Years 5 & 6
Welcome to Year 5 and 6 Class Page. Our class teacher is Mrs Wilson and our teaching assistant is Miss Edwards. We know that we are capable of great things. This year we will be combatting alien invasions, mummifying tomatoes, building bridges, programming robots and exploring the mathematical patterns in nature. We will be developing our skills of discussion and debate and exploring themes of diversity and prejudice. In all our work we aim to be resilient to challenge and ensure we are Always Our Best. Our current memory verse is Ephesians 2:8-9. If you want to know what it says, ask us to sing it to you!
