Welcome to Year 5!
Welcome back! Hopefully you've had a lovely holiday and are feeling refreshed and raring to go... This Autumn we have got lots of interesting and exciting learning planned such as looking at geographical regions in Project and exploring space in Science. Did you know that if you could fly a plane to Pluto, the trip would take you more that 800 years? English sessions will focus on another fantastic Power of Reading book, Varmints, and there will be plenty of investigations to get your teeth into in Maths. We hope you're looking forward to school year ahead as much as we are...
If you have a question please do not hesitate to contact the class teacher, and thanks for your continued support.
