Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


Hi Year 5 2020-2021,


Welcome back to school; we're  so excited to see you all!

This year Mrs Fitzgerald, Mr Fellows and Mrs Shaw will be the staff leading our exciting learning journey (with a little help from Chewbacca and Steve, the unicorn.) We'll be posting examples on this page of all of your amazing work and we'll also be adding some special links and treats to interesting things... watch this space!


Just a reminder for P.E:

Class 11- Thursday

Class 12-Tuesday

Children can leave their P.E kits in school between lessons.


If there's anything at all we can do to help, just pop and see us. Thank you so much for all of your support so far this year!

Mr F, Mrs F and Mrs S 



18.9.20 Digital safety

As part of our digital safety topic, we identified what we like to do with technology and ensured that we all knew who we could ask to help us in the event that we came across something uncomfortable online.

One School, One Book- The Tin Forest

This week, all across the school, we have been exploring the Tin Forest. This is the tale of a man who dreams to make his environment better. He follows his dream and turns trash into treasure. As creatures move in to this new metallic habitat, the Tin Forest comes to life!

****    END OF YEAR    ****


As we approach the end of the year, we can take time over the next few days to reflect and remember our time together at the start of the year. Usually at this time, we would be saying goodbye and wishing you all the best of luck for next year. We will still be able to do this, just in a slightly different way this year! 


Due to being unable to post end of year gifts out with reports because of sizes, they will be available to collect from the office from Thursday. If they are uncollected, then they will be available when we return in September.


We hope you have a lovely Summer holiday and we can't wait to see you around school in September!


:) Miss Jones and Miss Dukes
