Welcome to Year 5!

Spring 2020 


This year our team is...

Mr Western (class teacher)

Mrs Chapman (Teaching Assistant)

Mrs Stephenson ( Teaching Assistant)




This half term we are working on: -

Light and Electricity 


This half term we have a Science focus. 

We will be focussing on: 


  • Recognising that light appears to travel in straight lines.
  • Using the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain that objects are seen because they give out or reflect light into the eye.
  • Explaining that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes.
  • Using the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain why shadows have the same shape as the objects that cast them.



  • Associating the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer with the number and voltage of cells used in the circuit.
  • Comparing and giving reasons for variations in how components function, including the brightness of bulbs, the loudness of buzzers and the on/off position of switches.
  • Using recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram.


You can get in touch with us in the usual ways such as phoning the school office, sending a Dojo or  popping in before and after school.


Many thanks

 Mr Western
