Year 5 - Kingfisher

Welcome Kingfishers!


Starting our Journey Together


I would just like to say how excited I am to welcome each and every one of you to our Kingfisher family, where no dream is too big and no goal too unrealistic! As part of the Kingfisher family, you will be encouraged to grow in confidence, resilience and happiness!


You have all shown me what amazing characters you are during our transition days and I cannot wait to spend the next year teaching you, learning with you and having fun together!


On this class page, you will find all of the important information for our class, including: spellings, topic information, revision information, our weekly homework tasks and what we have been up to in the classroom.


Please contact me on the email below if you wish to (both parents and children). I love to see what you have been getting up to!
