Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome to Year 5!

Mrs Gratwick and Mr Buchanan are the Year 5 teachers who aim to make Year 5 challenging but fun for the children. Alongside the teachers, we have the fantastic Miss Brown and Mrs De La Rue our Year 5 teaching assistants. Our classrooms are currently upstairs in the main building from where we can admire the view of our amazing school grounds.

Throughout the year we aim to keep you fully informed with all the information you require, whether this is about the day to day events in the year group, your own child or whole school events.

We really look forward to working with you and your child this year and hope it is a year that they will treasure with fond memories.

Check out our experiences from Autumn term!


 Autumn Term 2023

We thoroughly enjoyed our learning all about the Vikings in Autumn 1 followed by our fascinating topic about the Norman Conquest in Autumn 2! Have a look at some photos from our first term in Year 5! 

We enjoyed reading these texts in Autumn term: 



This January we kick off the new year with our history and geography topic 'Early Islamic Civilisation'. Throughout this topic we will explore the wonders of how people in these times devised incredible inventions which we still use today. We will look at how this time period shaped our world as we know it whilst also comparing this time to British history and events. We can't wait to get started! 

Our key texts for this topic are Aladdin and we will also read Arabian Nights during whole class reading time. 


Spring 2 

We are also busy planning our next topic for Spring 2: Russia. We will send out more information nearer the time.
