Kingfisher Class Y5

                                      Welcome to Kingfisher Class!

We have lots to look forward this term as we delve into studying space. This will link across other subjects such as English and art. We will also be learning lots of exciting new things in maths, R.E. and computing. Swimming lessons will be taking place on a Thursday.
