About Year 5

Mrs Ijima, Miss Gregory, Miss Lofthouse and Mrs Wheeler enjoy the support of Miss Campbell, Mr Canon, Mr Humphreys, Mrs Holmes and Mrs O’Neill in Year 5.

Year 5 has some very interesting topics like the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings or Earth and Space so it’s fun to teach. We enjoy some great trips, for example Tatton Park and the Museum of Science and Industry. We also have some wonderful school visitors, like the mobile Planetarium.
