Year 5 - Ospreys & Owls

Welcome to Year 5!



In Year 5 this year, our teaching team consists of Miss Brookshaw and Mrs Welch in Ospreys and Mr Inker in Owls.

The children will be immersing themselves within our new GLF topics of:

  1. All volcanic eruptions are equal: Support or Challenge?

  2. How have Ancient Egyptians impacted on how we live today?

  3. Light - Design and construct a product which allows you to look over/around something without moving.

  4. Create Greek inspired clay pots constructed to represent one of the areas of Ancient Greek achievement.

  5. Children will design and bake their own cakes, adapting a basic recipe to use ingredients of their choice.

  6. A recording of children performing a piece of music inspired by the festival Día de los Muertos- Central American Day of the Dead. An art gallery honouring each child’s culture and ancestors inspired by Central American artists/artwork.

Spelling Test is Monday. The children will be given 10 spellings every week to learn and will then be tested on these 10. 

P.E day is Friday, children need to come to school in their full PE kit..

For all other class information please see Class Briefing link below.

Finally, we would like to thank you for the continued support you give as parents to our Year 5 children and Salfords Primary School. Our pupils try to show as many school values as possible on a daily basis because they aspire to be great role models for the other children!

If you ever have any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact either class teacher.

Thank you and 'Be your best'!
