Year 5

Mr Dunnigan and Mrs Watson

Welcome back to another fantastic year here in St. Aidan’s. We are currently preparing to undertake an action packed initial half-term filled with excitement in Year 5. In the coming weeks we will be paying a visit to Robin Wood and even have a chance to catch up with our Italian counterparts – yes, that’s correct, Italy will be paying us a visit. Please keep your eyes peeled for any new blog posts on our lessons and days at school. Any important information will be displayed on our class ‘whilst you were away…’ display. For any further information please contact a member of staff. We look forward to seeing you at our class assembly in autumn (Monday 25th September).
