Tapestry for updates from our teachers about the work children can be doing whilst at home.




A message from the Slimbridge staff

To all our parents, carers and wonderful children,

We would just like to extend our thanks to you all for your support during the past week.

School has felt like a very strange place to be – with children, parents and staff members feeling anxious and helpless – but your children have been amazingly resilient and have kept us all smiling.

Many of our brilliant teachers and support staff will still be at school over the coming months, looking after key worker and vulnerable children and we would like to thank them for their amazing commitment and for keeping the children occupied, happy, laughing and above everything else – safe.

We will, of course, be in frequent communication with all our families, but if you need us – please contact the school.

Be kind to one another and stay safe. We’ll see you soon.

From all the Slimbridge Team.
