Welcome to Year 5 2020/2021
Hello Year 5! 
We hope you've all had a restful holiday, have stayed well and are ready to come back to school. All of your teachers are incredibly excited to see you. We have made a 'meet the teacher' video, that you can view below, to show you your new classrooms and to explain some of the changes you will notice when you return. You will also be able to find the 'Meet the Teacher' Powerpoint below. If you have any question please do not hesitate to contact us. 
We can't wait to see you! 
Ms Douglas, Ms Harman and Mr Katon
