About Year 5

As the first year of upper key stage two, year 5 is a big but exciting challenge! Throughout the year we explore learning through some engaging topic work.

In Term 1 we learn all Ancient Egypt. We delve into the ancient world of mummies, tombs and amazing architecture.

In Term 2 we head to Space and find out all about wonderful planet and galaxies. We also learn lots of fascinating fact about space.

In Term 3 we travel to India to find out about this fascinating country. We look at many areas such as its food, its culture and its history.

In Term 4 we go back in time to the 1500’s to experience the magical world of William Shakespeare. We will become actors, playwrights and theatre critics.

In Term 5 we explore what Healthy Living actually means. We look at questions such as: what is a balanced diet and what we can do to keep fit.

Finally in Term 6 we will undertake an ‘Apprentice’ style challenge where we will create a business plan in order to win a pitch and create project.


Homework will differ each week and be based around Maths and English or Topic. In addition to this, there is always spelling and timetables to work on! If there are any problem, please feel free to contact the class teacher.
