Welcome to Year Five!


Miss Rushton, Mrs Rayner, Mr Taylor and Mrs Lockyer are here to help you thrive and achieve this year. This is a particularly important time for you at Talbot as we are preparing you for Year 6.


This year, we will look at a range of topics including The Ancient Maya, Global Warming, The USA, The English Civil War and The Jurassic Coast. To bring these topics to life, over the course of the year, we plan to  visit the Winchester Science Museum, Corfe Castle and we are also planning an exciting trip through Land and Wave in the summer.


We have recently invested in lots of new books for the reading corner in each classroom and we urge you to take this opportunity to read widely and develop a love of reading. As a reward for those of you who read at least three times a week, each half term we will host a cinema experience in school. Please remember to ask your parents to sign your reading records when you read at home!


Throughout the year, our learning powers will be:






Problem Solving



We hope you embrace all the challenges, experiences and opportunities that this fun-packed year will bring.
