Welcome to Year 5. This page will contain all the information you need to have for a terrific Year 5.
Curriculum information from last year is left in place as a guide and may well change.
Autumn Term – It’s All Greek to Me!
Values: Peace and Hope
Throughout the Autumn Term the children will be exploring the life and times of the Ancient Greeks. They will be exploring the Geography of the country as well as important events such as the Trojan War and key civilisations such as Athens and Sparta. Watch this space!
Spring Term – We Have Lift Off!
Values: Respect and Forgiveness
Throughout the Spring term, the children will explore the stars in this space topic. We will be studying the planets and complementing our learning through our Science topics. The children will also enjoy the experience of having the space come to our school in the Space Dome.
Summer Term – River, Roses, Religion
Values: Community and Faith
Throughout the Summer term, the children will travel back in time to Medieval Tewkesbury, as well as having a Geography focus as we will look at the make up of a river. This topic will culminate in a brilliant day out at the Medieval Fayre, where the children become knights for a day!
