Welcome to Year 5 

This term our BIG question is:

What’s beyond the horizon?

We are focussing on the Empire Windrush and Space. Through this we will be dicussiong what is beyond the horizon, and how this differs for different people.

Our main texts for this term are: George’s Secret Key to the Universe by Christophe Galfard, Lucy Hawking, and Stephen Hawking and Arthur and Curiosity: The Story of a Mars Rover by Markus Motum.



The Curriculum Page on the website helps you find out much more about each of the subjects. 

Our Knowledge organisers can be downloaded here, so you can see exactly what the "sticky knowledge" is we want the children to learn.

Please familiarise yourself with the Teaching and Learning in Year 5 document you can download at the bottom of this page.  It has lots of information about our day, what we learn and how we learn. The timetable for a usual week in Year 5 is also on this document.

Here are our Knowledge Organisers for the SpringTerm. These are used by the children to higlight key information and vocabulary for a topic.
