Welcome to Year 5
In Year 5 at West Oxford Community Primary School we learn a great deal about the world around us, and ways that we can help make it an even better place. We really care about our community and our part in it. We have been busy already learning about the Tudors, conducting science investigations, speaking Italian, reading Treason by Berlie Doherty and working on our maths skills while learning Ukulele. We are just about to start designing games on Scratch, creating portrait masterpieces in art, reading a new book and having fun with maths around our busy writing schedule. We enjoy what we do- We hope you enjoy our page. It's all happening in year 5!

We have just finished reading Treason by Berlie Doherty which takes place in Tudor England as our current topic is the Tudors. It’s a great book- we recommend it!
We can’t wait to see what our next book will be …

Have fun exploring computer coding with Scratch, a computer coding program for children to have fun and create in a safe space.
In term 3, Year 5 will be designing our own computer games on Scratch.
We are also practicing for our Holiday Winter Concert- taking place very soon!
