Class 5

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, especially the Tudors! 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!
