Welcome to Year 5 Classes

Potter and Tolkien



Welcome to Year 5 Classes:

  • Potter with Mr Cliffe and Mrs Waddington
  • Tolkien with Miss Wignall and Mrs Turner


At the start of the year, Year 5 children get to grips with Vikings and we explore the different ways they travelled, lived, fought and told stories. We visit York to get first-hand experience of this and even test our Viking longships on a boating lake later in the term. 


We work hard to build on the school values through our '5 R's' - please ask one of our class members what they are and how we demonstrate them from day to day. We develop these in year 5 in order to prepare them for Year 6 and further education, as well as supporting them to become well rounded members of society. 


Before Christmas, Year 5 will be carolling for members of our local community and members of our school.
