Woodheys Primary School

Together Everyone Achieves More


Welcome to Year 5


Year 5 - where effort will always bring reward

 The upper key stage journey begins in Y5 where our school citizens are developed into motivated learners able to take charge of their learning environment


Thoughout the learning, the core subjects of Mathematics, English and ICT link in to all the other areas.

Science, Humanities teach us about our world, while the Artsmark Gold principles underpin the creative subjects of Art, Music and Drama.

New languages, new perspectives and new physical achievments all add to the unique educational experiences in our multi sensory classroom.


We really hope these few pages will give you a whistle-stop tour of our fantastic work and we look forward to working together for the rest of the year.


Best wishes from all in Y5



Mr Byrnes
