  2. Year 5

Year 5 - Sapphire Class & Topaz Class

In September we usually invite parents and carers into class to see and hear about the expectations on children's learning for this year. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 this cannot happen this year.

Year 5 children are increasingly involved in taking on leadership roles within the school.

They are able to apply to become a Sports Captain for their House, a member of the "Good Life" team who ensure that our Eco Schools accreditation is maintained, or a member of the Bike-It Crew supporting our active travel ethos.

Year 5s develop their peer learning skills through our Reading Buddies scheme.

Educational Visits & Visitors

Please check below for the proposed educational visits and visitors across this year's learning. 

Letters for each trip will be sent out nearer the time with more detailed information along with requests for payment donation.


Autumn Term – To the Rescue!

Due to our current COVID-protective measures we are unable to take pupils off-site for educational visits. This is under continual review and we hope to re-instate these as soon as it is safe to do so.


Spring Term – Space: The Final Frontier

Visit by the Planetarium

We have the opportunity to explore our cosmic neighbourhood from the safety of the school hall. A giant inflatable planetarium allows us the chance to visit destinations in the solar system, the Milky Way galaxy and beyond.


Visit by a Rocket Engineer

A real life rocket engineer will come into school to share their experiences of working with and designing rockets and satellites.


Trip to the Observatory, Herstmonceux

During this trip, we will participate in a telescope tour and find out about ‘what’s out there’! We will complete a rocket workshop and try to develop our bridge building skills! Throughout the day, children will have unlimited access to the indoor and outdoor hands-on exhibits! This trip will have a late finish (approximately 4.30pm).


Summer Term – Gifts, Games & Gods

Trip to the British Museum, London

We are so excited that we managed to get a space on the very popular workshops at the British Museum, London! We will work with the museum staff to develop our historical enquiry skills and handle a range of exciting artefacts. We are lucky that the coach company has agreed to take us on a tour of some of the popular sights in London too! This trip will have an early start and late finish – approximately 7.30am – 5.30pm.
