Welcome to Year 5

Teacher: Miss Jones

In our class this year we looking forward to developing as independent and resilient learners who love to be inspired, challenged and ‘wowed’ as we discover even more about ourselves and just what we can achieve.

We begin the year with an action packed trip to Robinwood where we will challenge ourselves and embrace new opportunities to discover the unique gifts and talents we can contribute to our homes, school and the world we live.

We will learn that when we believe in our own abilities and grow deeper in confidence to know that all things are possible because we are children of God!

This page will keep you updated on our exciting learning journey throughout Year Five. If you ever need to speak to me my door is open,

Many thanks,

Miss Jones
