Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 where we have a great team of teachers and Tas who are excited to be working alongside your children this year.

 Mrs Clifton is in Newmarket Class and Mrs Woodman is in Goodwood Class. Our wonderful Tas are Ms Mott and Mrs Lauder who will work with us at various times across the week.

We are also fortunate to have with us Mrs Guest who will teach Music on Fridays and Mrs Bellinger and Mrs Rawlings who will teach groups of children Maths on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. 

We have lots of exciting topics planned for our Year 5 classes this year to make their learning lively and engaging.

  • Term 1 – Can Water be stronger than Rock?    (Stig of the Dump/Cheddar Gorge)
  • Term 2 – 100. (War Horse and World War 1)
  • Term 3 – Does Space ever End?   ( Science)
  • Term 4 – Can you buy the Sky?    ( The Plains of North America)
  • Term 5 – What If?     (Dt/inventors)
  • Term 6 – Wonder     (Pshe/Relationships)

There are several trips planned throughout the year including a visit to Cheddar Gorge and the amazing caves and a visit to The American Museum in Bath. Alongside this will be shorter visits to Chippenham Library and Museum and collaborative work with secondary schools.

We hope that your child has a fantastic time in Year 5. Our aim is for them to develop a real love for learning and recognise their potential as learners and as citizens of our school and community. We are proud to have high expectations of ourselves and the children we teach and look forward to working closely with them over the coming terms.

If you do have further questions, please pop into see us or make an appointment via the school office. Many Thanks for your support.
