In Year 5, we offer a broad and balanced curriculum to prepare our children for a life in modern Britain.

In Year 5, we have lots of new exciting topics such as volcanoes, forces and building bridges. See some of our work below...
We conducted a gravity experiment to test depth and diameter of falling objects. We tested a marble, golf ball and tennis ball and examined the crater it made.
This half term, we are studying volcanoes and earthquakes. In our lessons so far, we have looked at the three main layers of the Earth, tectonic plates and features of a volcano.
We are learning about bridges in Design and Technology this half term. We started by testing the strength of different beams made from different materials by adding weight to them. We then went on to add trusses to further strengthen the structure.
Team 11 and 12 have had a fantastic start to the school year. Read on to find out what we've been learning...
We have sculpted and painted clay dragons which was very messy but fun!
We studied the 'The Four Gentlemen' and had a go at recreating them using ink.
We've practised writing Chinese calligraphy and finally we've designed our own traditional Ming dynasty vases.
We have developed our programming skills and learnt how to code a Micro:bit.
We've studied Egyptian music and linked it to hieroglyphic symbols even creating our piece of inspired body percussion.
