Welcome to Class 5!

Hello and welcome to Year 5’s page!

This year we have an actioned packed year of delving into Ancient cultures, which includes the Vikings, The Shang Dynasty and the Greeks!  We will be learning all about these ancient civilisations, and what impact they made on the modern world.  Within Geography we will be looking at the UK, looking at and comparing different rivers and then we end Year 5 looking at the unique continent of South America.


In English we will be studying different genres of books and creating fabulous writing for each topic. Within Maths will we continue improving our mathematical skills for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.


RE in Year 5 looks at the different religions of Hinduism and Judaism.  Within Christianity we will be discussing how music and art convey Christmas, at the end of the Autumn term.  In Spring, we will be looking at how the festival of Easter offers hope, then delving into what we can learn from wisdom.  We finish the year looking at Christian Pilgrimages and whether every Christian should partake in one.


In Science, we are looking at the fascinating topic of Space first, then we delve into forces, levers and pulleys.  We take quite a deep look at materials, the properties and the changes, then we finish on life cycles and living things. Within computing we are going to be delving into the world of gaming, including creating our own games and 3D models!


As I said it is an action packed year, and there’s lots more I couldn’t fit in, including PE, where we will be learning new skills and exciting new sports!


Here’s to a great year!
