Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


In Year Five, children are provided with a vast range of exciting opportunities and experiences to help them develop into mature and confident individuals.  We feel that this prepares them for the challenges of Year Six and ultimately secondary school.

Some of the many exciting events include our children:

 - Experiencing stargazing.
 - Visiting The Collection.
 - Taking part in a virtual stargazing experience.

Things you need to know in Year 5:

Below are some important documents for Year 5. We have included copies of the homework and our most recent newsletter for your information below.  Keep checking back for information about forthcoming parents meetings and important dates.



English homework is given out at the start of the term and covers every week during that term. Homework should be handed in every Thursday. It is hoped that by handing out the homework at the start of the term it will help to promote flexibility.


Maths homework is set on Seesaw on a Monday and should be completed by Thursday.

Lowry Inspired Art Work

We have been studying the work and style of Lowry. We used his colour pallette and use of line to create our own paintings in his style. We are very pleased with the results.
