Welcome to Year 5!

As part of Upper Key Stage 2, Year 5 is where we begin our last couple of years of our Primary School journey. We are among the oldest children in school and take pride in setting a good example and being excellent role models to the younger pupils

What do we learn.....?

In the Autumn term we will be looking at the Mayans and Aztecs and making discoveries in a wide range of areas, including the gods that they believed in, the calendar they followed and the Spanish invasion that lead to their demise.  Tied in with this we will be looking at the drawings of Frederick Catherwood in art and looking at the chocolate trade and designing an Aztec cushion in DT. 

We also have a new and exciting topic in Geography, looking at the world's Biomes, and the different states in America. 

In the Spring we will be looking at the Indus Valley considering historical evidence and how the Indus Valley was discovered, as well as how people wrote before the alphabet was produced.  We will be discovering traditional Indian stories in literacy and Indian food in design technology.  Spring is also exciting because we head off for our residential to Cliffe House, during which we will have some exciting art, geography and science activities to undertake.

Finally, during the summer term, the excitement continues with our focus on Native Americans.  We will consider the discoveries they made, their tribes, including tribal dancing in PE and the homes that they lived in.   

In addition to all of this we will be learning French, computing skills and looking at various elements of science.  We will look at skills for improving our reading and writing, along developing our maths skills and understanding.

It’s going to be an exciting year!
