Welcome to Year 5

You will also be able to access information about homework and any key dates from this page.
Year 5 visited Crowden Moor as part of their work for the John Muir award, They discovered which animals and plants thrive on our moorlands and in the bog areas.
As part of our geography work in year 5, we have been studying the environmental impact of the moorland fires. We went on a local area walk with John (Tameside countryside and green spaces warden) to have a closer look at the damage and to take part in a project to help restore the moorlands. We collected lots of acorns to bring back to school and plant. We are hoping that we can successfully grow these acorns into saplings that can then be used as part of the replanting of the moorland.
Year 5 have written some of their own Ancient Greek Myths.
King Alfred is the only English monarch to have been given the title 'the Great'.
Year 5 completed a drama role play activity. Each person took on a different role as an eye witness and prepared questions to ask as part of a debate. The class had to reach a verdict about whether King Alfred deserved his title 'the Great'.
World Book Day 📚
On World Book Day, Year 5 came dressed as a character from their favourite book or as character from one of the books written by our focus author- David Walliams. Take a look at the photos of our fabulous costumes!
As a school, we have entered a competition as part of an anti racism project. Year 5 were asked to write or perform a song. James, Rufus, Lewis and Heath did a super job. They worked together, for their spring term collaboration homework, to write this song and performed it for the class.
