Our Autumn Term topic is 'The Bold and the Brave'

The books we are studying are: 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' by J K Rowling, 'Queen of the Falls' by Chris Van Allsburg and 'Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls' by Elena Favilli & Francesca Cavallo.


Many of our lessons will be themed around our topic. In Geography, we are studying map skills related to 'Harry Potter'; in Art, we are looking at the work of Van Gogh and recreating his painting 'Starry Night' with a magical twist; in History and Design & Technology, we are learning about the Anglo Saxons.

Weekly Overview

In the instance that your child is required to remain off school as a result of self-isolating, here is an overview of the learning taking place in class this week.

There are links to useful resources and games that can be clicked to enable children to access their learning at home.



Year 5 have PE on Tuesday and Thursday.

On these days we ask that children come to school in their PE clothes rather than their school uniform.

Weather dependant they can wear their shorts and school coloured PE T- shirt and House PE sweatshirt. If the weather is cold, then track suit bottoms/leggings would be more suitable. Trainers are preferable to pumps as it is possible the children may be outdoors for some lessons.
