Year 5 2021-22

Our Summer 1 theme is 'Nature Detectives,' focusing on science - the life cycles of different animals, and geography - rivers and the water cycle. We will compare and contrast the reproduction of various animals and plants and classify living things based on specific characteristics.

In art we will use photographs of nature in and around the school grounds, alongside inspiration by Orla Kiely designs, to create ceramic mosaics. 


Our class book is The Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo. 


Please continue to check this page regularly for important information about PE days, homework, spelling lists, curriculum coverage and useful links. It will also feature photographs and videos of our work and experiences.

We had a great day at Harewood House for our class trip! We participated in 3 workshops throughout the day and also had time to wander around the house!

We enjoyed a music workshop, learning how to sing in time, play a rhythm and improvise.

WW2 Day

Tom Palmer visited us last week to talk about his new piece of writing, 'The Barnbow Lasses' which linked to our war topic. We were lucky enough to be 1 of 3 schools to win this visit by Tom!

During the last week of the autumn term, we cooked our WW2 recipe and had our reward party! Here are some photos:
