Believe and Achieve

Year 5

“You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think”
– A.A. Milne/Christopher Robin


In Year 5 our teacher is Mrs Marshall and our amazing teaching assistants are Miss Waters and Miss Clemmons. They want every child in the class to achieve their full potential and make good progress! In class 5 we love books and love to read for pleasure. We really enjoy our topic work – we can’t wait to be inspired and produce some fabulous pieces of writing and creative art work.

How your child is learning at home is very important. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to email the School, and we will help you as best we can.
