Year 5&6

 smiley   Welcome to Year 5&6

Mrs Preece is the lead teacher in Year 5&6 and is supported by Mrs Tunnard. In Year 5&6, we enjoy growing our knowledge and applying it in lots of interesting and fun ways to help make us remember.  In Year 5&6 the children make the most of every opportunity available to them: representing our school teams, Piercy, Brook, Daffen and Ebsworth as Team Captains; leading training and supporting other children in a variety of school initiatives, e.g. Take 5 Breathing Ambassadors.  The pupils have very important daily jobs to do:  taking snack orders, ringing the bell and organising prayers and music for collective worship.
