Year 5 News

Mr D. Hebb

Hello, welcome to Year 5. My name is Mr Hebb and I am the class teacher. I have taught in Year 6 for most of my career and I now have the pleasure of going into Year 5 to help prepare the children for the end of Key Stage 2. I am a keen writer and love to read outside of school and also enjoy playing and watching football.

Across all of our lessons in Year 5, we will make sure we show pride in all of our work and show courage and curiosity in all that we learn. We like to work with a smile on our face and we know we need to work hard and try our best in everything we do.

I look forward to showing you how we are getting on through the weekly updates on our class blog
