Catholic Primary School

Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 Class page,


We hope you have all had a wonderful Summer holiday and are ready to get back to School!


This year the children will be learning a great deal of new and exciting content.


In English we will be writing non-chronological reports, letters, newspaper articles and reading the novel Secrets of a Sun King by Emma Carroll. In Maths lessons, we will begin the year by extending the children's learning on 5-digit place value. In Science, our topics will be Materials and Forces. Within RE, our topics are 'ourselves' and advent in the lead up to Christmas. Our History and Geography foci will be based on the Ancient Egyptians. Within Design and Technology, the children will learn how to make a pop-up book. In ICT lessons, we will be learning about internet communication and sharing information. Our PSHE focus will be based around being ourselves and celebrating diversity. In Music lessons with Mrs. Giles, the children will learn a variety of sea shanties whilst using their voices to sing, alongside percussion instruments and cups to create sounds.


If you have any questions or enquiries please don't hesistate to ask me on the door at the end of the day.



Mr. Town, Mrs. Andrews and Mrs. Lyons.
