Welcome To

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

The children will be delighted to know that Mr Bavington and Mr Matthews will be teaching Year 5 this year. We are both thrilled to be working in a fabulous year group and we cannot wait to support the children as they continue their learning journey through school.

Teaming up with these exceedingly fortunate teachers, our support staff will be Mr Redmill and Miss Ahmed.

Make sure you are following us on Twitter @Y5BMStradbroke and @Y5BStradbroke to find out about our learning and all that we’re getting up to.

An important reminder:
Y5’s PE day is on Monday afternoon, so please make sure you have your PE kits. The children must then take home their PE kits, ready for the next week’s session. Many thanks.

Autumn Term


This term, Year 5 will be travelling back in time to explore the Victorian Era. They will learn about the types of living conditions, the effects of industrialisation and the British Empire’s desire to amass a multitude of natural resources.

The children will also have the opportunity to visit Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet to study the transition of the British empire through industrialisation in the Victorian Era. This will be one of our #moments.

As Geographers, the children are going to analyse physical and human features prevalent in both Sheffield and South America. They will also determine the push and pull factors which influence migration between rural and urban settings. In Science, the children are going to examine properties and changes of materials, by conducting a variety of immersive investigations and comparative fair tests.
