Local MP Visits Year 5


This morning, on Friday 18th January, we had another special visitor, our local MP Neil O'Brian. He spent some time talking to the children about his role and what it entails. Again, the children asked some great questions and Neil was very impressed with their knowlegde and enthusiasm. Your adults at school were very proud of you! Please ask the children about their exciting week and what they have learnt this week.


Year 5 would also like to say a huge thank you to Mrs Dave who organised these exciting opportunities for us this week.

Special Visitors


This week we have had some very special visitors coming to tell us all about the exciting roles that they have in our local community. We had a local Councillor come and talk to us, along with three gentlemen from the police service. The Councillor, Cllr Loydall, who is the Chair of Community Safety Partnership, at Oadby and Wigston Borough Council, spoke to the children about all of the exciting ways he tries to help in our community. Police Inspector Mike Cawley also joined us for the morning along with two police officers, Michael and Len. They showed up with a police van that the children were able to explore and even sit inside of. All of the children were super excited and really enjoyed the whole morning. They will not be forgetting this experience for a while! All of our visitors also mentioned how friendly and welcoming the school was and how the children were beautifully behaved. The Year 5 team were very proud of all of the children and very impressed with the questions they asked throughout the morning.

Happy New Year!


We would like to say a huge welcome back to all of our Eagles and Falcons, and their families. We have got lots of exciting things happening this Spring Term and we are all super eager to get started. So watch this space!

A Great First Term!


All of the staff in Year 5 would like to say a massive thanks to all of you at home for all of your support during the Autumn Term. It was a fabulous term and we all had lots of fun. The children enjoyed learning about the Earth, Sun and the Moon. They also enjoyed learning all about their local area and how crime and punishment has developed and changed throughout the years. 


The children had a wonderful time at the Space Center and really enjoyed watching Sherlock Gnomes at the cinemas in Loughborough. 


We hope that the Spring Term continues to be just as successful and fun for all of us!





This year the Year Fives will be learning about a wide and diverse curriculum:


Term 1 Term 2 Term 3
  • Space

  • Forces

  • Crime and Punishment

  • Our local area

  • Ancient Greeks
  • Solids, Liquids and Gases

  • Coastlines

  • Life Cycles

  • Transition


The Eagles and Falcons try hard to follow the golden rules that we use throughout school.


We are kind and helpful

We show respect

We look after property

We work hard

We are gentle

We are honest

We listen carefully


We know that these are the rules for life.


We try very hard in Year 5 to further our social, moral, spiritual and cultural understanding. This is done throughout whole school day in a variety of ways but especially through assemblies, 'Thought of the Day', R-Time and Seal. We are also very lucky at Brookside to be able to celebrate different religious festivals during our celebration days.
