Year 5

Welcome to our page!

Welcome to Year 5!


What a fantastic year we have lined up for you all. 


Our transition topic is called "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" and focuses on the book by C.S. Lewis. This hopefully will give ample time for the children to understand what life is like in Year 5, before we get into our first main project, "Invaders and Raiders".


We will upload some photographs as we get started, so be sure to look back again in the coming weeks! 

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe- Transition Unit


During this unit, Year 5 wrote a setting description of a Winter Woodland scene from Narnia. The children investigated states of matter in Science, exploring a variety of ways to melt ice and save the characters of Narnia. In art, we created masks of the creatures of the forest masks using paper mâché.  

Investigating how ice melts!
