Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome to Year 5! We’re really looking forward to the challenges this year will bring.

Our class teacher is Mrs Birnie and our teaching assistant is Mrs Beswick.

Our learning this year will revolve around some brilliant texts, including Beowulf by Michael Morpurgo, The Lorax by Dr Seuss and Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce. These texts will be the focus of our English lessons and will link into other subjects such as history, geography and science. Alongside the texts we will be exploring the following key questions:

  • Who were the Anglo-Saxons?
  • Why does what goes up always come down?
  • Why should the rainforests be important to all of us?
  • Could you be the next CSI investigator?
  • Is there anybody out there?

We will also continue our learning from Year 4 in subjects such as Maths, MFL, PE, Music and PSHE.

This year:

  • Swimming will take place on Mondays.
  • Multi-sports club will take place after school on Mondays.
  • Music will take place on Tuesdays.
  • PE will take place on Tuesdays.
  • Brass band will take place on Fridays.
  • Reading book bags will be given out and returned daily. Please take the time to read every day.

In Year 5, our day starts at 8.50am. We have a break in the morning when we can buy fruit and milk from the Snack Trolley at 10:50. We have our lunch at 12.20pm and then play out, after we have eaten, until 1.00pm. Our day finishes at 3.10pm.
