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. 

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.
