Welcome to Year 5
We hope that you have had a restful and restorative holiday – Mr Yeats and Miss Hyde are excited to work with and get to know the children this year.
Miss Hyde will be teaching in our class, along with Mr Yeats in the Autumn and the Summer terms; she’s already getting to know the children in the class. Additionally, Ms West, who was with the children in Year 4, is working with them again this year. We’re all very lucky!
We are looking forward to a productive and happy year. If you have any questions, please feel welcome to approach us at the end of the school day.
Term 1 – Learning with Others
We will be developing our team building skills this term. Our class targets are:

Term 1 Enquiry
What’s Really Out There?
We are going to start the year learning about the Solar System. The children have already excitedly researched the planets in order to create their own fact files. We’ve also discussed what we already know about our Solar System and we’ve thought about what we’d like to learn. As the term progresses, we might even get to experiment with rocket making.
Displays and Children’s Work
Take a look at some of our work and sometimes us in the classroom. You are always welcome to come into school and take a closer look. You can see from the displays in our classrooms the variety of topics we cover. As the year progresses, the displays change. By July, you will be able to see the whole range of subjects we have covered. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
