Believe and Achieve

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


We hope that you and the children have a wonderful summer and we are looking forward to seeing you all in September. 


In English, we will begin the term by studying a poem called 'The Malfeasance' and the children will then be given the opportunity to write their own versions. 


In maths, we will be on place value, rounding  and the four operations: adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. A secure knowledge of times tables is essential for this so please support your child by practising at home whenever you can.


In history we will be studying the Anglo-Saxons and the Viking struggle.


Finally, in science, we are studying forces.


Please remember, we have an open-door policy so if you have any concerns, please speak to us, email us via the admin email account or contact the office to arrange a convenient time to speak on the phone.




Our learning environment

Visit to 96 Library


Both classes had the opportunity to visit our local library and experience reading for purpose. The children followed instructions in beautiful books to draw and build Lego creations. Before leaving, some children read out instructions for yoga positions so the mornings ended on a chilled note! We were made to feel very welcome and those that had not signed up to join the library are now very keen to do so!

No Pens Day - November 2023


To mark No Pens Day, we put our writing tools down and concentrated on our speaking and listening skills!  Each child brought an item into school and explained why it was special to them. There was then an opportunity for questions. It was a lovely session and the children enjoyed learning new things about each other.

Astronomical Roadshow


We were lucky enough to be visited by the UK's  largest mobile planetarium system when the Astronomy Roadshow came to town! Sitting in this huge dome, the lesson brought our Earth and Space unit to life in an amazing way. It is something the children will never forget and was truly out of this world!
