Welcome to Year 5

Teachers: Miss Partridge and Miss O’Carroll

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Press, Mrs Tonkin and Mrs Tickle


Our topic this spring: Ocean Adaptations


Following on from our work with the Ocean Connections project, Year 5 are going to immerse themselves in ocean learning. The children will explore multiple texts related to the ocean including both fiction and non-fiction.


The children will also have a fantastic opportunity to learn creatively as their questions will inform the learning that we explore. Later in the project, they will also have the opportunity to explore new technology including VR headsets.


Other opportunities this term:


National Marine Aquarium – STEM Boat Building project

We are also taking part in a research project with Bath Spa University which will enable us to purchase more science resources for our school.
