Lynher Class – Year 5

Mrs Hatherley with Miss Brown



Lynher Class is Year 5 and takes children into upper Key Stage Two.  The exciting topics children learn about in Lyhner Class are:

  • North America
  • Earth and Space
  • Cruising the Mediterranean
  • Ancient Greece
  • Anglo-Saxons and Vikings
  • Backpackers

The wide range of topics builds on the children's previous learning whilst also supports their continued learning.  In Year 5, a range of exciting learning opportunities are used to enhance the learning including Greek food experiences, a Truro Cathedral visit, intense swimming lessons and more. We enjoy using our beautiful outdoor grounds to enhance our learning in a range of subjects. 

We love reading in Year 5.  Every day, we spend 20 minutes reading our own book.  Which of these top 50 have you read?

Parent Curriculum Information

Each half-term we share an overview of our curriculum with our parents/carers.  A copy of these can be found at the bottom of this page.  A paper copy is sent home each half-term.  We hope our parents/carers find this useful information to know what their child is learning and to support them in having conversations with their children.  


Each half-term, we create and send home a homework menu.  This has a range of learning activities linked to our current topic and reading. We send a paper copy home to parents each half-term. 

Knowledge Organisers

These provide the key knowledge we will be learning in our foundation topics this half-term.  It would be useful to look at these with you child and talk about them.  You could have mini quizzes to see what they can remember, draw parts of them, or they can create their own version.  This will help the children to ensure they remember the knowledge fully. 

If you would like another copy of any of these documents, please don't hesitate to contact us.  


Lynher Class have been learning to play the recorder with specialist music teacher Sally.
