Welcome to Peacocks Class!

Thanks for popping by to have a look at what we've been getting up to in Peacocks! We're the penultimate class at Pierrepont Gamston Primary School, and we're made up solely of year 5 pupils. Our class teacher is Mr Howes and over the course of the year he will be supported by a number of staff:

  • Miss Bratton (our T.A.);
  • Mrs Price (who covers some of Mr Howes' PPA and SLT time);
  • Mrs Webster (our Spanish teacher); and
  • Mr Moseley (a member of staff from First Grade Sport who also covers some of Mr Howes' PPA and SLT time).


Some of the children also have other teachers (for example depending on spelling group) and we'll be having an important visitor arriving in a few weeks - watch this space!


This term, we'll be building on our maths work regarding the 4 operations, fractions and some shape and space work to solve lots of worded problems, percentage calculations and expand our knowledge of geometry. In English we'll be looking at poetry as well as linking with our History work on ancient civilisations. In science we're learning about how the life cycles of animals and humans and in computing we're learning how to use excel. In PE we're doing athletics.


I try to be on the playground before and after school, but if you ever need to get a message to me, ClassDojo, or the school office are also open beyond normal working hours!


New on the website for this term is a folder with all of the weekly homework letters I sent out (including websites of the week, family talking points and my dreadful jokes)! Watch this space for a forthcoming school trip...!


Happy surfing!

In Peacock's class this week, we've been doing some work based on Alfred Noyes' poem, "The Highwayman". In his spare time, Elliot produced this amazing stop-motion movie of the poem - well done Elliot!
