A Message from Mr Coy
Welcome to Topaz class. In Topaz you will have myself (Mr Coy) and Mrs Carrick, here to help you to in all areas of your learning. I have been a class teacher for many years working in KS2 with most of my years having taught in Year 5. It is our aim to help create a love for learning and for you to be able to fulfil your potential. Year 5 is one of my favourite years to teach as it comprises of many of my own passions including History, especially the American Revolution. In Year 5 we will aim to make learning as engaging as possible and this is enhanced by the choice of texts we will read throughout the year.
Learning in Topaz
At St Mary Cray Primary Academy we aim in English through a variety of engaging, interesting texts that allow for children to develop a love of reading. We follow the Maths Mastery scheme in Numeracy and we follow the Core Curriculum when teaching foundation subjects such as History and Geography. We put our pupils at the centre of our curriculum and always start with the child when planning; using the children’s previous knowledge, experiences and interests to motivate, challenge and engage them. 
Outdoor Learning  forms and integral part of our pupils' learning at St Mary Cray Primary Academy.  Children have access to a trim trail, large grassy field, allotment and, via our partner school, a swimming pool and Forest School.
We look forward to a fun and productive year with your child. Our door is always open if you have any concerns. Thank you for your continued support.

Don't forget you can also keep up to date with your child's progress and what's going on via ClassDojo.
