‘ I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book’ J.K.Rowling

Welcome to the Y5 class webpage. This is an exciting year, where we will go on many adventures together. Our first adventure will be with the Railway Children, as we start to read the book. We will also venture back in time, during our history days, to experience life during the Middle Ages!


On this page you will also find important information about what will be happening in our class, over the course of the year, so it is important to keep checking it. You will also find links on the page to revision webpages; these should be used often to revise the work we cover in class.
