Denby Dale First & Nursery School

Welcome to Year 5

We have had a fantastic first term in Year 5. All the children have settled back into school life and we have learnt lots of fun and interesting things. 
Our topic on Space was a great success and the children know lots about the planets, Orbits and the NASA shuttle programme. 
In literacy, the children loved creating their own poems and playscripts. We especially loved Macbeth with all its gore and hidden meanings. 

Many of the children have continued their learning at home and have created some fantastic presentations about space. Below is just one example of the fantastic science work happening at home. 

Our Exciting Curriculum! 

We have lots of exciting things planned for the Spring term. These include:

  • The Vikings and Anglo Saxons
  • Materials in Science
  • Coding our own game in computing using Scratch.
  • In Art, we will be looking at the Lindisfarne Gospels. 

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we were unable to produce a show for parents and carers to watch in the hall this year. However, we did take part in a whole school production. Year 5 were given 2 songs to perform and we did amazingly well. 

You can view the production by logging in with your child's Teams details at:

Well done to everybody involved. 

TT Rockstars - we are encouraged to complete our challenges at least once a week, to help improve the speed and accuracy of our times tables.
