Year 5

Welcome to Year 5
We start off the year with a journey through the solar system looking at famous scientists and their discoveries in space. This year we will have a star gazing evening held on the school field which will immerse the children as they show off their understanding to family and friends.

We then move our focus onto Geography where we study life in the Rainforest: the eco-systems and habitats as well as investigating how it is in danger and what we can do to stop deforestation.

Spring term encompasses learning both about film; where we will be creating our own play scripts and performing them, and the Stone Age. During our Stone Age topic we will be noting the differences between life then and now, culminating with the ultimate question. Do the children think they could survive the Stone Age?

In the Summer Term we first turn to learning about the Monarchy, discussing which monarch made the most positive impact on our society and why.Our final summer topic considers the differing culture of India! We will be learning about lifestyles, the music and their food.

Year 5 is the stepping stone used to secure learning skills before Year 6, essential to this is independence and perseverance. We support the children through the Autumn term to become more independent in their approach to their learning: having a go and seeing what they can do rather than waiting for an adult’s support. We also work on helping the children to join together lots of their learning from across the school, remembering strategies and information to apply to our topics.

Year 5 is a fantastic year on both an educational and personal level for the children, ensuring they are fully ready for their exciting final year at Bramley!
