Year 5 Classes

Welcome to Year 5


Welcome to our class page. What an amazing journey we are set to take this year in year 5. From soaring into space, to making Mayan temples, to feasting with the Tudors, we will be learning so much. In particular I’m looking forward to sharing your children’s home learning and filling our class with all their wonderful thoughts and ideas. We’ve started the year brilliantly, finding out all the gory details of Mayan sacrifice and making our own mini Earths from Playdoh – all of which we want to share with you on Fridays.


Neptune class are very excited about year 5!  We have already created exquisite Mayan temples and felt what it would be like to be sacrificed.  We have started our journey in to space by exploring the solar system.  Now we really can’t wait for the rest of the school year when we will joust with the Tudors, transform our classroom into an Amazon Rainforest and discover the world of magnets!  Neptune class is full of character which makes our learning journeys even more adventurous.  Any task, challenge or quest Neptune Class are ready for!‚Äč




We are so excited to embark on a fabulous learning journey in Year five this year!  We have so many fun and exciting topics planned, from exploring the world of the Mayan Civilization right through to learning about the terrible Tudors! We are currently exploring what lies beneath the Earth’s surface in Science and we created models of the different layers using playdough! We look forward to learning all about the spectacular Amazon rainforest and transforming our classroom into a scene out of the Jungle book! We would love to see you on our family Fridays every week at 3pm, where we can showcase all our fabulous learning!
