Curriculum in Year 5

Autumn 1  Year 5 – Space Invaders

Our topic for the first half term was 'Space Invaders' where we looked forward to the challenge of sending a teddy bear into Space! Alongside this we learnt about the history of space, including finding out about the first people (and creatures) sent in to Space! We learnt about our Solar System and identified how the planets orbit the sun, as well as investigating how night and day are created. 

Autumn 2  Year 5 – Lights! Camera! Action!

Last half term our topic wass LIGHTS! CAMERA! ACTION! During this topic we used Stop Motion to create our very own animations. We learnt all about camera angles, lighting and music, which all helps to create the mood and tine of the animation. We all had an amazing time!

Spring 1 Year 5 – Ancient Egyptians

This half term was all about travelling back in time to the world of Ancient Egypt. We learnt all about the mysteries of Tutankhamun's tomb and how Howard Carter discovered it (with a little help from his friends!) At the end of our topic we even created our own 'Horrible Histories' performance to show what we had learnt. It was great fun!

Spring 2 Year 5 - Amazing Americas

This half term we are going to be discovering the Americas! This topic is largely geography based where we will be learning all about the different climate zones and creating our own biome zoo!

In English we will be looking at stories from other cultures and in maths we will be moving on to fractions and percentages. Our science this half term is all about the life processes of plants and animals and we will learn how reproduction occurs. RE is based around Christianity and the relevance of Easter Sunday (it's not just about the chocolate eggs!) In PE we will be working as a team, ensuring we polish up our defending and attacking skills! There will also be plenty of creativity this half term with art based projects and computing! 

Are you ready to discover the Americas?

Summer 1 Year 5 - Top Gear

This half term our topic is ‘Top Gear’. The main focus of this topic is to create a company and design and make a moving model car. In order to do this the children will be working in groups, creating a business and then carrying out research to ensure their car fits the market. At the end of the topic, the children will be hosting a car show in which their car will receive votes. The two winning teams of the Car Show will then be invited to take part in a competition at ‘The Museum of Power’. 

As part of the Computing curriculum, the children will continue to develop the skills required to remain safe online. They will also be learning how to create promotional goods to promote their model cars. 

For our Science topic, the children will be learning all about life cycles and the development of humans. They will be learning all about the changes that occur at different stages of life, including the changes that happen during puberty.

In English, linking with our topic, the children will be learning how to be persuasive and will also learn how to write a discussion text. They will continue to develop their use of vocabulary in descriptive writing and alongside this will be learning to perform poetry. 

In Maths the children will be developing their understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages. They will also continue to develop mental arithmetic strategies.
