Year 5


Welcome to Year 5

The penultimate year group at St John’s
During Year 5, the children will have the opportunity to undertake challenging work whilst enjoying themselves at the same time. The year promises to provide children with a rich variety of learning through lessons that will be taught to suit all types of learners. There is a large emphasis placed on encouraging independent work for all children as well as collaborative learning in table groups and as a whole class.

In Year 5 the class will be given the chance to participate on a weekly basis in our Community Cohesion programme that links our children with Oakleigh Special School. The children will be involved in helping children and supporting them in their learning and development and we hope that this will continue in January 2022.

Our class topics this year will be:

-Dynamic Dynasties

Our class book for this topic will be ‘Bronze and Sunflower’ by Cao Wenxuan.

-Sow, Grow and Farm

Our class book for this topic will be ‘The Secret Garden’ by Francis Hodgson Burnett.

-Groundbreaking Greeks

Our class book for this topic will be ‘Who let the Gods out?’ by Maz Evans.

This term we are really excited to be taking a main role in our school’s KS2 Nativity, which we hope we will be able to perform in our church.
