Your child’s journey through Year 5



Year 5 - Spring Term Plan 2019





Year 5 - Autumn 2 Term Plan 2018


Beep Test

Year 5 have been preparing for the beep test and had fun whilst we measured their fitness levels.

Iconic Buildings

We had fun identifying these iconic buildings on our trip to central London. Do you recognise any?


River Thames

Year 5 took a ride down The River Thames on a boat and enjoyed seeing all the amazing London buildings they had researched come to life.

Loving London

We have been researching and learning more about London! We have been taking a closer look at the iconic buildings in London and finding out why they are so famous and loved.


Local Walk

Do you recognise any of these places in our locality?



Year 5 - Autumn Term Plan 2018





All of the children had the opportunity to cycle at a local velodrome centre.


Pizza Fun

As part of our DT learning, Year 5 children had a very enjoyable time making Pizza.  They were taught about hygiene when cooking, how to roll out dough and came up with some great topping options for each pizza.  They turned out well and were very delicious.

Year 5 - Summer Term 2 Plan

Digital Microscopes

As part of our science learning, we used digital microscopes to look at the make-up of soil.

British Library

We enjoyed our visit to the British Library.  We attended a literacy workshop and learnt how to play with words and creative writing.

Outdoor Maths

As part of our maths learning this term, the children were taught how to measure capacity with water.

Greenwich Observatory

Year 5 enjoyed a trip to the Greenwich Observatory.  The planetarium show was fascinating, with millions of ‘Goldilocks’ planets, we think that other life forms almost certainly exist!  Standing over the Greenwich Meridian Line with one foot in the East and one in the West was fun!

Making Tiles

We created patterns using mosaic tiles and glass beads; this helped us to think of how we used space and pattern.  We went on to create our own clay tiles, which were fired.  Taking inspiration from Dutch ceramics, we then decorated our tiles using a limited palette.


Science Rocks

As part of our learning about rocks, we carried out a series of investigations to record properties of different rocks.  We selected our own equipment to test hardness, solubility, structure and permeability.



We had a wonderful week and developed some excellent skills.  Creating our own bird designs and developing these to prints was a real highlight.  It was a great experience using a professional press.  Our hard work came together for the exhibition.

Tiger Mosaic

We were lucky to work with a Mosaic Specialist who taught us safe methods to cut tiles.  Together, we designed our mosaic and worked together as a year group to create our fabulous tiger.  We think he looks g-r-r-r-eat!

Outside Maths

Working outside is fun!  We were given a series of challenges which involved converting measures in different units and problem solving using perimeter.  Team work was essential.



The children have been working on their sketchbooks and creating some wonderful work.


Year 5’s summer Extreme Earth topic started with making ‘erupting’ volcanoes.
