Autumn:

During the Autumn term, we will be stepping back in time to visit the lands of the 'Smashing Saxons'. Feeling brave, Year 5? Then, come face-to-face with the beast Grendel from Beowulf as we share this ancient tale. In science lessons, we will be feeling the force and applying our learning to create our very own mini-racing cars. Vroom! Vroom! 

In the second half-term, we will be walking the Long Road to Freedom in South Africa. Here, we will learn all about Nelson Mandela's fight for equality and how he changed things for the better. We will continue to explore the geographical features of South Africa and create some colourful masterpieces in art. 

Please note swimming lessons take place every Wednesday morning for the Autumn term.

 

Spring:

During the spring term we will be discovering all about the wonders of Ancient Egypt and uncovering the mysteries of Tutankhamun’s tomb. Children will be writing their very own Egyptian adventure story in the style of The Red Pyramid. We will have fun dancing like Egyptians and mummifying tomatoes! We will also be making our own pyramids and finishing with our very own Egyptian day!

Summer

We will begin our Final Frontier topic with our learning focus - exploring the USA. Children will be involved in researching the different states of this infamous country and exploring their many hidden landmarks. 5,4,3,2,1, Blast Off! Next, we are hurtling to outer space to explore our magnificent solar system. Children will prepare for a very important space mission to the National Space Centre.

For our final half-term, we will be stepping into the Amazon rainforest to discover all of the many unusual creatures that live in its canopies. Swing from vine to vine, learning about the importance of adaptation and the need to protect the rainforest from deforestation.
