Ensuring that each child reaches their potential and develops an enthusiasm for lifelong learning


Year Five

Welcome to Year Five!


The Year 5 team this year are Mr Jones, Ms Barrs, Miss Walden, Mr Newcombe and Miss Hatton.


We are looking forward to working with you to ensure that the children transition to Upper Key Stage 2 successfully and have a wonderful year.


On this page, you will find key information about our routines, expectations and curriculum. This includes our knowledge organisers. Knowledge organisers outline what the children will be learning across each subject in each term. They include key facts and vocabulary for the children to discuss with you and practise recalling at home. By the end of each unit of learning, they need to be able to explain these facts and vocabulary to others confidently. The knowledge organisers also include suggestions for ways the children could deepen their understanding through research and other tasks at home. We hope you find them useful.


If you need to contact a member of the team to discuss any questions or concerns, please email us at
