Year 5

Welcome to year 5

The year 5 team for 2023/24 consists of Mrs Nagra, Miss Brookes,

Mrs Billa-Patel, Mrs McGrevey and Miss Gospel.


For this term, the children need to come to school in their PE kits on Thursdays and Fridays.


Homework is set every Thursday and should be returned to school by the following Thursday.


This term, year 5's exciting journey through history continues as we explore the Wars of the Roses! This fascinating period, filled with brave knights, epic battles, and powerful kings, took place in England over 500 years ago.


In our studies, we'll learn about the two rival families, the House of Lancaster and the House of York, who fought for the throne of England. We'll discover how their symbols, the red rose and the white rose, gave this series of battles its famous name.


Our lessons will bring history to life with stories of heroic figures, dramatic battles like the Battle of Towton, and the ultimate victory of Henry Tudor at the Battle of Bosworth Field. We'll also find out how Henry's marriage to Elizabeth of York ended the wars and started a new era of peace and prosperity under the Tudor dynasty.


Join us as we delve into this captivating chapter of English history, filled with adventure and intrigue, and learn how the Wars of the Roses shaped the future of our nation!
