Year 5

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.

We have been learning about the lifecycles of mammals, birds, amphibians and flowering and non-flowering plants. Look at our leaflets:

Stargazing Sleepover

We had an amazing time at the stargazing sleepover. After setting up in the hall, we sang songs around the campfire. After that, Mr Morton kindly returned to school to show us the star constellations that we learned about in the planetarium in real life! Then it was parachute games, hotdogs and hot chocolate before settling down for the night for a film. We had a great time! See our pictures below:

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.

                                                    ... and much much more!

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 handed out every Monday, due in every Thursday.

Weekly spellings

Here are our weekly spellings for term 4. Our pass mark for the year group is 9/15. Any child scoring less than this will need to have another practise and re-take their test. Please encourage your child to practise their spellings as often as possible. Regular practise is the key to success!

Reading expectations

We expect the children to read for 25 minutes per day in year 5 (the standard required for Renaissance Master Class). Reading diaries are checked and signed by their class teacher weekly. Please ensure that these are filled out at least four times per week.

Moon phases

Can you think of a more fun way to learn about moon phases than using Oreo cookies? We scraped off the filling to represent each moon phase. However, there was a catch... we could only eat the ones we could name correctly. Surprisingly enough, we learned them very quickly!

Starlincs Mobile Planetarium


We were very lucky to be able to experience the Starlincs Mobile Planetarium. After crawling inside the giant dome, we learned all about the Earth, Sun and Moon, the planets and took part in some daytime stargazing. We are now looking forward to applying our skills at the Stargazing Sleepover on 8th November.

The Planetarium


We have enjoyed improving our fitness in P.E lessons. Each week, we strive to beat our previous score.
