Year 5 2018-19

Welcome to Year 5!

Miss Ridge, Mrs Evans & Mrs Routledge


Welcome back, we hope you had an enjoyable and restful break. 

This half term our topic will be Incredible Egyptians , where our main focus will be history. 

Just a reminder that  the 3rd and 4th July is our London residential. Details for the children who are not attending the trip will be given nearer the time. 


Can we also please ask that both indoor and outdoor PE kits (including trainers) are in school ALL week not just on PE days. This will ensure that children don't miss out should the timetable change or there are any additional PE activities taking place. Thank you smiley

We had to work together to create our own routine in 20 minutes. It was VERY tricky trying to work together in such big groups, but we persevered and were very pleased with the result.
