Welcome to Year 5!

There is a big change for the children this year as they finally get to head up stairs! On their learning journey in Year 5, they will experience a range of rewarding opportunities such as visits to Beamish Museum and Broom House Farm. Children also get to extend their sporting experiences by taking part in the Ashbrooke Cricket Festival, working with the Newcastle Eagles and learning all about bike safety through the ‘Bikeability’ course as well as having swimming lessons at Southmoor Academy.

In addition to the new challenges in English and maths, children will be studying the Victorians, in particular allowing them to take pride in their local community and gain an understanding of their heritage; this will include learning about the local mining and shipbuilding industries.
