Year 5 2022-23

On our class page, you will find information about all aspects of our learning, including curriculum coverage, P.E days, homework, spellings and useful website links. Please check regularly for any special events, changes and reminders.


In Spring 2, our theme is 'Wetherby and beyond,' a local history study focusing on the Victorian era. We will explore continuity and change in Wetherby and Leeds and make comparisons to our town and city in 2023.

Our class book, Street Child, is set in the Victorian times.

In DT, another historical link will be our design, creation and evaluation of Punch & Judy puppets.
