Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Here you will find lots of important information about what's going on in year 5.  We will also be showing some of our fantastic work as well as photos and school trips.


Autumn term topic

Our topic this term is Extreme Earth.  We introduced this topic with a fabulous day packed full of exciting activities.  The children discussed natural disasters. We made erupting Volcanoes, a typhoon in a bottle, pupils designed posters to help reduce our carbon footprint. The pupils also created some beautiful volcano art work.  After taking part in the activities, the pupils discussed ideas and activities that they would like to carry out during the term.  We were very impressed with these ideas and are excited to see them come to life in the classroom.
