Year 5

Welcome to Year 5


Year 5 are taught by Mrs Blakemore and are supported by Miss Edmunds.This year, we are focusing on five key topics, spread across the different half terms: Saxons and Vikings, Our World, Space, The Mayans and USA: The Civil Rights Movement. You can find out more about our learning in Year 5 by clicking the link below. 

There are a number of exciting opportunities for the children based around our learning topics, such as the thrilling (and highly educational) visit to Cadbury World in Birmingham!


The children have more responsibility in Year 5 and are encouraged to be independent learners. We place a high emphasis on learning and progress, but equally on being excellent role models for the younger children in the school.


The children in Year 5 follow the new National Curriculum, which you can read more about on the Department for Education website.
