Welcome to the Year 5 class page.
Year 5 have been working extremely hard since we have come back after Easter. We will continue to have PE on Monday and Thursday, with children coming to school dressed in their PE kits. Homework will continue to be set on Microsoft Teams. The spellings for this half term will focus on the Year 5-6 spelling list. This will be a random 10 each week.
Thank you so much for logging on to watch the class assembly. The link is now available on Microsoft Teams.
If you have any concerns please let me know via the class email; firstname.lastname@example.org
