As the first year of upper key stage two, year 5 is a big but exciting challenge! Throughout the year we explore learning through different types of engaging theme work.
In Term 1 we learn all about the Amazing Americas. We delve into the theme exploring its tradition, culture and history. The key focus in this term is geography, where we get to become geographers and learn a variety of skills.
In Term 2 we head back in time to Ancient Greece, where we become expert historians and delve into all aspects of life in this era. We also learn lots of fascinating fact about Ancient Greece, including archaeology, Greek gods and the first Olympic Games.
In Term 3 we become scientists and get to explore science practically, conducting a variety of experiments, using a range of equipment. This term is full of motivating and fascinating units, including space, forces, animals and humans and investigation work.
