We would like to welcome your son or daughter into Year 5. We hope that they will enjoy the year, work hard to develop their knowledge and skills, and grow as individuals. The highlights of Year 5 include being a buddy to one of our Reception children, training as a Play Leader, designing and making working musical instruments, discovering what happens in the digestive system, baking cheese scones and bread and swimming at Lancaster University.
Use the drop-down menu on the left-hand side to find our class blog. It contains lots of information about what has been happening in Year 5.
In each of the sections below, you will find information about what we are learning each term. Please note that updates will be added as each new term begins. We have left last year's information on at the moment to give you a flavour of what might be ahead!
