Year 5

Welcome to Year 5


Can I say a warm welcome to Year 5!

Over the year your child will be studying:

  • Derby and Derbyshire
  • Festivals
  • World War II
  • Earth and beyond
  • Living things and their habitats
  • Princes, peasants and pestilence


They will also be studying a range of quality texts; both fiction and non-fiction. These texts include: The Jamie Drake Equation and Charlotte's Web.

Over the year, the children will be invited to join us on trips including Carsington Water and Adventure Farm. They will also experience a planetarium coming into school.

I hope your child has a fantastic year!

The Year 5 team.

Our Learning this Term

What will my child be studying this term?

Fantastic Work by Fatima and Priya - as a class we said thank you to "Wonderdome" for their visit. Fatima and Priya's work was chosen to send to say thank you

In Year 5 we are currently studying Charlotte's Web. In the story Wilbur, the pig, meets a spider called Charlotte. Wilbur isn't just an ordinary pig and needs looking after properly. We have written instructions about how to look after Wilbur. A very well done to both Mirela and Viktoria for producing excellent pieces of writing showing how to look after Wilbur.
Key Dates

Year 5 children were selected to represent Pear Tree at the Derby Book Festival and worked with a visiting author. 

They produced a fantastic song which they sung in assembly. Please see pictures in the gallery.

On Tuesday the 17th April, Year 5 children visited Adventure Farm in Burton-On-Trent. 

Please see our photos in the gallery. As you can see the children are having a fantastic time!

Many thanks to all the staff making it possible for the children to have such a great day.
