WELCOME TO YEAR 5
In Year 5 we uphold our Christian and British values, seek to find wisdom and wonder in every day, and REACH our potential through our school values:
"I have come that they may have life and have it to the full" John 10:10
In Year 5, we are supported by:
Miss O'Connor (Class Teacher)
Miss Hall (Teaching Assistant)
Our PE days are on a Tuesday and Friday - children should come into school in their PE kit on those days.
In the Summer Term, there will be six weeks of swimming. On those days, children will have full PE kit on, on a Tuesday only. Swimming will be on a Tuesday morning and there will be a PE lesson on a Tuesday afternoon. During these six weeks, there will be no PE on a Friday.
Full PE kit information can be found on the website under: school information>uniform>PE kit.
