Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 at Horncastle Primary School. We have three classes: 5F, 5S and 5SP. Our teachers are Miss Fox, Mrs Scarboro, Mrs Shaw and Mrs Price. We are supported by Mrs Spooner, Ms Pavey, Mrs Cairns and Mrs Lawson.

In Year 5, we cover a range of projects, which change each term. Our projects include ‘Hola Mexico’, ‘The Mysterious Maya’, ‘Out of this World’, ‘Top Secret’, ‘Battles from the Air’ and ‘Circle of Life’. Our projects are based on geography, history, art, DT and some of the science curriculum. Alongside these, we also teach various subjects including music, French, science, RE, ICT, PSHE and PE. We aim to make the learning as varied as possible through theme days, such as ‘The Day of the Dead’ and local area studies within our WW2 project.

Within the classroom and during assemblies, we discuss and work on the five British values and our school values, particularly respect and kindness. We celebrate achievements with points, postcards and star of the week certificates.

Year 5 is the first year of Upper Key Stage 2 and, as such, we try to foster growing independence and responsibility in preparation for Year 6 and beyond. This creates opportunities for different responsibilities such as our junior online safety officers (JOSO’s), school council representatives and Playground Pals.
