Welcome to Year 5 – we hope you had a wonderful summer.

This term, we are learning all about The Vikings, which will include creating a huge longboat structure, and making our very own Viking shields!

We look forward to seeing you for a formal meeting at Parents’ Evening in October, but please do arrange a meeting before if there is anything urgent you need to discuss.
