A huge hello and warm welcome to all in L5! We hope you and your family and friends, enjoy looking at what we have been learning in Year 5.

L5 is taught by Miss Allen and supported by the wonderful Mrs Hadley and Mrs Webster.


A few reminders...

Please make sure your child has their indoor PE kit for Wednesday and outdoor PE kit for Thursday morning (Mrs Thorpe).

Please remember Library is every Tuesday.

Homework is handed out on Wednesday and collected on Monday. Don’t forget Mr Lee leads a homework club on a Monday lunchtime and Miss Spratley leads a homework club on a Thursday lunchtime.

Autumn 1

Year 5 have enjoyed learning about Stargazers (Space and the Solar System).

The children worked collaboratively to create a spaceship which became part of the year 5 display on the Atrium steps. A big thank you to Mrs Hadley for working with the children and creating the masterpiece. We hope you have time to read the marvellous work all year 5 classes have contributed.


L5 landed with a crash, bump and a thud as they started this topic. The first writing concentrated on children designing their alien.


‘The flames died down and the smoke began to clear. There was a hiss of escaping gas as a hatchway door opened.’


Please click here to view examples of the children's aliens and descriptive writing as well as other memorable learning during this topic.




During October, Headfield celebrated ‘Black History Month’, L5 have been learning about a number of people who changed history. Some of these people included: Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama and Mary ‘Mother’ Seacole. During assemblies children listened carefully to these peoples’ stories and experiences and how their actions have led to the way we live our lives today.

Year 5 have been finding out about Nelson Mandela. After some discussions, role play, newspaper articles and video clips the children imagined they were Nelson. Please click here to view examples of their diary entries.



Autumn 2

Peasants, Princes & Pestilence

L5 are excited to be working with Miss Lucie this half-term to create a dance.
