Welcome to our year group page, where you can find our curriculum overviews, latest news, photos of learning opportunities and achievements in Year 5.

Current Topic- Does your country need you?  Summer Term 5

Throughout the summer term (1 and 2) Year 5 pupils will immerse themselves into learning about WW2.  Over the course of the term, children will learn why the war started, who was involved (including key people and countries), rationing, evacuation, The Blitz and much much more.  All our learning will be linked to WW2 (where possible) and the children will get to explore the impact of WW2 on modern day life.  

In English children will read Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo.  An audio version of Friend or Foe that you can listen to at home can be found at 

Reminders and Routines

Children must bring a named water bottle into school each day and all school uniform should be clearly labelled to ensure it can be returned to your child if misplaced. If you have arranged for your child to be collected by another adult that this is communicated to the office or the class teacher.

During summer months, please also make sure your child has a sun hat to wear outside and has sun cream applied each morning before school.
