Year 5 2022 - 2023
Welcome to Year Five!
This is my 23rd year in teaching, and my third year at Buglawton Primary School! I live in Sandbach with my husband, 8-year-old daughter and our 13-year-old Springer Spaniel called Henry. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and going on holiday whenever I can.
Our teaching team this year is myself (Mrs. Chapman) and Mrs. Banks (Teaching Assistant), Mrs Thomas (Teaching Assistant) and Miss Sheard (Teaching Assistant)
Absence from School:
IMPORTANT - If you are off school due to illness or isolation, then our school learning will be available on Google Classroom. However, we have noticed that a few parents are not part of this system, so will be unable to access the work at the moment.
