Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 Class Page 


We are so excited for the year ahead and sharing new, fantastic topics with your children. Our year starts with an exploration of the Viking Age as they look to invade Britain. Our learning expands across the curriculum as we study the Norse Mythology and write our own Norse Legend. In the Spring term, we focus on Space and how we came to know the galaxy that it is today. 


Our learning will also take us to South America and we will explore the incredible geography and culture. Our Summer term centres around the local area and the enriching history Hertfordshire has. We also explore the great rivers of the world and their importance to those around them. 


In the Autumn term, year five will have Forest School on a Monday afternoon. They will be going out despite the weather so please ensure they are prepared with appropriate clothing and footwear. A waterproof jacket and trainers or wellies are ideal as these can be worn with the school uniform. 


Children in Oak are taught by Mrs Carver and will be supported by Mrs Rollini and Mrs Beamish. Silver Birch are taught by Miss Skinner and will be supported by Mrs Leach and Mr Kilty.  Miss Hamer, Mrs Jones, Miss Rowlands and Mrs Gibson will also support in year five as key workers. 


PE Lessons will be taught on the following days: 

Oak – Tuesday and Thursday 

Silver Birch – Wednesday and Friday 

On these days children need to be wearing their PE kit on arrival and will remain in their PE kit for the day. 


Please use the links on this page to find out more about what we will be doing this term. 


Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns or questions. 


Miss Skinner and Mrs Carver
