Year 5

Hello and welcome to the Year 5 team.

We are looking forward to a fun-filled year with your children as they rise to the extra challenges of upper key stage two; further independence, teamwork, positions of responsibility and representing the school in the wider community.

Following parents evening a number of parents were asking about Apps, Websites and ideas to work with your children on their maths. This booklet has been produced by the Cambridgeshire maths team highlighting some of the best sites etc. available. Please have a look by clicking on the image below.
