Welcome to Year Five

Welcome to the Year 5 class page. As ever, we have a busy term planned. We will be reading two great novels: Cosmic and The Boy at the Back of the Classroom, which will provide a focus for much of our English work.   

We really appreciate your ongoing support and if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.
