Year 5 - Our Learning

Autumn 2 Learning


This half-term we have done A LOT of learning. We have been learning about the Marvellous Mayans, as a part of our learning challenge, which the children really enjoyed! In History, they looked at who the Mayans were, their beliefs and why they disappeared. In Science, they have been learning all about Space and the movement of the planets in relation to the sun (ask your child what they know and they will be able to tell you some interesting facts!). For our English, we have looked completed a Journey Story about the brilliant book, Varjak Paw and 5D also looked at different biographies of astronauts. It has been a fantastic half-term with lots of fun, active learning and we are excited to begin a new half-term in 2020!





Autumn 1

This half term we have done lots of learning! Our fantastic Shakespeare cast have had the chance to go to a workshop to perform to another school what they have worked on so far in their production, which went fantastically! 

Our children have been enjoying our topic of the Amazon rainforest, exploring life cycles, where the Amazon is and lots of other interesting lessons. We also have linked our learning topic to our English writing, producing a newspaper article based on ideas about the current fire in the Amazon rainforest. 


Keep checking our website and also the school's twitter account for pictures of your children's brilliant work.

Hi Parents,


We hope you enjoyed our Welcome Meeting the other day and, as promised, we have uploaded the children's homework sheet (with all the information of what they should be completing this half-term), the objectives sheet - that was handed out during the meeting - and the entire terms spellings which are listed week-by-week.


Miss Murphy and Miss Coyne are excited to get the year started and push the children within their learning. 


As a reminder, those children involved in Shakespeare will have rehearsals on Wednesday afternoons (during school), Thursday mornings (during school) and Thursday afternoons from 3:00 p.m. until 3:55 p.m. This is to ensure that the children are getting enough rehearsals before the performance at Z-arts on Tuesday 5th November.


Thank you for your continued support and if you have any issues or concerns please speak to your us after school!

Dear children and parents... WELCOME TO YEAR 5!!

You've now had a chance to meet your new teachers and we can't wait to start our journey together. 

In the meantime, have a restful 6 weeks off. 

Remember to keep checking this class page for regular updates in September. 


Miss Coyne & Miss Murphy
