We also have our own Learning Wall - see link below. We use the resources on the Wall to research out topics and curriculum work in school. Please use these resources at home to further develop your child's learning.

Year 5 Curriculum Overview


Topic Challenges


Our topic this term is 'May the force be with you' This is the term the children have the opportunity to work alongside our expert facilitator in a LEGO STEM workshop that will take place on Monday the 28th of January which will enable the children to actively learn about forces through hands on experiences using and applying their new found knowledge and vocabulary. The children will dive deeper into the concepts of air resistance and friction. The topic has lots of opportunity for real hands on experimentation and to encounter (and use) new scientific language discovered in non fiction texts. 


Year 5 Residential 

Class Novel


Our  class novel to promote reading  is 'Macbeth' adapted by Neil Richards. This is one of my all time favourite pieces of English literature and I can't wait to share my enthusiasm and joy for such a classic piece of literature.
