Year 5

Miss Bell (Teacher) / Miss Watkins

Welcome

Welcome to Year 5! This year is an exciting year, packed full of memorable opportunities and the chance for the children to take on important responsibilities in their first year of upper key stage 2. 

 This year the children will continue to develop as independent learners while reaching their full academic potential in preparation for their transition to Year 6. 

 In Year 5 we work hard, respect each other and engage in and enjoy our learning. The year ahead is packed full of exciting challenges.

Music – Creating mood using sound effects

Living Eggs – Day 9
