Welcome to Year 5 - Blackthorn Class

Welcome to Year 5, known as Blackthorn Class.


In Blackthorn class, we are looking at some fascinating subjects this year, such as The Anglo-Saxons, Earth and Space, The Vikings and many more. We are also reading a wide variety of texts throughout the year.


Our class author is Anthony Horowitz and our classic text that we will be reading will be The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.


In Year 5, we have high expectations that pupils take responsibility for their attitude and effort towards learning, both in and out of school. We aim to be our best selves and to become more independent. Year 5 will be role models to younger students in the school and need to lead by example.

Year 5 is a challenging year, preparing the pupils for Year 6 and to then leave for secondary education. We aim to make learning fun for everyone, challenge ourselves and treat each other with respect.
