We welcome all parents and children to Year 5's webpage. Year 5 is an important year in which we hope to see the pupils grow to be much more independent, have more confidence and begin to express their own opinions in a mature manner. 



Individual Remote Learning.

If your child is self-isolating or waiting for test results, there is an indivdual timetable of remote learning in the files below to be completed. You will also find the maths lessons to be completed. Literacy will be completed on Purple Mash Serial and on the timetable there is an additional activity.
