Welcome to Year 5!

Mrs Kirby and Mrs Pudney are here to help you learn this year.

 

Remember that homework is set on a Thursday and due in on a Tuesday ( or before!)

As part of science week, we experimented with a " rocket" powered by warm water, white vinegar and bicarbonate of soda ... we needed to refine our plan after the first attempt!
