Welcome to Year 5


Can I say a warm welcome to Year 5!

Over the year your child will be studying:

  • Who let the Gods out (Greece)
  • Around the world in 80 days
  • The Jamie Drake equation (Earth, sun and moon)
  • Goodnight Mr Tom (World War II)
  • Charlotte's web (Animals and habitats)
  • Escape from Pompeii (Romans)


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 Greek workshops and Adventure Farm. They will also experience a planetarium coming into school.

I hope your child has a fantastic year!
