Hi! Welcome to what we hope will be an amazing first term in Year 5. These are just some of the activities we will be doing this half term. Please press the link to view.
After a fantastic start to the year where the children have really enjoyed learning about all things space related - we are now ready to begin our second topic of the year. Please click on the link below to find out what 'Flow' is all about!
We are now in our third half term of the year. This half term we have got the topic, 'Scream Machine'. Through this topic, we will be investigating theme parks and ideas on how we could design our theme park.

Spring 1 - Scream Machine
We took part in this year's national Readathon to see how many books we could read in 2 weeks. We could then be sponsored by each book or chapter we completed. Our school set us an additional challenge of strange places we could read in. Check out our readathon photo gallery for some examples.
We are now in our fourth half term of the year. This half term we have got the topic, 'I am warrior'. Through this topic, we will be investigating all things Roman, including the Roman Empire, Roman soldiers and Boudicca. Click on the link below to see what this will involve.
We are now in our penultimate half term of the year. This half term we have got the topic, 'Traders and Raiders'. Through this topic, we will be investigating the Saxons and Vikings, who they were, where they came from and the legacy they have left with us today - many of our UK towns and cities have names that go back to this time period.

We are so proud of the work the children have achieved so far and hope this continues through the year.
Yr 5 Residential - York
For three days in the Summer term, Year 5 children have the opportunity to visit the historical city of York. We stay at the local Youth Hostel (see picture below) which is situated about a mile from the City Centre - ( don't worry it doesn't seem far and there is always plenty to keep you interested as you walk in.)
We visit a variety of local attractions including the world famous and recently refurbished (following severe flood damage) Jorvik Viking Centre, York Castle Museum, and York's most famous street - The Shambles, as well as a relaxing boat trip on the River Ouse.
There is also lots of time for fun too and weather permitting there is a large field area near the river where we can spend our evenings with lots of outdoor sporty fun.
Take a look in out York photo gallery below to see a few sights from previous trips soon to be updated by this year's trip at the end of June.
