Welcome to Year 5

Autumn Term 2020

Welcome back and we hope you had a fabulous half term break even though the weather was not what we had hoped for.

We are moving on to a geographical focus this half term and our key questions are all about climate change and its effects on the planet. This follows on well from our work on the beautiful Oliver Jeffers book 'Here We Are' which we looked at right at the beginning of the new term.

We know that school may feel daunting after such a long time away due to the first lockdown. However, we are now back into the swing of things and will continue to 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.

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 Ashton.
