Welcome to the Year 5 class page.
As part of our Anglo-Saxon unit of work we will be visited by an Anglo-Saxon warrior. As part of this day children will be able to come to school dressed up in their own Anglo-Saxon outfits. We find as a school that the best outfits are homemade outfits. Please use the examples below to help create your outfits. The day will take place on Thursday 5th November. This year the school will be covering the cost of the day.
