Achieving Excellence Together

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 Classes

Potter and Tolkien



Welcome to Year 5 Classes:

  • Potter with Mr Baranyai and Mrs Waddington.
  • Tolkien with Miss Bellerby and Mrs Savva.


In the Autumn term, Year 5 children learning all about the Vikings and we explore the different ways they travelled, lived, fought and told stories. We visit Jorvik Viking Centre in York, to get first-hand experience about how Vikings lived.


During the Spring term, we focus on learning about South America. We study the different countries, compare cities with Harrogate, and look at the diversity of habitats and key landmarks. 


In the Summer Term we cover space in science whereby we learn all about the planets. We introduce the children to the Mayans where we will study their culture, activities and day to day life.


We always work hard to build on the school values through our '5 R's' - please ask one of our class members what they are and how we demonstrate them from day to day. We develop these in year 5 in order to prepare them for Year 6 and further education, as well as supporting them to become well rounded members of society.
