YEAR 5 - Cannon and Chatsworth


Hi Year 5! I'm Miss Doyle, your class teacher for Y5. I cannot believe that we are starting our last half term together in Year 5! It was really fun to teach a geography-based topic last half term when we delved into the location of the continent North America. However, this half term we will be looking at a history focus with Mining in our own town of Maltby.

Happy new half term Year 5, from Mr Farmer, your class teacher in Cannon Class. I am over the moon at the amazing work that you have shown me over the last 5 half terms and I cannot believe this is your last half term in Year 5. As always, I look forward to making your learning fun and enjoyable as we delve into our new topic of Mining in Maltby.
