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

I hope your child has a fantastic year!

Book curriculum

In Year 5, in Autumn 1 we studied Goodnight Mr Tom. In the story William is evacuated to the

country to live with Mr Tom. As the story develops, their relationship blossoms until disaster

strikes and William needs to go back to his Mum's. He sadly misses Mr Tom. Will he

ever see him again?


Our next book is Around The World In 80 Days. Philleas Fogg encounters many difficulties as he heads off around the world on his adventures including train robberies, elephant and balloon rides. Can he make it around the world before time runs out? Only time will tell.
