Cherry, Year 5

Welcome to Cherry, Year 5

Year 5 is an inquisitive, enthusiastic learning community, which we believe combines the desire to work hard with the need to be mindful and develop ourselves as 'Maltby Citizens'. We particularly enjoy exploring themes in Science and Technology and finding out how things work. 

We demonstrate our values of Achievement, Excellence and Opportunities by:

  • Being committed to achieving our personal best every time
  • Striving to be excellent ourselves, and challenging this in others to benefit our learning community
  • Engaging in as many wider opportunities as we possibly can adn exploring possibilities


Our Big Question is: What is home?

The question ' What is home?' focuses on the Viking Invasion following a theme of invaders and settlers. It makes us think about the safety of home and what happens when this is threatened. Exploring Norse Myths, helps us gain an understanding of other cultures and their heritage. 

Using a range of fiction and non-fiction texts, we will build on our reading fluency and stamina, at the same time building our technical vocabulary and understanding of what was a significant period in British history since 1066.  




  • Norse Myths
  • Beowulf
  • How to train you dragon
  • Varjak Paw
  • A range of non-fiction texts
  • A range of poetry
