Here you will find lots of important information about what's going on in Year 5.

Children will be given a reading book to take home, please make sure it is back in school on a Monday.


We understand this is a worrying and strange time, please be assured that we will do everything in our power to ensure your child has the education they deserve.

Working hard, having fun and feeling safe is our priority.




Reading is a focus this year.  We will be listening to the children read throughout the week. Our Guided reading sessions will take place every Monday morning.  Please encourage your children to use their Reading Eggspress accounts at home.
