Year 5- Back to School!

Week Beginning 5th September 2017

During this week the children have been thinking about how they can be a successful learner, taking responsibility for their learning in Year 5.

They have also considered the importance of working well with others; putting their ideas into action during a Marshmallow Challenge and Cup Challenge!

We have had a great week back and I am very much looking forward to the year ahead!

Throughout each week, I will be posting photographs of the children on Twitter. Please take a look and see what we have been up to!

If you have any questions, please call in for a chat.

Thank You

Miss Steel
