Year 5

Welcome to our Year 5 Class Page.  

We are delighted to welcome children into Upper Key Stage 2, and are excited to commence this term of thought-provoking and skill-building topics.

Our first term of this academic year introduces fun and exciting topics such as ‘The Anglo-Saxons’ in History, ‘Mars Rover’ coding unit in Computing and learning all about ‘Ourselves’ and 'Our Domestic Church' in RE.

We are looking forward to offering a mix of practical investigations and knowledge building in our ‘Out of this World’ space unit in Science, while also reading ‘Cosmic’ in English to complement our theme in Science.  We are excited to encourage our children to unlock their creative potential in our ‘Every Picture Tells a Story’ topic in Art and Design.

In Year 5, we are looking forward to consolidating our learning by visiting The Royal Observatory as a Science Educational Visit.  Children will also be preparing for the Carol Service this term and will also attend this year’s Christmas Pantomime at Richmond Theatre.

Looking ahead to the Spring Term, Year 5 children will be experiencing their first school residential visit to Sayers Croft, where they will be taking part in outdoor and adventurous activities and carrying out Geography field studies.
