Year 5

Welcome to Year 5


Class Teacher: 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. 

Please note, the link to the website in the pack for week beginning Monday 13th April is incorrect. Please find the correct link here

Below is a link to our Maths home learning. This is updated weekly so you can complete new tasks each day.

The package contains five lessons per week. Each lesson has a video introduction and activity to complete.

This term in Year 5 we have been learning all about the Victorians. We have created some lovely pieces of artwork based on this era. We have looked at how afternoon tea was introduced by the Victorians and we created our own patterns on a teapot and cup in the style of William Morris.


We also created our own butterfly images, as the Victorians were huge fans of collecting insects. We are really looking forward to going to Blists Hill after the half term to learn more about what life would have been like in Victorian times.

In Year 5 we have made a great start to the new school year and we are all working very hard.


In our topic we are learning all about the Tudors. We have been learning some interesting facts about Henry VIII and his six wives. We have also completed some fabulous pieces of art, including paintings of Tudor Galleons.


We are really looking forward to our trip to Hereford Cathedral which will be after half term where we will be taking part in the Tudor Trail and possibly meeting Henry VIII. We will also be designing and constructing our own Black and White Tudor houses.


In Science, we have been exploring forces. We have recently conducted an investigation on parachutes to determine whether the size of the parachute affects the speed the parachute falls at.
