The Year 5 team

Stunning Start! 


When the children returned to school after their Christmas break they experienced quite a shock! Each classroom had something precious stolen from inside. In order to solve the case children had to become detectives, analyising fingerprints and handwriting and solving clues to find the suspect!

Our Spring term topic is Crime and Punishment! 


The children will be learning about how crime was investigated and people were punished over time starting from the from the Roman Era up until current day. Children will also be discussing the impact that crime can have upon local communities. 



The text we will be working on this term is Holes. A story about a young boy named Stanley Yelnats who thanks to some very bad luck, was wrongly accused of a crime and sent to the awful Camp Green Lake as punishment. However, Stanley soon discovers that all is not what it seems at Camp Green lake....


Attendance and Punctuality

We do our very best to support your child’s learning and expect children to attend school every day, unless they are unwell.  We also expect children to arrive on time for every session. 

Children who have good attendance make good progress and achieve more highly.

Healthy schools


At Highlands our aim is to help our children become healthy and happy citizens of the world. To support this we would like you to make sure your child has a water bottle to help keep them hydrated at school. They will also need to have a healthy breakfast before they come to school. We are also working hard to provide our children with the healthiest lunches possible to make sure they are ready to learn in the afternoon. On a Monday and  a Friday your child is allowed to have one treat in their lunch box. All children are able to bring a healthy snack to have at playtime such as a piece of fruit or cereal bar.
