Welcome to Year Five
Miss Norman and Mrs Agis are thrilled to welcome you to Year 5 and are excited for what will be an exciting 2021-2022 school year! This year, we are lucky to be supported by Miss Mitchel and Mr Dunn. In year 5, we work in the upstairs classrooms, in close proximity to the library!
We regularly update our families on what happens in Year 5 via ClassDojo and our school Twitter, @st_michaels_ham. Please speak to your class teacher if you need support in accessing ClassDojo as a parent or for your child. We will be happy to help you get connected.
Please find below our curriculum newsletter and topic webs to see what Year 5 will be getting up to this term! You can also check out our Year 5 activity passport above, to learn about some of the things we experience as part of our rich and varied curriculum.
