Welcome to Year 5
Welcome back! After a long time away from school for many of you, we are more than excited to see you all again. Some of you may be feeling anxious but rest assured that the first few days will be centred around settling back in to our routines and timetables. There will be some changes but these will be shared and explained to ensure that we are all comfortable with the new procedures.
Much of our learning for the first two weeks of term will be focused on a book produced by UNICEF, "For Every Child" which focusses on the rights of the child in words and pictures. From this, pupils from across the whole school will produce artwork and written pieces inspired by the book with the aim of transforming our displays and celebrating the children's collaborative efforts.
In time we will add updates and celebratory showcases of the work we are producing in class, so come back and visit us again for the latest information.
Best wishes from the Year 5 team,
Mrs Thomas, Mrs Wood and Mr Rock.
