Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Our teaching team includes Miss Garry, Mrs Fuentes, Miss Cheetham and Miss Sykes (Class Teachers) and Mrs Laiker, Mrs Wallwork and Miss Crawley (Learning Support Assistant).

Our Summer Term theme is ‘Identity’, inspired by a range of engaging texts that will be used across our school curriculum. The texts that we are using give strong links to identity and self, and prepare the children to be secure in their own identities in preparation for their transition to Year Six!

Our Autumn Bookshelf: –

  • Running on the Roof of the World by Jess Butterworth
  • Journey by Aaron Becker
  • A Kind of Spark by Elle McNicoll
  • The Iron Man by Ted Hughes
  • Titanic by Joe Fullman
  • Courage in a Poem by a range of different poets including Cecilia Knapp, Debjani Chatterjee and Valerie Bloom
