Welcome to Year 5's class page - we hope you find it a useful source of updates and information throughout the year.



In English, we have been studying fiction books set in faraway places.

We first read Cloud Tea Monkeys, which is set on a tea plantation. The children also took part in some tea-tasting whilst reading this.

The second book we looked at was Mysterious Traveller, which takes place in the African desert. The class then wrote their own short story set in a faraway place.






Our science topic is Earth & Space. We have been learning about the planets, night and day, seasons and the moon.

Check out our PLANETS display in the foyer:
