Year 5

A warm welcome to Year 5.

Year 5 is made up of two classes taught by Miss Hawcroft and Mrs Marklew and Mrs McCurdy. Both classes are also supported by Mrs Norton.


Mrs Marklew - I am entering into my 9th year of teaching; the last 3 years of which have been spent at Travis St Lawrence. I have taught in a range of years from year 2 all the way up to year 6, but I have to admit year 5 is my favourite year group. There is so much to learn, do and have fun with especially with the new and exciting topics we have planned this year. If you were to ask my previous classes, I think they would describe me as ‘firm, but fair’ along with also being ‘a little bit crazy!’ I am looking forward to an exciting year of getting to know our new class and watching you all grow and learn over the year!

Miss Hawcroft - I have been teaching for over 10 years and have enjoyed teaching at Travis St Lawrence Primary School for the last three years. I am a hard-working teacher who is kind and caring. Next year, I am looking forward to continuing and building on my time in Year 5. Outside of school, I am a Ranger leader (part of Girlguiding UK for 14-19 year olds). I run fortnightly meetings and activities and we regularly go away on trips in the school holidays: in the UK and Europe. I also enjoy arts and crafts, baking and reading. I love spending time with my family and taking my young niece and nephew to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
