Welcome to Year 5! We love to learn and look out for our friends. We are enthusiastic, inquisitive and are always looking for ways to improve and extend our learning. 

Our topic is ‘Alchemy Island

It’s time to suspend your disbelief and open your mind. We’re going on a magical journey to Alchemy Island. Can you find the gold hidden deep within the island’s mysterious landscape? The only way is to study the map, unravel the riddle and begin your adventure.  You’ve got your map, coordinates and everything else you need to make your way across Alchemy Island. Don’t forget to pack your imagination.

Each week we have 2 PE lessons and these will take place on Wednesdays and Fridays. Please make sure your child wears their PE kit to school on these days. PE lessons will be outdoors so you may wish to consider your child having a tracksuit for the day. Please make sure all earrings are removed. We also take part in the Daily Mile on non PE days
