Welcome toNorthside Primary School

Year 5: University of Bristol

Wishing you a very happy Easter year 5! 


Thank you for all of your lovely emails, photos of home learning and videos of April Fools jokes. You are all truly amazing! We can see just how hard you have been working and how much effort you have you put into your learning during the last 2 weeks. 

We wish you a healthy and happy Easter with your family. Remember to stay safe by staying inside and looking after each other. Do something creative, help out your family, play a game, watch your favourite film, sing a song, draw, paint, sew, make an easter egg hunt, work out to Joe Wicks and dance like you've never danced before! 


Remember that if you are worried about anything, we are here for you. You can always email us:


Take care and stay safe.
