Welcome to Year Five!
Class Teacher: Miss Webster
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Pierce
The Y5 pupils are aged 9/ 10 and have a great responsibility in our school. One of the biggest and most important responsibility is being a buddy to our youngest pupils in the school. The job of a good buddy is to help a child to grow up, develop as a person and be there should they be needed.
Y5 Pupils have lots of fun learning experiences out of the classroom including a historical trip to Llandudno in September.
It is an important year for our pupils as they are developing the skills they need for High School and beyond. It is also important to choose to be POSITIVE in Year 5. Throughout the year we will be ensuring we are brilliant and avoiding being mood hoovers!
Welcome to our classroom
We have lots of working walls to help us with our learning. We also really enjoy displaying our own work to show our friends.

Lets be Pigs of Happiness!
Every week we work together on our tables to earn buttons for our piggy banks. We get these buttons for making the right choices and following the value of the week.
At the end of the week the table with the most buttons can go in Miss Webster's Prize bag!
