Welcome to the Year 5 area!
Here, you will find plenty of information about Year 5, including our curriculum; details of trips and visits, assemblies and performances; write-ups following visitors to our classes; examples of children's learning and lots of photographs and other useful and interesting links!
We are really looking forward to the year ahead, and know your child is going to have experiences in Year 5!

Keeping children safe in school is the most important role we play. If you have any serious concerns about any child, please speak to Mrs Walpole or Mrs Stoddern.
We are incredibly mature in year 5 and have been thinking about the responsibilities that we all have, for ourselves and toward others. We wrote down our own responsibilities and considered how, from our great examples, we might inspire others!
The fieldwork element of our geography curriculum this term has been to produce a sketch map of our local area, using contour lines. What better way to do this than to hike up Carn Brea and survey the land for ourselves? We produced these stunning sketch maps to show our understanding, and of course helped and supported each other with a tricky climb along the way!
Year 5 have been researching the gestation periods of different mammals. The children beautifully presented their data in the form of a bar graph to help them formulate conclusions.
Year 5 are planning a locally-sourced, seasonal vegetable soup. We’ve been identifying vegetables that are harvested in Cornwall in November and have made some fantastic posters. We can’t wait to turnip up the heat and brussel up some tasty soup! Pars(nip) the salt and pepper.
In science, 5D dissected flowering plants to discover how they reproduce.
To help with our learning about life-cycles we have observed chicks hatching from eggs. The children have been so excited and have loved having the opportunity to look after them.
Year 5 are really enjoying writing our narratives based on Shaun Tan’s The Lost Thing. Here are a selection; I’m sure you’ll agree that we’ve been working super hard on our handwriting too!
In year 5, the children have been dazzling us with their sketching and shading skills to represent light and dark. This is Bella’s from 5D. Look at the way she has created dark areas and shadow by increasing the pressure on her pencil. Great work Bella!
