Mrs Beasley

Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to Year 5’s area where you can find out what the children will be learning each term. You will also be able to read about the activities and off site activities they have been involved in.

Year 5 is a busy year at school and is your child’s first year in the upper Key Stage 2 curriculum which lays the foundations of their learning in Year 6. The children are encouraged to become even more independent and responsible for their own learning.

The teaching assistants who support Year 5 are Mrs English and Mrs Stapleton.

I hope children will find their time in Year 5 inspiring and enjoyable

Mrs Beasley
