Year 5K


Welcome to Year 5! 



Spring Term!

This half term our topic is Invader and Settlers! 

Our work focuses around both the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. In science we have been exploring an Anglo-Saxon boat smash. We have investigated how to separate materials as well as the changes that have been made. 

In literacy we have explored the character of Robin Hood - the famous outlaw of Sherwood Forest! 

As part of our second topic Blast Off! We have created our own Mars Rovers using Tech Card. We thought about the different scientific equipment that our Rovers would need to make exciting discoveries on the red planet! 

You can see images of our Rovers below. 


Our first topic this year is the Olympics. We will be looking at the modern Olympic Games but also looking back in history at the Ancient Greeks and how the games were founded!

Below you can see some of our work.

Below you will find our New To... presentation. All the information about our upcoming year can be found here.
