Class 5

Miss King

Welcome to Class 5

Welcome! We are year 5 and are enjoying being taught by Miss King.

In year 5, we are excited to be learning about many new subjects; we are very keen and enthusiastic learners. We are learning all about the Ancient Egyptians, Mayans and Tudors this year as our history focus. Art is a strong passion of our class and we love being taught artistic skills by Miss King.

We also love writing and are really focusing upon our writing skills this year as many of us want to become authors when we grow up.

We are a friendly class and welcome anyone into our class – so come along!
