About Us

Miss Aitken is the teacher in Year 5. Everyday we start our mornings with maths, writing and reading. In the afternoons we also enjoy History, Geography, Art, Computing, PE, RE and PSHE throughout the half term. Science is usually taught as ‘Science Week’ each half term and children complete 3 DT projects a year to promote and encourage an interest in Science and Design Technology. Each half term we focus on a different text that is taught through lots of fun drama activities, IT and practical games. Year 5 also visits Life Leisure Grand Central for swimming lessons each week.

This year our focus texts are:

Autumn 1 - I am Henry Finch (South America)

Autumn 2 - Icarus (Ancient Greece)

Spring 1 - The Conquerors (Anglo Saxons)

Spring 2 - Beowulf (Vikings)

Summer 1 - The Unforgotten Coat (Post 1066 study: Migration over time)

Summer 2 - The Witch of the White Sands (Post 1066 study: Migration over time continued)
