Room 5

Welcome to Room 5 for 2019


Welcome to the first term of 2019! I am looking forward to getting to know everyone in the coming weeks. We have a busy term ahead, with Swimming Sports, MANA Reward days and plenty of opportunities to get involved.






Diaries: Student diaries are essential to student organisation and learning here at Devon. Please ensure your child brings theirs every day. There is a space for parents to write notes for school.

Homework: Homework will be handed out on a Monday and due back completed by the following Friday. In Room 5 we stress the importance of being organised so if there is a legitimate reason for homework not to be completed I encourage students to approach me before the deadline or bring in a note if possible. If you believe that your child’s homework is too easy or too hard, please reach out so that we can adjust it accordingly.


Technology: Our Technology days are Tuesday and Thursday. Students will be taking part in Metal Technology and Food Technology for the first two terms.


PE: The focus for the first six weeks is swimming. Please ensure that your child has their swimming togs and a towel every day. We intend to be swimming on a Monday, Thursday and Friday.

Even with Swimming being the primary PE focus, PE gear is needed daily throughout the school year, as we will often take part in other physical activities (particularly on a Friday)

If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone through the school office, or by emailing me at


Looking forward to a fantastic first term!
