Welcome to Year 5

In Year 5, we strive to be the best we can be, enjoy making the most of a variety of learning opportunities and have fun during our time together at school. 

"I have come that they may have life and have it to the full!" John 10:10

We support each other to grow, and reach our potential.

In Year 5, we are supported by:

  • Miss O'Connor     - Class Teacher
  • Miss Roads    - Teaching Assistant


Autumn Term

Earth and Space is our topic this term, which we are really enjoying so far! We have been learning all about NASA, as well as planetary motion. We will be learning about key leaders and pioneers of space travel... and even The Big Bang Theory!

Alongside our Space topic, we are learning about The Victorians. From how they lived, to what school was like for children in Victorian times. We will be learning all about the artist William Morris and will be developing our skills in art in order to design and make prints in his style!

Our PSHE lessons are all about communication, teamwork and working together to achieve goals. Our PE lessons will echo this learning as well!


Our PE days will be on a Wednesday and Friday - children should come into school in their PE kit on those days. Full PE kit information can be found on the website under: school information>uniform>PE kit.
