Year 5

Meet the staff team!


Welcome to Year 5! , Mr Birss, Miss Norman and Mrs Amal are delighted to welcome you to our Year 5 class page. We will update this page regularly throughout the school year to showcase the incredible learning of the children in 5B and 5X. Our classes are supported by the incredible Mrs Alleyne and Miss Harker. All of our staff team in Year 5 work closely together, so feel free to speak to any of us!

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, knowledge organisers 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 below, to learn about some of the things we experience as part of our broad and balanced curriculum.
