Year 5

Teacher: Mrs Hannick
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Carson
In Year 5, we are becoming aware of our own strengths and interests and areas of development. Mrs Hannick encourages us to ‘give it a go’ even if we don’t succeed. This will help us to become more confident learners and not fear failure. As long as we have tried our best, the ethos of the class is that we will get there in the end.

In our class, we are encouraged to be independent and creative in our learning and to think for ourselves and not to always rely on others.

To find out more about our class and what activities we have been undertaking on a daily basis, then please take a look at the details below. This page will be regularly updated with new material, so please keep checking back for new information.

STOPs Obesity Programme

On Thursday afternoon for the next 9 weeks, Year 5 will be taking part in the STOPs Obesity Programme. The programme is a mix of exercise and nutrition lessons. The children in the class will need their P.E. kits to participate in this lesson.


Year 5 have settled well into their new class and are enjoying going swimming on a Monday afternoon.

Greek Costume Day

Year 5 continued the Greek theme for their topic with a 'Come to School Dressed as a Greek'.

Being the imaginative bunch that they are, they came in quite impressive costumes.

We tried not to make contact with a few of them, which you will understand why from the photos.

Class Assembly

It's All Greek to Me!!

Year 5, in my opinion, held the best class assembly that Orchard Primary has seen.

They have been learning about Greece, their Gods and The Olympics.

If you didn't know much about Greece you would have left the assembly with lots of knowledge.

Watch the video to see how fabulous they all are.
