Year 5 - Heron Class
Welcome to Heron Class!
We have twenty eight children in our class and our teachers are Mrs Morris and Mrs Daniels.
Mrs Daniels teaches on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mrs Morris teaches on Thursdays and Fridays. We are looking forward to working together this year to teach your children.
Year Five are also lucky to have Mrs Weddepohl working in the classroom throughout the week supporting the delivery of the curriculum along with Mr Brown and Mrs Hicks.
We look forward to working with you and your families over the coming year and hope that you will find everything you need to know about life in Year 5 in the documents below.
If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact the office and we will respond as soon as possible.

Please see the documents below which will help you support your child and understand what we are learning in class:
‘Full Steam Ahead...’ is our cross curricular theme this term and we will be finding out all about what it was like to be a child in Victorian times and how the lives of children who came to our school when it first opened may differ from our lives today.
Here are some images from our first term in Year 5 which show that times have changed quite a lot since our school first opened it’s doors over 150 years ago.
We would like to thank all of our special visitors who joined us in the Year 5 classroom on the penultimate day of term for a Christmas Celebration. The children enjoyed writing letters to you, receiving replies and then welcoming you into the classroom to make gift bags, decorations, play a whole range of games and very importantly eat cake – Victoria Sponge of course! Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and kind words.
Happy New Year everyone!
The Spring term in Year 5 promises to be equally as action packed. Please refer to our topic web link for more details of the learning we have planned across the curriculum.
Highlights include ‘Viva Roma’ which will see us travel back further in history to explore the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain.
We are, of course, all looking forward to our residential visit to Grafham during the last week of term… more details to follow.
