Year 5

Dear Parents/Carers & Children,

Welcome to Year 5!

Please keep checking this page, as we will continue to update the site with key information and photos. Please email us on  if you have questions. 

All our very best,

Miss Torrance, Miss Beddow, Mrs Bonser and Mrs Cutteridge

Happy New Year to All Y5 Families! Hope you have all had a happy and healthy start to the New Year. We are raring to go in 2022 in Year 5! We would also like to say a MASSIVE thank you for all the generous and thoughtful gifts for Christmas. Each and every one was so loved and appreciated.

PE Days:

Apologies for the confusion!

These are the revised PE days for the Spring term:

Hawking: Monday (indoor) and Thursday (outdoor)

Newton: Monday (indoor) Thursday (outdoor) and Friday (swimming - please could children wear their PE kit to school and remember to bring their swimming kit in a bag)

Hubble: Monday (indoor) and Thursday (outdoor)

Year 5 have been creating sculptures using clay today in their art lesson. They thoroughly enjoyed creating chess pieces inspired by Lewis Chessmen from Viking times!

Five Newton are REALLY enjoying their Friday swimming sessions. Keep up the fantastic strokes Y5!

Year 5 are lucky enough to have a fabulous specialist dance teacher on Monday's this half term and they thoroughly enjoyed their first session!

Year 5 have worked hard and had great fun creating some fabulous Christmas crafts today! Excellent teamwork was shown as the children helped each other to complete their Christmas hat decorations!

What a fabulous Christmas party - filled with fun, laughter, dancing and treats!

Y5 met Olympian and 3rd most capped England rugby star, Katy Daley-McClean today!

In computing lessons this week, Year 5 are using '2Calculate' on Purple Mash to learn all about spreadsheets. They have practiced inputting data and creating formulas to help them plan an imaginary party for their friends!

Who was the best Anglo Saxon King? Year 5 had great fun deciding who they believed was the best king, made a poster explaining why and used their excellent speaking and listening skills during a class debate! Some children were so persuasive, they changed others' opinions before a final vote!

Author/book recommendations - the children had a discussion about some of their favourite authors and why they like them. I thought this may be useful to share as it may inspire other children to try out some new authors!

Welcome to the SPS History Channel! Here are Hubble's short documentaries about the Viking invasion. Sit back, relax and enjoy!

Year 5 have been having an amazing time becoming historians! They have been using iPads and books to carry out research in order to create a short document based around an enquiry question to do with the Viking invasion!

The enquiry questions include:

-Why did the Vikings want to invade Britain?

-How much fear did the Viking raids cause?

-Were the Vikings all bad?

They have been building the skills of carrying out historical enquiry and using sources as evidence.


DRIP Film about Climate change starring voices by Springfield Year 5 Children!

Awe. That's what Dr Kathryn Adamson felt when she heard the drip, drip, drip of melting arctic glaciers. The Drip project has used this experience to bring climate change science to young people in Greater Manchester through science-and-art sessions in which Year @Springfield had a leading role! Do you recognise the voices?

 Click on this link to watch this amazing film, and emotional plea. 



Hubble absolutely LOVED heading out to Sale High School to participate in the Trafford Sports Hall Athletics competition! They showed incredible teamwork and I was so proud to see them representing Springfield so fantastically! Together we are a team!

A great effort making Autumnal cups for the PTA raffle Year 5!

Science - Hubble were using the science enquiry strand 'Comparative and Fair Testing' by designing and creating a range of boats using foil. We tested different shapes to see which boats travelled through the water more quickly - this showed that there was less water resistance acting on the boat. We found out that the most streamlined boats were the fastest! The children worked amazingly well in teams demonstrating our 'Together we are a team' school value!

Lots of fun learning how to play rugby with the professionals - Sale Sharks!

Five Newton had a brilliant few days preparing and delivering debates - you are all experts in debating and was wonderful to hear you tackle some very important motions (with some surprising voting results).

Science - We were using the science enquiry strand 'Comparative and Fair Testing' by using newton meters to test the friction of different surfaces in our classroom! The children worked together to plan and carry out their investigations in teams.

Science - We were using the science enquiry strand 'Comparative and Fair Testing' to test the effect of air resistance on different parachute designs. With our groups we chose a focus (eg. shape of parachute, size of parachute, material of parachute). We made sure we only changed one thing in order to keep our test as fair as possible!

The Results - which company would you choose to make your parachute (and stay as safe in the air as possible)?

Using Editing Stations to Edit our First Year Five Story (Norse Myth)

Thoroughly enjoying our Pop Art graffiti pages! Being experimental is so important in art - we love to explore and develop our ideas!

History - Developing the skill of 'Using Sources as Evidence'

Hmmmmm, I wonder what the Anglo-Saxons used these for? We had a really good look at these artefacts and discussed their possible uses and origins.

Some table tennis fun in Hubble!

Last year we took part in a fantastic project linking art and geography/climate change. We were so lucky to have Fiona (Artist) and Gail (Human Geographer) come back in to discuss the project with us

Science - testing gravity! The children discovered a correlation between the mass (g) and the weight (N).

Enjoying the New Playground Equipment - Amazing Street Art Daniel!

Daily Mile - an active body means a healthy body and mind.

Exploring Maps for Anglo-Saxon Place Names in Geography

English - We had great fun developing our reading Gem 'Summarising' by using emojis to summarise the Norse myth 'Thor Regains His Hammer'.

PE fun with Toby! We love to develop our cricket skills alongside our classmates!

Learning all about place value in Miss Beddow's maths class!

Welcome to Year 5, 5 Newton, 5 Hubble and 5 Hawking!

At Springfield we care, learn and achieve together
