Southfield Junior School


Year 5 Classes

Our Year 5 classes are taught by Miss Little and Miss Miller.

The two classes are called Hazel and Elm.

During PPA each week, the children are taught by Mrs. Law.  They have specialist computing lessons in which they learn about, practice and apply different I.T. skills to complement in-class learning. The children also learn about e-safety.

 Term 3 Learning

Term 3 has been a little different to usual. It has seen us carry on our learning from home. This has not stopped year 5 from being inquisitive, enthusiastic learners, producing high quality work they should be very proud of. 

We have enjoyed reading a classic story from the Tudor times in Romeo and Juliet. The version we have chosen is written by Andrew Matthews and illustrated by Tony Ross.



Using the market scene as inspiration we had a go at describing our own scene.

Masquerade ball - Masks

We had a lot of fun creating masks to attend a masquerade ball.


Diary writing

We have written diary entries from the point of view of Romeo and Juliet at the point they find each others bodies.


DT - Tudor Houses

Year 5 have been looking into the structure and features of Tudor houses. They were tasked with sketching the buildings and annotating the features. 

This then led us to constructing our own versions!



Our science work has led us to researching reproduction in plants. We have produced diagrams to help explain the process.


Topic - Tudors

Our topic has led us to Henry VIII and his many wives. 

One student has created a family tree of Henry VIII and his wives with herself starring as each person. What an amazing idea!

We have also shown our research in an informative leaflet wonderfully produced and presented.

Term 1  Learning 

Please see the PowerPoint below for information about our Year 5 classes and to have a look at some of the learning that has been taking place. 

We have been learning about how the Romans transported water. Using their aqueducts as inspiration we had a go at creating our own versions!






The classes really enjoyed making their Christingles. We want to say a big thank you to St Michaels church for providing every child with their own kit. 

We have produced fantastic writing explaining why the Romans invaded the countries they did. Ask us for the reasons they invaded England!

In maths, we spent some time looking at the nets of shapes. Can you name the shapes we have made?

When the weather turns, it does not mean PE has to stop!
