"A centre of learning and opportunity"



Welcome to Year 5

What a way to blast off the start of Year 5 with our first topic – ‘Out of This World!’ 

A very Science-focused topic, the children will learn all about Earth and Space. We will investigate the planets and the sheer size of our Solar System, identify the phases of the Moon, and ask questions such as why do we have day and night? Launching into English, there may be some alien lifeforms lurking in Chris Riddell’s fantastic ‘Alienography’, some ‘Comet’s falling from Kate Wakeling’s brilliant poetry book ‘Moonjuice’, and things really do get a little peculiar when we explore ‘The Watertower’ by the great Gary Crew. We cannot wait to see the galactic work produced in this topic, and see the children’s creativity truly go out of this world…
