Welcome to the Year 5 class page!

My name is Miss Skerratt and I have the great pleasure of teaching Year 5  this year. I am looking forward to an exciting year of learning with the children supported by Mrs Withers (Teaching Assistant). Mrs Williamson will also be teaching in Year 5 on a Thursday morning.

On this page you will find lots of information and pictures of the exciting things that we have been learning in class. It will also be updated regularly with class news and links to websites that you may find helpful to support your child's learning.

The knowledge organisers will give you an idea about what your child will be learning in each subject. This provides a great opportunity to have a discussion with your child about they are learning. 

Should you have any questions, worries or concerns, please come and see me or email me. I look forward to working in partnership with you to help your child achieve the best they can.
