Year 5

Class Teacher: Miss Robson

Welcome to the first year of Upper Key Stage 2.

I am happy to be teaching in Year 5 this year where I have spent the majority of my teaching career. I am joined in Year 5 by Miss Urwin for 3 mornings a week who will help the children to develop their English and Maths knowledge.

We are both passionate about every child reaching their full potential as well as preparing them for Year 6 and their education beyond Clover Hill.

Year 5 is jam-packed with lots of fantastic learning opportunities throughout: team building on our residential, robots and bread making to name only 3!

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to catch me on yard or by phone. My door is always open!
