Year 5 Curriculum/Assessment information for parents



Welcome to Year 5. Year 5 staff are: Mr. Newman (Teacher), Miss. Wells (Trainee Teacher), Miss. Simpson (Apprentice Teaching Assistant) and Mrs. Potts (Teaching Assistant).


Our topic this term is Pharaoh - a study of Ancient Egypt! We will learn about the myths, mysteries and 'curses', the Pharaohs and Great Pyramids as well as what life might have been like. Our class text is The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan.


Our PE days this term are Tuesdays and Fridays. Tuesday PE is swimming for some children (letters have been sent home) or PE with Gordon Fearn.


We are always here to help and will make every effort to deal with questions or issues as efficiently as possible. Either contact the school office or speak to us before or after-school to arrange an appointment.
