Welcome to Year 5!

We all know that things have been difficult for the last two years. Now it’s time to move on., refocus and make everyday count. Year 5 is a chance to be brilliant and really embrace every opportunity we have.

 We will focus on moving our lessons in maths, reading and writing to new depths. We will learn together in a fun and engaging way. Not all learning will take place in the classroom, we will be swimming, visiting a castle, go to a space centre and have lots of other exciting experiences.

 Year 5 team this year includes Mr Waldron, Ms Bentley, Miss Uppal, Miss Grice, Miss Moseley, Miss Thompson and Miss Hipkiss. We will always be here to support and guide you through the journey in year 5 at VPA!
