Year 5

Mrs McClean, Mrs Oliver, Mrs McGrath and Mrs Robinson

Welcome to Year 5

A huge half term for both year 5 classes. Spring 2nd half means we’ll be visiting our second home….Whithaugh Park and using Andy Goldsworthy for artistic, sculptural inspiration. Back at school we will explore evolution, inheritance and Michael Morpurgo’s ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’. Mrs McClean and Mrs Robinson can still be found in Year 5a while Mrs Oliver and Mrs McGrath can be found in Year 5b.
