Welcome to Year 5!

The children will be delighted to know that Mr Bavington and Miss Johnson will be teaching Year 5 in 2023-24. We are both thrilled to be working in this fabulous year group and we look forward to supporting the children as they continue their learning through school. 

In addition, our support staff will be: Miss Ahmed, Mr Hammond and Mrs Hawkes (cover for Mr Bavington).

An important reminder: 

Y5’s PE day is on Thursday, so please make sure the children have their kit on this day. The children should then take their PE kits home 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. 

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. As artists, the children will study and explore Renaissance painting.
