Our teachers are Mr Ball and Miss Bell

This term in Year 5, our topic is Victorians. We started off our topic with a fantastic visit to Beamish; experiencing life as a Victorian school child as well as exploring late Victorian buildings and businesses within the museums town.

In English, we are reading Street Child by Berlie Doherty – we will be producing different pieces of writing based on the text and developing cross curricular links to topic.

We encourage children to read independently to an adult every night. This can be their school book or a book of choice. Please see the class teacher for more information.
