Welcome to the home of Year 5, where we focus on developing positivity – there is something good to be found in every day and resilience – our ability to bounce back.
Our teachers are Mrs Duckworth and Miss Wilson (Class 11) and Miss Frost (Class 12) and we are lucky enough to have the help and support of three fabulous learning support assistants – Mrs Butchard, Mrs Harris and Mrs Davies.
Check out our page for weekly updates, links and homework as this will be our main communication with you all.

If you’re interested in seeing what your child will learn in Year 5 this year have a little look at our long term plan!
Remote Learning due to COVID
If your child is absent due to self-isolating they will be sent work to complete on Seesaw. This work will mirror the work being completed in class during the week. Please ask your child to post any completed work on Seesaw, thank you.
We have lots of fun in Year 5, we hope you enjoy looking at our photos:
