Year 5

Welcome to Year 5


Class Teacher: Mrs Philp

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Lawrence

Year 5 is taught by Mrs Philp.

We are very excited about the topics we have coming up.  We will be continuing to work hard in numeracy and learn lots of new skills. In literacy we are looking at stories based on the Tudors and writing our own Tudor stories. In topic, we will be studying the Tudors and learning all about Henry VIII. 

We have had a brilliant time designing and then building our own fairground rides. They work using a circuit, which was difficult to install.


They look amazing, but we aren’t sure if they would pass a Health and Safety test. We will show them in our class assembly after half term.

We had a brilliant time during arts week. We chose the country Australia and during the week we learnt a dance based on the Aboriginals, drew pictures of Uluru and made our own boomerangs and didgeridoos.


We also enjoyed our pottery session and on our pot we included figures of spiders, snakes and kangaroos


We enjoyed Friday afternoon when we had to opportunity to show everything we had done to our parents. We also had the chance to look at all the things the other classes had been up to.

This week Year 5 have had a visit from Mr Sanderson to learn more about the amazing world of augmented reality.


We started off with a virtual reality tour of Paris using an app called google expeditions. We took some photographs of the main landmarks including Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower. We then used Imovie to make a tourist advert showing the best parts of Paris.

We then saved the videos to a separate app called HP Reveal to make an aura that when the iPad was held over it, the video we made would play. We all had an amazing morning with Mr Sanderson.

In Year 5 this term we have been having lots of outside sports sessions. These have included yoga, tennis and football skills. Our favourite at the moment has to be the martial arts sessions. We have Matt come in and teach us some martial arts skills. We focus on standing tall, breathing deep and focusing.
