Year 5

What we’re up to in Year 5!

This half-term, we are entering the exciting world of The Tudors. Children will be learning all about the rise of Tudors and how it has impacted Britain as we know it today! They will be writing character descriptions, stories based on the characters in ‘treason’ and persuasive adverts based on Tudor houses.

This term will also see all year 5 children being taught English by Miss Bailey and maths being taught by Miss Norrie. Timetables will remain the same.


In art, the children will be studying portraits and how important they were in Tudor society. They will recreate and reproduce their own portrait based on those of Tudor times.

During our STEM based outcome, we will be recreating Tudor houses using different mediums. We will then use this for our literacy outcomes in writing persuasive adverts.

PE this half term will be centred on the principles of team games including basketball. Our PE days have changed and to Monday and Thursday. Please ensure your child has their kit as they will not be able to take part.

If you have any concerns, comments or suggestions, we would love to hear from you- Miss Bailey and Miss Norrie will be available at classroom doors at the end of each day.

Many Thanks,

Miss Bailey and Miss Norrie
