Spring Term

Welcome to Class 5S and 5B!


Here are our Spring 1 newsletters which gives you an insight into what we are learning about


In Literacy, we are reading Pax by Sara Pennypacker. It is 'a heart-wrenching mastrerpiece' (The Guardian) which follows the journey of a boy and his pet fox as they attempt to find each other again after being separated.

We have already studied the red fox, looked at character traits and written letters from the perspective of the main characters. Future work will include diary extracts, debates, propaganda posters and writing the next chapters.


Forest School

Forest school sessions are on Wednesdays for 5B and Thursdays for 5S for the next two weeks (23rd/24th, 30th/31st)

Pupils should bring appropriate footwear and clothing to be outdoors during these sessions.


The Force is Strong with Year 5 this term as we discover the uses of forces and how they help (and hinder) us in our everyday lives. Sessions will be mainly practical including investigations of air resistance, magnetic pull and  water resistance.

Useful Sites


This term 5S will have swimming lessons on Tuesdays until Easter (Congratulations to 5B for their superb progress in swimming in the Autumn term).


Our Topic: Mountains and Volcanoes

Our main topic is focusing on the local area: we will be looking at changes over time and how things are being developed that will take Mytholmroyd into the future.

Learning will take place through walks, map-work, sketches and old photographs.
