Year 5

Our next project for the rest of the half term is all about the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons! This project is packed with exciting opportunities to explore this age in time through hands-on experience. This includes having our very own Viking visit us on the 6th October! We look forward to uploading some more photos soon and share some great examples of newspapers and narratives from our English sessions!

What a busy first week of Year 5! We have been working incredibly hard this week, exploring locations a sky-ship could travel to, what you would take to a desert island if you crash landed and thinking carefully about the best materials to create a sky-ship out of! Below you can see some of the wonderful sky-ships the children were busy making and the experiment in action! The Year 5 children have also amazed us with their descriptive writing pieces, they have been thinking carefully about the vocabulary choices to describe a setting from the novel 'Brightstorm'.

Welcome to Year 5!


We hope that you have all had a fantastic summer and are ready for the new school year. Year 5 has lots of exciting projects and experiences to get involved with! 


Our transition project will be based on the book 'Brightstorm' which is full of adventure, about two children set on a trip in a sky-ship!
