Year 5 Classes

Welcome to Year 5


Welcome to our class page. We are set to embark on an amazing journey this year in year 5. From soaring into space, making Mayan temples, feasting with the Tudors and experiencing the trauma of being an evacuee, 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 – we look forward to sharing all these with you during our Family Fridays.


Neptune class are very excited about year 5!  We have settled in really well and are looking forward to the inspiring year ahead. This term we will be creating Mayan temples and journeying in to space by exploring the solar system. We are really excited about our English History topics during the rest of school year when we will joust with the Tudors and be evacuees from the Second World War. We will also be transforming our classroom into an Amazon Rainforest, discovering the world of magnets and much more!  Neptune class is full of character which makes our learning journeys even more adventurous.  Any task, challenge or quest Neptune Class are ready for!​​


Saturn class are really excited to kick-start the autumn term and embark on a historical journey into the Ancient Mayan times. From creating Mayan temples, dressing up for ‘Day of the dead’ to creating the different layers of the earth’s crust in Science, it’s a term not to be missed! Tudors, Stuarts and the notorious Oliver Cromwell await them in term two and then they will get to showcase their artistic and creative talents by turning our classroom into a rainforest in term 3! There is so much to learn, it’s an adventure they will truly remember! Saturn class have shown huge amounts of enthusiasm already and settled in well with a positive attitude and we can’t wait to embark on our fabulous learning journey in Year 5!
