Welcome to Year 5!

The tremendous Year 5 team are Mrs Taylor, Miss Garside, Mrs Davies and Mrs Carter

During the Summer Term, we are learning all about the Egyptians.  We have a creative homework linked to this which can be found in the homework section of our year group page.  During our topic, we will be learning about the Egyptians - how they lived and worked, we will also be exploring the ancient ritual of mummification, discussing ideas and evidence about the past. Finally, we will learn about the powers of different Egyptian Gods. 

Mrs Taylor and Miss Garside are busy planning a visit linked to our topic and more details will follow shortly. 

We will keep updating our year group page - so please keep a look out! 

As you bring in your homework projects, we will update the pictures with your fabulous learning. 

Here are some interesting facts about us. Did you know...

Mrs Taylor loves Disney!  She is counting down until her next holiday there and even has a picture on the inside of our class cupboard door!  Her car has a Mickey on the top (which Mr Taylor finds a little embarrassing if he has to use it!).  The family guinea pig is even called Minnie after the mouse!  Her favourite film is Beauty and the Beast (the animated version).

Miss Garside is football crazy!  She plays semi professional football for Stoke City Ladies.  When she was a little younger than she is now, she was scouted by England under 21s and 23s (unfortunatley she was too old because she was actually 24).   Miss Garside has now fully recovered from breaking her leg two seasons ago and is back in action. She is the head coach of Gainsborough boys football team and other sports here.  As you know she is from Stoke therefore her favourite word is 'duck'!

Mrs Davies is a huge Harry Potter fan.  Her favourite character is Snape but don't worry because she's not as strict as him!  If Mrs Davies could work at any other school in the world, it would be Hogwarts.

Mrs Carter has joined us this term. She enjoys spending time in the great outdoors; be it walking, relaxing and, believe it or not, running!

Inset Day, by Mrs Harding


A safe and supportive environment; safe from hurt by others, in what they say or do; safe to learn within an enquiring environment; encouraging creativity, and a questioning mind.


Smart ways of thinking and learning, behaving and the way in which we present ourselves, as a member of Gainsborough School.


Treat others as you wish to be treated, help each other to be happy within school, greet others with a smile, help to create a happy and enthusiastic place to learn.
