Year 5

Welcome to Year 5.


You will find lots of important information about our class on this page. Below is a snap-shot of what we have been getting up to! This will be updated many times throughout the school year as we come across new experiences! 

We are a class of 20 children, our teacher is Mrs Sanderson.

Our PE days are every Thursday and children will also go swimming every Monday.

Homework will be sent home every Friday to be returned to school the following Thursday. 

The Rainforest 


This term the children are learning all about why the rainforest is so important, with a key focus on tropical rainforests. 


In Music, the children looked at a composition created by the choir Genius which showed how the sounds of the rainforest could be recreated using just their hands. The children studied the piece then worked together to create their own version. I'm sure you will agree that they done a fantastic job!
