Welcome to Year 5!
We are extremely excited to start our new learning journey this year. As a year group, we aim to start the year off with a bang, creating enthusiastic, motivated and engaged learners who possess a positive ethos throughout all areas of learning! As well as our class teachers we also have an amazing support team of LSAs who will help us pave the path to success.
Teachers: Mr Shipley, Mrs Mach and Mrs Gilligan.
LSAs: Mrs Storey, Miss Harris, Mrs Broyd, Mrs Brown and Mrs Hawkins.
Lead LSA: Mrs Lyons.
Please note: Year Five are currently split into three classes during the mornings for their English and Maths lessons. This will be for the remainder of the Summer term to prepare them for their transition into Year Six. Mrs Gilligan, an experienced teacher who has been working with a class of Year Six children during the mornings this year, takes one class of twenty every morning. We are thrilled to welcome her to the Year Five team!
Incredibox Music Creation
In Year 5 this week, we have been using an online music software to help us design our own themes for when we journey though our mysterious portal to Alchemy Island! The children were so enthused during the lesson today, that they asked for the site to be shared so they could continue their learning at home. We're glad you liked it!
The site is: https://www.incredibox.com/demo/

Year 5's New World Magical Extravaganza!
In preparation for the Year 5 performance on Thursday 20th June, please have a go at learning the following five songs:
- A Whole New World from Disney's Aladdin
- Magic by Pilot
- How Far I'll Go from Disney's Moana
- Double Trouble from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
We don't have long left to practice, so the more you do at home, the better! This practice will count as your Humanities homework until the 20th June. Please find all of the videos attached below.
Best of luck!
