ST PAUL'S YEAR 5Welcome to year 5


WE'RE AIMING TO EASE INTO YEAR 5 BYFocusing on key skills in Maths and English

Whist we have lots of exciting things planned, we are also under no illusion about the impact that Covid-19 will undoubtedly have had on all of our children and families. With this in mind, we will be aiming to ease the transition into year 5 by initially focusing on key skills in Maths and English and teaching material that was not covered from the Year 4 curriculum, before building on that knowledge with the Year 5 curriculum.

After such a long absence from school, we will also spend a lot of time re-establishing daily routines and covering lots of PSHE to allow the children time to discuss and process the mixture of feelings they may have and to help them re-adjust back into school life so that they are ready to continue their learning journey.

We will focus on various PSHE areas such as how to rebuild and maintain friendships
we will be learning all about the different mountain ranges of the world
We will be focusing on how sound is made and how it travels

YEAR 5Autumn term

Our first exciting topic for the Autumn term is: “What if there were no rainforests?” This is primarily a geography based unit of work in which the children will locate these important ecosystems on maps, learn about their key physical characteristics, analyse how they impact our planet and how we, as humans, are impacting them, including the people and animals who reside in them. In Science, our topic is: “Living things and their habitats.” In this topic, we will look at and compare the life cycles of a variety of living creatures.

In order to give our children a broad and balanced curriculum, we will also cover French, Art, DT, Music, RE, PE and Computing, either within our topics as part of a creative curriculum or as stand-alone subjects.

We are really looking forward to getting to know your children and hope you and your children are feeling as excited as we are to return in September.

YEAR 5Topic Overviews

WELLBEINGChildren's Mental Health Week

Now more than ever we need to be looking after our mental health! 1st -7th February was Children's Mental Health Week. We got involved to mark the occasion and to raise money for the charity Place2Be who focus on improving children's mental health.

The theme of this year's Children’s Mental Health Week was Express Yourself.
Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.

Check out how we have expressed ourselves this week!
