Year 5

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 .

The teachers in Year 5 are Ms Jennings on Monday to Wednesday and Mrs Bowden on Thursday to Friday. We are supported by Mrs Moore Tuesday to Friday.

We love being in year 5 as there is always so much going on. We aim to keep you informed of all the things we are doing but if you would like to know more please contact us.

Welcome to Year 5

We are really excited by our topic this term – Invaders and Settlers.  We are all going to really enjoy learning about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings together.

We will continue to set homework weekly on Google classroom.  This will run alongside the expectation that children will be reading, learning tables and spellings regularly over the course of the week.
