Year 5

Miss Thielmann (Teacher) / Miss Robinson (ARMs)


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.

Year 5 Go Back in Time!

Buddy Training

On Friday, Year 5 received a very special training afternoon delivered by our Year 6 children with the help of Miss Bell and Mrs Waugh. We rely on our buddies at Swalwell to take care of younger children on the yard and pay games with children who might be looking...
