Year 5 News

Welcome to Year Five . In Year 5 this year, the class teachers will be Mr Cutler , Miss Fletcher and Mrs Trevis.

We are really excited about our learning this year. In Year 5, children will have the opportunity to read, amongst other high quality books, one of Mrs Trevis’ personal favourites, Clockwork by Phillip Pullman.

Mr Cutler is particularly looking forward to discovering the Vikings and the ancient Islamic civilisation during our history lessons and Miss Fletcher can’t wait to get stuck into the space topic as part of our Science this year.


Mrs Trevis is also looking forward to teaching our Geography topics this year, which include: natural disasters and the understanding of urban and rural areas within the UK.

In year 5, we will also learn a variety of skills in PE, such as invasion games in outdoor PE, a personal favourite of Mr Cutler, and Yoga in indoor PE. In DT the children will be learning a variety of techniques to create structures, mechanisms and meals and in Art there will be the opportunity to get their hands dirty in sculpting and moulding as well as drawing and designing in various medias and styles

On top of all this, children in Year 5 will, throughout the year, experience our themed weeks and get to take part in our ever popular vision day as well as the opportunity to go on our fantastic residential trip in the Autumn term, a personal highlight for Miss Fletcher

We cannot wait to go on this learning journey with all the Year 5 children to experience all of this and much more.
