Year 5

Online Learning For Pupils 

This term’s learning journey is based on ‘Cosmic’, a novel by Frank Cottrell Boyce. We are providing all parents and children with resources to help them with home learning. Below are activity sheets for Y5 students and a timetable which you might find helpful. For guided reading every afternoon, we would like children to start reading the novel ‘Cosmic’.  We have uploaded a PDF copy of the book. The link to this is in the English ‘tab’  below. Most of the learning this term is related directly to the story ‘Cosmic’, so please try to read as much of this as possible. 

As we are nearing the end of the academic year, it would be really helpful if you child filled in and answered our questionnaire > Please email responses to either Mr Maestro or Miss Crofton.

In the Spring term our learning journey will be based on “We’ll Meet Again”.

This will involve science, geography and history.


This term’s LEARNING JOURNEY, “We’ll Meet Again”, is based on World War Two. 

We have a number of exciting, WW2-related events planned for the children this term.  These include a local history walk, a visit to Downs Juniors to see their air raid shelter, an ‘evacuation’, opportunities to ask questions of those who experienced the war as a child, a visit to the Imperial War Museum in London, and a ‘VE’ Day street party!  The local history walks will take place during the school day next Monday (Rowan) and next Wednesday (Redwood); there will be no cost involved.  More information will be provided about the other events closer to the time.  Please note that we’re expecting the overall cost of these six events to be around £18.

Please don’t hesitate to come and speak to us in person if you require any further information about the curriculum.
