Year 5 2016/17

Welcome to Year 5

This section will have pictures and examples of work to let you see what we have been up to in Y5. We have really enjoyed teaching the Year 5 children so far, and look forward to the months ahead.

We strive to create an engaging and exciting curriculum, available to all children. Some examples of work we have done include:

  • designing and printing Saxon helmets.
  • creating, testing and evaluating Viking ships.
  • studying and comparing the Anglo Saxons and Vikings.
  • exploring the world of the fictitious Erik the Viking.
  • investigating the Titanic disaster, which included writing recount letters and holding an in-class debate.
  • observing Earth and Space, including an planetarium visit.
  • evaluating and comparing Christmas TV adverts.

And many more to come!

Year 5 Residential Visit

During the Easter half term, our Year 5 children enjoyed a residential visit to Dobroyd Castle Activity Centre in Todmorden.

During the visit the children carried out a range of fun activities including; archery, canoeing, raft building, obstacle course and the Dungeon of Doom!

This was our first visit to the centre and both the children and weather were extremely well behaved over the course of the visit.
