Year 5K


Mrs Knowles (class teacher) 

Mrs Sexton and Mrs O'Reilly (TAs)


We have had a wonderful start to the term.

Our topic is the Olympics - focusing on both the Olympic and Paralympic games and the Ancient Greeks. 

We had great fun holding our own mini Olympics and trying out some different sports. 


In literacy, we have been looking at the book Africa Amazing Africa by Atinuke . 

We have written poems, emails, descriptions and a non-chronological report. You can see some of our work below. 

Below you can watch our New to Year 5 video.

This will give you all the information required for this year including topics, expectations and upcoming events.
