Welcome to Year 5!
We have all settled well into Year 5 and are eager and ready to learn across the curriculum!
This term, we will start the year with our Realising Aspirations topic focusing on the jobs in the health and leisure industries. In English, we will be learning about British Values and focusing on the Rule of Law, reading the text ‘Mr Creep the Crook’ to inspire our writing. We will be visiting a local farm and a local market to enable the children to experience first-hand where their food comes from and the careers that surround it.
Across the Autumn Term, our Geography topic begins and our overall debate question is ‘What makes mountains and volcanoes dangerous? Why are people still attracted to them?’ We will be learning about mountains and how they are formed, as well as natural disasters, such as volcanoes and earthquakes. We will use our Geography knowledge to inspire our written work in English.
Across the Spring Term, our History topic begins and we will be answering the question ‘The Great Fire of London – disaster or opportunity? The question will enable us to investigate The Great Fire of London, as well as The Plague. We are looking forward to creating some exciting artwork based on our topic. We will also be using our knowledge to inspire our written work in English.
In the Summer Term, we will be answering the question ‘ How can we convince people to pick healthier food options? This Scientific question will allow us to investigate which foods are healthier and how we can convince people to make the right choices. We will be creating and making healthy recipes as well as encouraging and motivating other people throughout the school to eat healthily.
We are very excited about our Year 5 journey! Our curriculum is very inspiring and we link our topic work to our learning in other areas of the curriculum. Don’t forget to visit our page to see our learning and fabulous work!

Year 5 News
Sunday 18 July 2021 Year 5 Ace Year 5 have been working hard to answer their ACE question 'How can we convince people to pick healthier food options?'. As teams they have created cookbooks, TV shows and some amazing art work.
Tuesday 9 February 2021 1066 Day On Thursday 29th April we were lucky enough to have a free workshop about 1066. This workshop looked at the Battle of Hastings but also King William's ability to turn a negative into a positive. For example, when he saw Haley's Comet he saw it as a good omen that one day he may be king while others were convinced that it meant the end of the world! The children learned about the historical events leading up to the battle and also were encouraged to have King Williams positive outlook. Towards the end of the workshop they were given techniques to help them be calm and relax. It was a fantastic workshop and the children really enjoyed it. The facilitators of the workshop also remarked on what wonderful children we had at this school and we couldn't agree more!
