Welcome to Year 5

In Year 5, all of our classes are named after JK Rowling’s Harry Potter characters. Miss Cardwell’s class is Hedwig (5HW), Mrs Jones’ class is Dobby (5DB) and Mrs Finnis and Mr Elyard’s class is Dumbledore (5DD). We also have Mr Roberts, Mrs Calmic working in our year group to help support our learning.

We have begun the year by looking at the story Flotsam by David Weisner. It has transported us to a magical underwater kingdom and we can’t wait to find out more! We have so many more exciting things to learn about this year from Ancient Egypt to optical illusions! Our blog will become a digital scrap book of our time in school so make sure that you keep checking it.
