5/6C Miss Green

Welcome to 5/6 C (Miss Green)

A warm welcome to 5/6C's web page. What a wonderful class they are!

On this page you will see everything that we have been studying this year. 

The 'Home learning' page is where I will communicate with you and keep you up to date with any fun home learning ideas. On that page you will find work which will be set for the children to do while they are off. This page is located at the bottom of the blue 'Children' tab. It has been split into year groups to make it easier and more efficient to set work.
