Welcome to the year 5 class page

Year 5 is an extremely enjoyable, exciting and busy year. Your child will take part in many exciting learning opportunities including learning about Vikings and Anglo Saxons and Ancient and Modern Greece. In Year 5, we work hard to create a positive and stimulating environment where everyone feels safe and pupils can reach their full potential. Within our year 5 page, you will find various information which will support your child during their time in Year 5. If you have any questions, feel free to talk to me at the end of the school day.
