Welcome to Year Five

Welcome to Year Five. We are four form entry so have four classes in this year group. The Year Five staff team are:

  • Rachel Ward, Sarah Welch, Claire McGeown, Victoria Fox, Emma Wilkinson and Mark Howes

Our classes are named using the Year Group followed by the Class Teacher’s initials. Our classes are Y5EW/RW, Y5SW, Y5CM and Y5VF.

We are going to be studying and exploring six exciting topics this academic year. These are:

  • Beast Creator
  • Stargazers
  • Alchemy Island
  • Pharaohs
  • Scream Machine
  • Allotment

Topics will be explored through all areas of the curriculum.


We use a range of rewards throughout Year Five from stickers, star of the day, star of the week, dojo points and weekly Celebration Certificates which are presented in our Celebration Assemblies. We use school coms to communicate with parents.

Throughout the year, parents will be invited to share their children's achievements in class, join in with the children’s experiences and come on school trips and local visits if able to volunteer some time.
