Year 5


Welcome to the Year 5 page! A warm welcome back to all Year 5 children and parents.

This year, we will be: making a difference in the world, becoming masters of our learning, digging deeper into the mysteries of the world around us and discovering more about ourselves and those around us!


Our theme for the Autumn term is…..



We will be delving into the ‘terrible Tudors’ era and immersing ourselves in historical literature and knowledge.

I LOVE the Tudors and I’m really excited to learn even more, so Year 5 – what can you teach me about our topic? Research your own information and present this in any way you like… Powerpoint presentation, poster, even a YouTube video. I can’t wait to see what you can create!

How are you going to make the best start in Year 5?

Let’s make this a term to remember!

  1. But the summer term is the last term! I’ll really miss Miss Cotter! But this is the last term, we have to make the best out of it with Miss Cotter! WE CAN DO THIS!

    • She is the best teacher ever. She helps children if they struggle,encourages pupils to become more interactive with the world, is an inspiration to us all, can feel from the pupils’ point-of-view, sorts out any troubles, gives us prizes: I could go on forever…

      • I really do agree with you Methmi! Miss Cotter will always be PHENOMENAL! She will always be in the memory of our minds of our class!

  2. Miss Cotter, the quote you put above:”This is my year” means a lot to me. This year, in Year 5, I feel like I have accomplished more achievements than ever before. I feel like you have inspired me to make this year the best I can before going into Year 6, where I will have to work very hard.

    • So, thank you for all you have done for me, whether I liked it or not, because you did it to make good. Thank you for being a good friend and teacher.

  3. I am having so much fun in year 5 , I am really enjoying our science lesson : we are testing egg shells in different liquids which are coke, black current ,bitter lemon, water ,orange juice and tea. The grossest one is tea because it is mouldy a spotty .Miss Cotter is the best teacher ever!
