Year 5

School in September
Learning Activities to Prepare for Year 6
Learning activities can now be found on our Remote Learning Platform - See-Saw. All children should have a code to access See-Saw, which they will be able to use to complete and upload activities to. 
There are a set of four really helpful videos to watch - they will show you how to access learning activities, how to save them and send them to your teacher, and how your teacher will respond to you. Thank-you to Mr Folly for putting these together.
Sharing Assembly - 20th July

Year 5 Learning Activities for Week Beginning 20th July
The learning activities for the week are now on See-Saw. Please make sure you log-in and complete them there.
In case anyone is having any difficulties with See-Saw, a copy of the learning activities for this week will be placed below, along with some advice for everyone about managing your children's learning at home. 
The top page will detail all the learning activities that you should find below. Some activities need you to log in to Times Tables Rock Stars, Mathletics or Spellodrome. If you have any difficulty with any of these, please let the office know, and we will email you the log-in details over. They should be at the back of your child's green log book.
We would love to hear about your learning too - don't be afraid to email in pictures, or stories of your learning. To help us share this with your child's class teacher, don't forget to put their class name on the email.

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.



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!


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.
