Year 5

Mr Oliver, Mr Plant, Mrs Plant and Mrs Sawyers.

Welcome to Year 5!

Hello and welcome to class 5RO!

Summer term is here already and we eagerly look forward to the many activities we are going to take part in. Some of the highlights of the upcoming term are: an educational visit to Rainton Meadows nature reserve to learn more about the life-cycles of both plants and animals, continuing our swimming lessons, a visit to Sunderland Marina to take part in outdoor and adventurous P.E. activities and learning about how life in Britain changed as we moved from the stone-age into the iron-age.
