Year 5

Latest News

Welcome to Year 5 Class page.


Term 1 kicked off with an exciting balloon-powered rocket design competition with Year 6 linked to our topic 'To Infinity and Beyond'. This was a great afternoon and we all enjoyed making and testing the rockets, to see whose went the furthest, and discussing why this was.

Also linked to our topic, Year 5 have been learning how to use different colours, materials and textures to create collages which represent different feelings and emotions. You can see some excellent examples of these on our picture gallery!

We have also been learning about the Sun, Earth and Moon, how we get night and day, how light travels in straight lines and also how we see things.
