Welcome to Year 5


Welcome to 5M and 5S. In Year 5 the children will be working with an additional adult- Mrs Fisher. In 5S Ms Barnes will be also working in the class. Your children may be working with other adults. The learning mentors this year will be Mrs Campbell and Ms Coules. 

Embedded Blog


For Summer 1, our main focus will be travel. Our core question "How important is the sun to us?" links to our science topic, which is space. The children will study the solar system and how it affects our lives on earth, which also links to our book Cosmic, that we are studying in literacy.  

The children will get a further insight into travel, during our topic in Creative Curriculum: North America. They will look at what it means to live in North Ameica, and what makes it different to other continents. 

Using knowledge from our Planetarium trip, alongside what they have learnt in class, the children will then go on to produce a science- fiction story, a non- chronological report and a newspaper piece. Our Computing topic is We Are Co-authors , where the children will create their information Wikipedia page.

Please find our curriculum newsletter attached.
