Year 5


Welcome to the Year 5 class page where we will share the exciting learning happening in our classroom. 


Each term we will be basing our learning on different exciting projects. 

Autumn 1 - Stargazers

Autumn 2 - A Child's War

Spring 1 - Hola Mexico

Spring 2 - Blood Heart

Summer 1 - Peasants, Princes and Pestilence

Summer 2 - Beast Creator/Allotment

We have lots of brilliant things planned for each project so keep popping back to see what we have been up to! 


Our class will have PE on Mondays with Mr Shaw from JB Sports. Please make sure your child has appropriate PE kit in school every Monday and that it stays in school for the whole week; we may sometimes do additional PE activities later on in the week so always need access to our kit.


We will have a spelling lesson on Tuesday afternoons when the children will be tested on the previous week's spellings and be set new spellings. Please help your child to learn these at home. 


As always, reading is hugely important and we encourage all children to read and enjoy reading independently. Please read with your children at home and where possible help to introduce them to texts that you think will pique their interest.


We are incredibly lucky to have staff in our room with lots of expertise. Mrs Hanson and Mrs Loake will be our TAs and Mr Roberts will be teaching the class on Wednesday afternoons. 


If you have any questions or queries, please feel free to pop in to see me or send me an email via the contact form below.

Year 5 had an AMAZING day celebrating Roald Dahl Day. We have entered a national competition to create a new character to help Matilda work against Miss Trunchbull, taken part in a BBC Teach interactive lesson presented by Ben Shires from CBBC, done lots of Roald Dahl-y activities and enjoyed clips from Matilda the Musical, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the BFG. Splendiferous! Thank you to you all for the great effort put into the costumes which were, as always, simply stunning. 

Our Home Learning Here are some examples of our fantastic home learning we created over the holidays. 

We had a great start to our new project with a visit from Mr. Morton and his amazing mobile Panetarium!  We learned lots of interesting facts about the planets, stars anc constellations, phases of the moon and were able to ask lots of questions. 

It was great to welcome so many parents and family to join in with our junk modelling session. We drew designs of our ideas and used a variety of recyclable materials to create space themed models!
