Year 5

ST THOMAS MORE

....

Welcome to Year 5

My name is Miss Ho and I am the Year 5 class teacher for this academic year. We are very lucky to have Mrs Eaton as our class teaching assistant!

We fully understand that the children have been out of school for many months and may be reluctant to return. However, we will be here to try and make the transition from year four to year five a smooth and happy one. 

We  are both looking forward to getting to know your child over the course of the year.
