Welcome to Year 5!




This year Mr Lever, Mrs Handley and Mrs Wing and Mrs Kirby will be teaching in Year 5 and will be supported by Mrs Lindley, Miss Barnes and Miss Kendall.


In addition to the Y5 Guide for Parents/Carers which gives an outline of the curriculum, we give more details about what your child is learning in weekly home support task sheets.


In Y5 we encourage the children to start to do more independent research work. Following previous parental feedback we have decided to consolidate this into ONE project in the Summer term.  During this term, the children will be encouraged to produce an independent project linked with an aspect of the curriculum. Children can be encouraged to use a variety of support materials to help, for example books, local library, family members with some knowledge, the internet or even family trips! Further information will be given later in the school year.



Y5AH will have P.E on Monday and Wednesday

Y5WK will have P.E on Monday and Wednesday

Y5ML will have P.E on Wednesday and Friday

The following are a summary of the main trips and visits we hope to undertake during Y5.  This is not a final list and may be subject to change due to lack of voluntary donations or other factors we cannot be aware of.  We always aim to enrich the curriculum by taking opportunities presented to us throughout the year.

Enrichment Activities

In line with our curriculum drivers we have a session on Friday afternoon in which the children are involved in what we have called Enrichment Activities.  All children will have the chance to participate and will make choices on a rotational basis.  We have tried to involve the children in the ideas for the groups and also linked them with activities we are involved in as a school, for example football and cross country.  We have also tried to ensure a good mix of activities with a focus of enjoyment and learning. 


Extra-Curricular Activities

A variety of clubs and activities are offered throughout the year.  As your child progresses through the school, more opportunities will become available.  In school activities are announced during assembly or by your child’s class teacher.  Letters will be sent home about all after and before school activities.
