Take a look at our long term planning to see what we will be getting up to in Year 5: 


Important Information:

  • Our library day is Thursday. During our library session, children can take books out of our well-stocked school library.
  • Children are given the opportunity to change their home reading books after lunchtime. The changing of these books will be monitored.
  • Children swim EVERY OTHER MONDAY and are either in Group 1 or Group 2 (spare letters with groupings on are in the classroom).
  • Children may bring age-appropriate reading books in form home to enjoy during Quiet Reading sessions.

Halloween Disco - 26th October 2019

Year 5 had a spook-tacular time at the Halloween disco with the rest of KS2! They played party games, braved the Slime Room and danced the night away. Thankfully, Mr Rolfe captured some terrifying photos from the night.

Science - Phases of the Moon

We are loving our first Science topic, Earth and Space. We have been looking at why the moon appears to change shape in the sky. We used Oreos to help us which turned out to be a very popular (and messy!) way of learning about the moon's phases.
