Welcome to Year 5!


This is the place where you will find out about what we have been up to in class, information about work and routines and also pictures of our fab pupils learning.


The page should contain all of the information you should need throughout the year and includes a box where you can contact school if you have any questions. We hope you enjoy looking through and seeing what your children have been up to and also

Week beginning 07/06/21

We hope you had a fabulous half term and are ready for the final few weeks of Year 5! If you are not able to join us in school this week then all of the work you need is in the Home Learning section below. Just click on the rainbow icon titled ‘Home Schooling (if required) and then the pencils for each day of the week. We will be doing the same tasks on the same days in school so we will all be at the same point when you return. Work towards the end of the week will be posted nearer the time depending on how we are getting on in class so don’t worry if there are some subjects missing at the moment - they will be there by the time you need them.


As always if anything is not clear or you have any questions then please don’t hesitate to contact me at and I will get back to you as soon as I am able.


Thank you

A few things we’ve been up to this term

Well done to all our pupils and families for their fab efforts as we celebrated World Book Day. It was great to hear the children talking about their heroes and why they were important to them.

Some of the things we have accomplished at home and in school!

Our food donation for Burnley in the Community so far. Thank you to all of our families!

Year 5 were so happy and grateful to receive brand new bible from Mount Zion and St John’s Church. Check out Kayla and Emily’s amazing watercolour pictures of the 2 churches which we have sent as a thank you from the whole class. We think they’re amazing!

UK Parliament Week

In October we took part in UK parliament week. We learned what Parliament is, all about the House of Commons and even got the chance to ask write and ask some questions to our local MP Anthony Higinbotham with Year 6 who joined us for an online Q & A session. We were extremely proud of some of the brilliant questions which the children asked and I know some parents got involved and helped with so me questions too which was brilliant! Anthony didn’t get an easy ride. Some of the questions he was asked included:


Do you agree with Boris Johnson that children should not receive free school meals in half term?

What have you done to help the people of Burnley?

How will you help create more jobs and opportunities for the people of Burnley?

Why is your government spending £100,000,000 on a railway line instead of protecting the environment?

How are you helping the poorer people of Burnley and what can we do at school to help?

Do you think that politics should be taught in school as part of the curriculum so that when children are old enough to vote we will actually know what we are voting for?


These are just a small selection of questions asked by Years 5 & 6 and Anthony answered every one. We are grateful for his time and look forward to him joining us in school when we are able to to ask him some more questions!
