Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

 

This is an important year and we will be working hard to ensure that your child has a happy and productive year which gets them suitably ready for Year 6. There are some fascinating topics and exciting trips to be enjoyed as well.

Times tables and reading should occur on a daily basis to support your child.

 

Parental Involvement

We welcome the support of parents both at home and in school. Helping your child with homework, reading and times tables will increase their confidence in school and help consolidate what they have learnt. We would love for you to join us in school at our special events.
