year 5 St Lucia


Welcome to our Year 5 page. Here you will find out about all of our latest news, photos, curriculum letters, trips and Assemblies.

In year five we have two fantastic classes, Lavender and Hummingbird, these are our class logos that are on our front door to the classrooms.

These two classes are taken care by two amazing teachers; Miss Green who is class teacher of Lavender and is also Leader for Maths, and Hummingbird class teacher is Mr Barnard.

The topic this half term is fantastical beasts with a focus on the book and film of Harry Potter. The children will be learning about the main characters and settings of the book and imagining our own. We will also have History Week during this term, during which we will be focussing on the Norman invasion of 1066.




This year we as a year group have been very busy  taking part in all different kinds of fun activities here is a slideshow of the things so far.

On Thursday 11th May 2017, the children in Year 5 participated in a theatre workshop, run by the Fresh Water Theatre Company. It was all about St Lucia – which ties in with our current topic of the Caribbean! The children imagined that they were on a magical journey to the exotic island of St Lucia, and visited many different places including beaches, banana plantations and the rainforest. They took part in role plays, small educational activities and even a traditional Caribbean limbo dance! They all had an enjoyable experience and learnt many new, interesting facts which they will use in the rest of their topic work.


Over the last term we learned all about the Vikings and Saxons. This culminated in a Viking day where we all came in dressed as Vikings. We created helmets, clay Runes, Viking boats, brooches, did some weaving and dressed up like Vikings. Phew – what a busy and fun day that was!

Our Assembly was on The Titanic- We performed an assembly linked to our previous topic of the Titanic. We investigated who really was to blame for the disaster and what we have learned as a result. 

As spring has sprung we have been spending lots of time outdoors tending to our garden beds. We have planted a variety of fruit and vegetables, including; tomatoes, peas, strawberries, carrots and radishes. We love the strawberries but were a bit unsure about the radishes!
