Welcome to Year 5!
Yours Class Teachers are Mrs Millar (5M) with Teaching Assistant Mrs Nation, and Miss Attwood and Miss Yarnall (5AY) with Teaching assistant Miss Clinton.
Our Topic for this Half Term is Great British Heroes!
We will be focusing on the novel 'Outlaw' by Michael Morpurgo, which tells the story of Robin Hood. We will also be looking at other famous heroes such as King Arthur and The Highwayman!
PE days are Thursday (indoor, both classes), Friday (outside, 5M) and Tuesday (outside 5AY).
Please ensure long hair is tied back and any earrings are removed on these days. It is helpful if girls wearing tights have a spare pair of socks in their PE bags, and may bring a pair of leggings/joggers.
Please ensure your child has a full, named PE Kit in school, including PE pumps as this will enable them to take part in the curriculum.
Please ensure all uniform is labelled, especially jumpers and cardigans which they may take off during the day.
