Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 page! In Year 5 we have two classes. Our class teachers are Mr. Forbes and Mrs. Wood.


During the autumn term, we will be exploring Rivers. Throughout this topic we will identify geographical features of rivers, research pollution and use our creative writing skills to produce setting descriptions and poetry. We are looking forward to taking part in an immersive day, this will involve a variety of activities linked to our topic.


We will also be applying our DT skills to create framed structures. Year 5 have been challenged with creating bug houses for our environmental area. We can’t wait to see the children’s creativity and we will be checking in throughout the year to see what new residents we have.

We are excited to use a range of computing equipment to create podcasts. This process will involve recording, mixing, editing and adding background music. We hope to be able to share with you all.

Our science focus for the start of the year will be forces. We will learn about famous scientists and conduct investigations to identify the effects of air resistance, friction and gravity. In the second half of the term, we will blast off into space to develop an understanding of the universe around us.
