Mr Hughes : Year 5

Welcome to Year 5. We have had another really busy half-term and here are some of the activities that the children have been up to. We hope you enjoy!

English writing.

The children are really enjoying our book, "Hugo". We have been making predictions about the main characters, the setting, as well as what may happen in the future. The children have also written a recount of the main events so far and a diary entry this half-term!

ART and DT

In ART, the children have produced some fabulous sketching using different HB pencils which enable greater depths of shading! 

PE - Basketball

In PE, we have been playing basketball. The children have been developing their defensive and attacking skills!  


Nell Bank residential 2021

On June 15th and 16th, Year 5 will be taking part in a two day residential trip to Nell Bank. These are some photos of our amazing adventure to Nell Bank last year!

Geography - Trading 

Our new topic in Geography is looking at trading both within Europe and around the world. The children will look at the types of goods and services that are both imported and exported as well as using maps to locate various countries throughout the world.    


During this half-term the children will be learning more about the Hindu faith. The children have been playing a game to illustrate the Hindu belief that all of our actions have consequences.   

Gardening Club in Year 5

Gardening club has returned this Spring and thankfully the children had some good weather to begin planting their seeds!

Science - Properties of Materials 

In Science we have been looking at the properties of different materials. The children have been investigating if they are permeable, transparent or magnetic!
