Year 5/6M

Welcome to Year 5/6M

The finest students in all the land!


We love a challenge and will be solving many through the course of the year. We are going to strive to be the best musicians, mathematicians, artists and everything in between as we strive to explore and improve our skills across the curriculum.  Our studies will take us back to the age of the Ancient Egyptians and to the myths of the Ancient Greeks and even to the bottom of a molten volcano! We are looking forward to the Year 5/6 journey, growing individually and together as a class. 


We will be posting regularly with updates from Year 5/6 life so keep an eye out!
