Welcome to Year 5


Mrs Whiteside & Mrs Button 


Autumn Term 2020

We are so delighted to have everyone back in school looking so well and happy. We had a fun filled couple of days in Class Five. We said Goodbye to last year's Class Five's and welcomed this year's new children during our 'hop up' session.  It has been wonderful to be back together. We all enjoyed seeing our friends, sharing news and reconnecting as a class.

We were absolutely thrilled to meet you all during our 'Hop-up' hour and we are looking forward to beginning our journey with you. We have many exciting new things to learn and discover and are so excited to get started!

We know the beginning of a new school year may feel daunting after such a long time away from school but we will do everything we can to make sure your time in Class 5 is enjoyable and fun and that you will grow in confidence as well as gaining new knowledge and skills along the way.

For our first unit of study, we will look at the beautiful Oliver Jeffers book entitled 'Here We Are.' We will explore planet Earth, our solar system and the world around us amongst other things. This book will be studied throughout the school and will provide lots of opportunities for everyone to reflect on recent experiences and how they have made us feel. 

Please check the class page regularly for updates and photographs of what we have been getting up to in class. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask at the school door or email the class address at:

Mrs Whiteside and Mrs Button.
