Welcome  to the start of an exciting adventure in year five. I am so pleased to be teaching Cheetahs this year. It will be amazing! I hope you all had a wonderful summer and are now ready to get started for the year ahead. Please see below for a quick outline of the topics we will be covering this academic year.


Autumn : Were the Anglo Saxons or Vikings better invaders? (History Focus)

Spring: Why are rainforests so important? (Geography Focus)

Summer: Why are people fascinated with space? (Science Focus)


We will aim to have our residential for years 5 and 6 in the summer term. More information to follow.


Please remember that you are more than welcome to get in touch with me via the school office for anything you are unsure about.
