Class 5

Year 5 2021-2022

Blwyddyn 5 2021-2022



The Class Teacher is Miss Phillips and the Class LSA is Miss Arnold.


Our topic to start the Autumn Term is 'Who Cares?' and the pupils have decided that they want to use the 'Nurturing NHS' as their focus.  The children have chosen this topic themselves and have planned according to the 6 Areas of Learning and 4 Core Purposes, what they would like to do.  We are hoping to organise a field trip and/or invite visitors into the school to support our learning and further our life experiences.
