Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

We are excited about working with the new Year 5 and look forward to helping them make terrific progress this year.

The children are fortunate to explore the new Enquiry curriculum, which will be more relevant to them and their lives in Bristol. They are fortunate to have Mrs Phillips as their LSA. She has been in the school for many years and the children already know her very well. We will be starting our first Enquiry will be, “What makes Sea Mills special?”, before we become scientists and examine, “How can scientists help the homeless?”

We believe strongly that children learn better when happy and secure in school therefore please do contact either Mrs Phillips or myself if you feel we can help in any way.



In line with the new school policy we ask that the children bring in their Reading Records every day.
Children should practice their times tables at home, if you need your Rock Stars password please let me know.
