Year 5




We are looking forward to a fantastic term full of hard work, fun, creativity and hand washing! This term our learning journey is based around Shackleton’s expedition to Antarctica on board the ‘Endurance’ in 1914.  We would be delighted if children are keen to find out more at home about what we have learnt (e.g. global warming, wildlife, other polar expeditions), but please remind your child NOT to research what happened on Shackleton’s Endurance expedition – even though it is an amazing story, knowing the ending might somewhat spoil much of the learning. Please see below our topic web for this term.




Please note the topic web only provides an outline of the intended learning as we are deliberately choosing not to reveal everything to the children at the beginning of our new learning journey.

Class Dojo

Please ensure that you have your student log-in for class dojo. In the event of self-isolating or an entire bubble’s isolation it is the expectation that pupils will continue to complete work at home to minimise the impact of COVID and loss of learning. (If you do not have your log-in please contact the school office).


Swimming is on Thursdays – children need to be at school for 8:50am.

Rowan class swim during the first half of each term, and Redwood then swim after every half-term break.

Indoor PE for both classes takes place on Mondays.

Outdoor PE (for the non-swimming class) is on Thursdays.

Please help us by ensuring that your child has their swimming and PE kit on the appropriate days.
