Find out about life in Year 5


On Monday 16th July, everyone in school had a lesson in their new class with their new teachers. In Year 5, we found out a little about totem poles in preparation for our topic on North America in the autumn term. We made some totem poles for our wall display. We also looked at our homework for the holidays. There is a copy below for anyone who needs it.

This term, our main topic will be the continent of North America. We will find out about the countries in this region of the world and the human and physical features found there. We will also learn about lines of latitude and longitude and compass points. Your holiday homework will come in handy in these lessons! We will make dream catchers and collage landscapes. Writing about places to visit will link nicely to work in English.

In science, we will be looking at our solar system first and then, next half term, we will study forces. The Bible will be the theme of our R.E. lessons and then later we will explore how the birth of Jesus is recorded in the Gospels. In IT, we will find out about internet research and web design. The people from Sports Development will come to teach us about outdoor and adventurous activities and we will be teaching ball skills to Year R.


This term, Year 5 will prepare their Parents’ Worship on Advent.
