Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome to Year 5 at Newhall Junior School.  We are delighted to see all of the children back in school and eager to learn. We look forward to working with them and helping them to have a successful year.


The Year 5 team is made up of Miss Swain (5S), Miss Moore (5M) and Mr Roper (5R) and we are supported in class by Mrs Watson, Miss Guest and Mrs Marsh. We are always happy to hear from parents about their child's learning and we are always here to help.

This term our Learning Journey topics are Were the Mayans Really That Bad? (History) and The Force Is With Us (Science). We will also be covering E-Safety and Digital Literacy in Computing and in RE we will be studying Sikhism. In our core subjects, we will be working hard to cover both the Year 5 curriculum and ‘catch up’ on some of the content missed due to the pandemic. During Maths we will be working on Place Value, Addition, Subtraction and Statistics, whilst in English we will be looking at some ‘nonsense’ poetry as well as fiction and non-fiction linked to our Mayans topic.


In Year 5, we are looking forward to moving our learning forward by aiming for the stars!

Have a look at our Knowledge Organisers for this term to find out what we're learning about in more detail.
