Year 5

Welcome to Year Five 2020-21!


In Year Five we hope to always 'be the best that we can be!'


We hope to be able to share with you some of the activities that we have completed in class and any news or exciting events taking place. Watch this space...

Our Year 5 Curriculum

We have some exciting topics coming up in the Autumn term in Year 5...


Our first topic in RE is all about Ourselves.  We find out:

  • Each person is made in the image and likeness of God.  
  • To know ourselves and to appreciate that our value and uniqueness is central to our wellbeing.


We begin our Science journey in Year 5 by investigating the uses of everyday materials.

Look out for photos on this page showing all the investigations we will be carrying out!


We are going to love finding out about the Romans!  Our enquiry question is:

What was life like in Roman Britain?

Design Technology

This half term we will be designing, making and evaluating a bread snack for a Roman Soldier to eat during his guard duty on Hadrian's Wall.  The Great Year 5 Bake Off!


Year 5 are in for a treat this year as we learn the flutes with our talented music teachers.  Look out for those flutes coming home around October half term!  


Year 5 are going to be working hard on their fitness this half term.

As well as our regular weekly PE lesson, there will be a weekly lesson in Dance with a dance teacher.

We start our swimming lessons on Monday 28th September.  We go swimming EVERY DAY for 4 weeks.  We also walk to and from Castle Leisure Centre so everyone will be super fit by half term!

Welcome back!  I am really looking forward to seeing all my new Year 5 children back in school on Tuesday.  Come into school at the normal KS2 entrance (at the bottom of the stairs up to Year 5 and 6) at 8:35 am and come straight upstairs with your coats, PE kits and even packed lunch boxes if you have them.  I'll be waiting upstairs to explain everything to you. 


We will be doing LOTS of hand washing and there will be some changes to play times and lunchtimes but don't worry, you will still have plenty of time to catch up with your friends and enjoy your learning again.


Remember, you will need to be collected on the playground from the same place you came into school at 3:10 pm.


See you on Tuesday!
