Welcome to 5H's class page

This is the first year that we have had a straight-age Year 5 class. This is because the school is growing in size due to our expansion in 2018. The school will eventually be two-form entry.

Please check our class Twitter pages for regular updates and photographs about what we have been doing in class!

Please use your child’s planner as a means of communication between home and school. We are interested in hearing about any achievements that your child has had, whether this be with their reading or out of school hobby! We want to be able to celebrate every success both in and out of school. If you want to discuss something with us face to face, please do not hesitate to arrange a time to see us.

 

We also use Seesaw as a means of communication and, sometimes, for homework.

Please ensure that you have both the child and parent logins.

 

PE day: Thursday
