Our Spring Term topic is 'Explorers'

The books we are studying are: 'Arthur and the Golden Rope' by Joe Todd Stanton,  'The Lost book of Adventure' from the notebooks of the Unknown Adventurer and 'Odd and the Frost Giants' by Neil Gaiman.


The Lost Book of Adventure : Unknown Adventurer : 9781786032966

Odd and the Frost Giants: Neil Gaiman: Bloomsbury Children's Books



Many of our lessons will be themed around our topic. In History, we are studying the  Viking Explorers; in Art we will be using tone and shade to create jungle and forest settings; in Science we will study forces and space exploration.


This term, 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.

Long Term Plan

Remote Learning

Dear Year five

As we are now in a national lockdown, you will be able to access your remote learning here.   We are missing you, but are really enjoying seeing you on our live sessions.
