Year 5

smiley Welcome to Year 5 smiley

The Year 5 team consists of Mrs Reeve (Mon-Thurs), Miss Kettle (Fri), Mrs McHutchison, Mr Scully and 30 enthusiastic, lively children who are ready and raring to continue their learning journey through Year 5. Each week we will share elements of our learning on this page through photos and written content so please continue to view this page to get regular updates. We are working hard to achieve our 'Celebrating Me' targets displayed in the classroom and we continue to use the 'Learning Zones' and the 'Well-being Scale' to help us articulate how we are feeling and to recognise how our emotions and behaviour impact our learning.

We are looking forward to an exciting year of working together.
