Primary School

Year 5

Welcome to Bartholomew, Guilford, Hamilton and Melbourne!


Our current topic is 'Ancient China' and we will be reading and discussing the book 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' in our English lessons.


Key concepts such as tolerance, equality, conservation, social responsibility and respect are built into everything we learn.


In Year 5, our children hone their critical thinking skills through topic work and use of outstanding literature.

Passport Points

It was lovely to see so many children had gained the Year 4 badges and were wearing them on their jumpers coming up to Year 5.  Badges are earned by following our School Aims and our Keys to Success.


PE is every Monday across Year 5. Children should bring their PE kit in a bag. Earrings and other jewellery should not be worn on that day. Year 5 classes will be swimming in turn, your child will bring home more information when it is their class's turn.
