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 Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse by the brilliant Chris Riddell. Riddell is an illustrator as well as an author, so we have enjoyed watching his drawing videos with the story.

This book inspired us to write our own Goth Girl chapter.






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