Welcome to Year 5

Year 5 is an exciting year at St Peter’s. This year the children take on additional responsibilities as play leaders supporting our younger infant children at lunchtime. We enjoy a great residential at Robinwood building our relationships and pushing ourselves out of our comfort zone in amazing challenges. We take the next step in our academic work developing our knowledge and understanding across a wide range of subjects in exciting ways and making links through all that we do.

World Book Day

Year 5 have enjoyed sharing their own books at home and have discussed the importance of sharing stories. We have shared stories with Year 1 and taken part in a whole school ‘comfy read’. In class, we have also written our own stories and designed a National Book Token.


Our topic for Science is ‘Music Festival Materials’. We have planned and carried out an investigation into looking at the suitability of different materials to be used as a food preparation area.
