Class 5

Welcome to our Class 5 page.

In Class 5 we love learning!   


Our school Golden Values are so important to us and we think about these each day to help us to always try our best and learn happily together.



Reading is such an important part of Class 5 life.  At the end of the day, we love the time together when we can drift into our imaginations and read our whole class text.  To begin the year we will be bravely meeting dragons through our class story
