Year 5


Mrs Marshall and Mr Wylie would like to welcome you to Year 5. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Wood and Mrs Fowkes.

In Year 5, we learn about some very exciting topics!

  • Autumn – The Victorians
  • Spring 1 – Space
  • Spring 2 – The Vikings
  • Summer – Around the World Explorers

In science we will be investigating the properties and changes of different materials, we will look at living things and their habitats, discover what force is and how we can change it, learn about animals (including humans) and how they change and reproduce, and finally we will discover what really is out there in our space topic. We kicked the year off with our amazing trip to the Victorian Workhouse (Southwell). Our children were transported back in time to become orphaned Victorian children for the day. This absolutely fantastic trip has given us first-hand experience to help our creative writing and inspire our Victorians topic. We have lots of other exciting things planned too! Look out for photos being posted and for more updates on what Year 5 are getting up to this year.space 2
