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

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




Many of our lessons will be themed around our topic. In Geography, we are learning map skills; in art we will be studying Van Gogh and using mixed media to create our own version of 'Starry Night'; in Science we will study Living Things and their Habitats.


This term, Year 5 have PE on Tuesday and we ask that children come to school in their PE clothes rather than their school uniform.

Our other PE lesson this term is swimming (every Friday) and on this day full school uniform is to be worn, not PE kit.

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.
