Year 5



Welcome to the Year 5 section of our school website.

We will be learning about Space and the Tudors and many more interesting subjects. We will be delving into the lives of Vikings and Saxons before finally moving on to investigate Tropical Rainforests and the work of David Attenborough.

In Year 5 we are a team, we believe that learning is a journey and should be fun. We know that when we work together, we can achieve amazing things! Due to our determination and perseverance, we stretch ourselves every day – we are not afraid of a challenge and we hope that you see this when you look at our fantastic work.

We have a large teaching team in Year 5 including LSAs and HLTAs. The class teachers are Mrs Preston, Ms Wilding, Mrs Parsons, Mr Falconer, Miss Sutcliffe and Miss Williams. We also have the excellent support of our dedicated HLTA, Mrs Whalley. All of us have an open door policy so should you have any concerns or ideas (it doesn’t matter how small it seems), please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Best wishes,

The Year 5 Team
