Mr Walsh’s Class


Welcome to Year 5, where we explore the mysterious and explosive world of Alchemy Island; become intrepid astronauts soaring through space; terrifying Tudors where execution and lavish feasts go hand in hand on a daily basis and take a trip back 5000 years to the land of Gods and pyramids during Ancient Egypt. In group 14 we have a fantastic group of staff who are enthusiastic and passionate about developing the very best out of every individual. We are led by Mr Walsh (Culture vulture and the school foodie), with wonderful support from Mrs Holden (Harry Potter expert and comprehension master) and Mrs Beard (Mrs Titchmarsh and mathematical genius). As a collective our aim is to boost the potential for everyone, in every subject, no matter where the starting point. Our curriculum is designed to allow all to flourish from critical reading in English and investigative research in History to imaginative creativity in Art and detailed investigative work in Science.

However, this is only the very surface of what is a wonderful curriculum in Year 5. Every week we have a specialist teacher visit our class in French. Whilst during the spring term, we participate in a residential trip to Hinning House, a retreat in the Lake District where independence and geographical skills can be honed.

To find out what amazing work is currently happening in Year 5, take a look at our blog page.
