Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Autumn: Welcome to the Jungle

Spring: Step Back in Time

Summer: To Infinity and Beyond



We began our 'Welcome to the Jungle' topic with a trip to Chester Zoo, where we experienced stepping into a 'jungle' environment for the first time.

Since then we have looked at the animals of the rainforest, the people who live there and the extraordinary climate.

Recently, we have been researching the devastating effects of deforestation.

    Spring Term - Step Back in Time



We are taking a 'Step Back In Time' this term in Year 5.


We have travelled back to the time of the ancient greeks and have been looking closely at their lifestyles, myths and art. We have even produced some of our own using greek patterns and images. Take a look...



 In our english lessons we have been looking at the famous story of 'The Trojan Horse'. We have even used drama to take on the roles of Spartans and Trojans! There are some fierce warriors in Year 5!



PE in Year 5



We have been improving our netball, tennis and athletics skills. We have also been working hard in tag rugby!
