Year 5 2023 - 2024

Mrs Hancock

Welcome to 5H!


Year 5 is an exciting year where, having reached the upper stage of juniors, developing as confident, independent individuals and responsible citizens become a real focus for the children whilst exploring opportunities beyond the classroom and indeed, primary school. For example, in school, modelling expectations for the younger years is even more important especially in their role as Year 1 buddies. Outside of Belgrave, there will be several chances throughout the year to visit and find out more about what goes on in our local high schools.

We've got some really diverse and interesting topics such as Space, Shakespeare, Rivers and the Greeks (to name just a few) that will provide us with a platform for developing our English and maths skills at the same time as broadening our knowledge and understanding of the wider world. Click on the tab above: 'Year Five Curriculum' to see the specifics of what the year involves.

In the first half of the spring term, we will enjoy the benefits of outdoor learning through Forest Schools and just before the summer half term, we will be going to the Conwy Centre on Anglesey for two fun packed days of outdoor pursuits. More information will follow nearer the time, as will details about when it's our turn for swimming lessons.

If you wish your child to walk home alone, please send in a letter (or email) stating your permission and, if you require them to leave a mobile phone in school for use after school, please see the office to obtain the permission paperwork.

There is a huge amount of information here on the website about what we do in year five and to let you know how you can support at home. There's also our Class Dojo for daily/ weekly updates and you can check the gallery below too to see some of what we have done this year.


Kind regards,

Mrs Hancock
