What will you read next?



Welcome to Year 5. Year 5 staff are: Mr. Newman (Teacher), Mrs. Ledger (Teaching Assistant) and Miss. Wells (trainee teacher). 


Our topic this term is Off with her Head. We will be travelling back in time to the 1500s to find out about King Henry VII, Tudor life, homes, crime and punishment, dance and costumes. We will read extracts from Shakespearean plays including Macbeth.


Our PE days this term are Wednesdays and Thursdays and this will take place outside so make sure you have your outdoor PE kit.


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.

A cracking Science lesson

Can you slow the fall of an egg to prevent it breaking?

As part of our learning about gravity and air resistance, we attempted to answer the question using a range of resources provided to us. Mr. Ambrick helped us drop the eggs, in their baskets, before we analysed the results of our experiment.
