My partner and I have had a chat about eventally living together. It's not going to happen any time soon but it has made me think wow where can I fit you haha.
He has 2 children a boy and a girl and have 5 girls.
My eldest have their own room and the 3 three share.
His children have always got in with my younger 3 with mattresses on the floor.
But if my partner moved in I would like the children to have their own beds so they will feel like this is their home to. Any ideas on how I could manage this?

What are the ages and how often are the two children staying each week?
It's a bit of a push isn't it.

Their ages are 3 and 5. He has them every weekend Friday to sunday.
I know it is yes but I want them to feel like this is there home to. I was thinking about bunk beds and one of them having a pull out bed

Is there any chance that you can pool together finances and buy/rent somewhere bigger? 5 children in one bedroom (unless it is massive) is very cramped. They will need storage space as well if you want them to feel at home.

On a side note did you speak to your children about them moving in? My DM didn't, the occupancy in our house doubled so we had a lot less room (my sibling and I had to share a box room) and it is something that I wouldn't consider for myself as a result.

Yes spoke to the children. My younger 3 and his 2 are similar ages. I would never ask the older two to share as this is their house and will be living in it 24/7. That's why I needed ideas for the largerst room but also enough floor space. It's not something that will happen straight away my.children go to their dad's every other weekend and as selfish as this sounds I really like that free time to do as I please.
