Goals for the Year

Year 5 is an exciting year where children receive their pen licence and meet their ‘buddy’ in Nursery class. The children really benefit from the time spent with our youngest members of the Blue School and spend a lovely time reading to them in various corners of the Nursery. We like to focus on a positive growth mindset and we enjoy using our zones of regulation to display how we are feeling each day. We are keen to learn from others and explore how we can improve our own understanding. We enjoy an enriching and engaging curriculum that provides us with opportunities to investigate current affairs and to learn about inspirational people. In Ash class, we believe in everyone having equal opportunities and be the best they can be. With that in mind, we believe that kindness, forgiveness and empathy come first, and a smile or compliment can make someone’s day.

Curriculum Statement

We read fantastic books such as: Cosmic by Frank Cottrell-Boyce, Street Child by Berlie Doherty, along with poetry by Joseph Coelho. We will also be studying some interesting topics, including Slums, Earth and Space, the Kingdom of Benin, we are Game Developers, Properties and Changes to Materials, we are Cryptographers, Jesus’ miracles and Sikhism. In addition, we have French and Music lessons each week taught by our specialist teacher – Miss Cowley, we take part in a Daily Mile and receive PE lessons from specialist sports coaches to keep us physically active.


We have already been engaged in our PSHE topics of Being Me in My World and Celebrating Difference and have fully participated in Black History Month and Remembrance Day. This term, we are focusing on our Dreams and Goals topic, finding out about different jobs, the contributions we can make as citizens and how we can value the contributions of others. We are learning to be aware of our own well-being. In an ever-changing and challenging world, we focus on the importance of physical and mental health, adopting a range of techniques to ensure we learn and reach our full potential. Our Zones of Regulation interactive display enables us to acknowledge our feelings each day, and we can utilise a Worry Box to share how we are feeling more privately. We like to review our gratitude for the days we’ve had through our class log.

Workshops & Trips

For Black History Month (October and November) we will learn about the artist Sonia Boyce and the children will produce their own piece of art representing her specific style. In the spring term in Religious Education the children will learn about the Sikhism Religion and will visit our local Gurdwara in Hounslow. We also have the opportunity to go on a residential trip to Lincolnsfield where we experience what it was like to live during WW2. This will be after the Easter break – the week beginning the 15th April 2024. During the summer term, we hope to visit Painshill Park in Cobham, Surrey. While at the park the children will go on a mini-beast hunt and experience the orienteering course around the wonderful park. This will support our science topic of Living Things, where we study the flora and fauna.

Take a look at this!

Year 5 is an exciting year, we will see ourselves and our classmates developing in confidence, becoming more independent and resourceful. We are loving our ‘Spotify Friday’ ‘Daily Wordle’ and being in a class that constantly inspires growth and personal success. We look forward to continuing this year, seeing the children flourish and creating some beautiful memories.
