Welcome to Year 5!

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

Our class teacher is Miss Leggett and our teaching assistants are Miss Beswick and Mrs Beswick.

Our learning this year will revolve around some brilliant texts, including The Nowhere Emporium by Ross McKenzie, 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:

How different will you be when you are as old as your grandparents?

Who were the Anglo-Saxons?

Is there anybody out there?

Why should the rainforests be important to all of us?

Why does ‘what goes up always come down’?

Could you be the next CSI investigator?

Do all animals and plants start life as an egg?

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 Monday afternoons.

Music will take place on Tuesday afternoons.

PE will take place on Tuesday afternoons.


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 8.45am. We have a break in the morning when we can buy fruit and milk from the Snack Trolley at 10:30. We have our lunch at 12.15pm and then play out, after we have eaten, until 1.00pm. Our day finishes at 3.10pm.
