Welcome to Year Five’s website page!


Here you will be able to find out what we are learning about as well as see regular updates of us engaging in and enjoying our work. During the Autumn term, the topics the children will be learning are Vikings and Discovering New lands. This will involve learning about lots of new and exciting things such as Viking homes and how they lived and how and why they invaded countries like ours with help from ‘That History Bloke’. We will explore Norse stories and study how to sketch Viking long ships. We will be finding out about orienteering and how explorers use equipment to help them navigate the globe!

The class books which we will be reading are 'Beowulf' by Michael Morpurgo and 'Shackleton’s Journey' by William Grill. We will also be reading Norse poetry and poems about space. We will be linking as much of our learning as possible together.

In Science the children will be taught the topics Forces as well as Earth and Space. During the Autumn term we will be going on an exciting trip to The Centre for Life.


PE for Year Five will be on a Thursday so please make sure that a suitable PE kit is in school
