Welcome to Year 5!
Year 5 is a fantastic year where the children start to have more responsibility for their work and more freedoms with how they chose to present their learning. Throughout the year we make links to current world events and provide opportunity for debate and understanding differing points of view.
We start off the year learning about the Space Race. This leads to some fantastic discussions on animal and human rights along with comparing points of view on the launch of Sputnik 1. Later in the year, we will be learning about Ancient Civilisations including the Shang Dynasty, Ancient Greece and then linking this to our previous learning from Year 3 about the Ancient Egyptians. Finally, in the summer term we will be focusing on the USA. During this topic we consider our understanding of freedom and why people chose to leave all they know and move to the unknown. Alongside this we enjoy a variety of art and technology projects including designing and making our own cushions, making a clay tile designed on space and building a replica of Santa’s sleigh using cogs and gears.
Each year we aim to hold a variety of enrichment opportunities. Previously this has included visits to a planetarium, Kew Gardens, American Indian workshops, a visit from our local fire station and Shakespeare workshops and performances to name few!
