A very warm welcome back to the Spring term here in year 5 and hello to all of those parents and carers who I have not yet had the pleasure to meet . I will be taking the class for the remainder of the academic year and am very much looking forward to working with the children in year five . 

From what I already know of the children they are a talented bunch and I am very much looking forward to unlocking their potential during the rest of the year. 

I hope to be able to keep our school community informed with what the children have been up to during the course of them term on our class page . Please pop back regularly to see what the children have been working towards and of course if there are any special events on , the details will always be on the webpage. 


For now , please note the changes to the timetable below. PE will now be held on Friday afternoon and Swim sessions for invited pupils are to be held on Wednesday morning . Please ensure that if your child cannnot take part in their physical activity sessions ,that you inform me in writing or by phoning the office. Unless we are notified, all children will take part in a daily fitness activity.
