Welcome to Year Five's section of the website. Look out for regular updates to find out what the children have been learning and experiencing.
Routine and Information
Our topic for the Autumn Term 2018 is 'Thrills and Spills'. We will be using 'Coraline' to support this topic.
This term our School Talk Topic is: ‘’Tell me a story’. Can you tell a story about your day? Perhaps something you saw, heard or experienced. Can you elaborate or exaggerate events to create an exciting story?
This term our Class Talk Topic is: “Should every story be told?” Can you think of any times that stories shouldn’t be told? Are stories always told accurately, and what is the impact that this can have?

Animals Including Humans
Our topic this term is 'Animals including Humans'. In this topic we have learnt about the circulatory system, how water and nutrients travel through our body and we are planning an investigation looking at heart rate and exercise! Check out our posters about the circulatory system:
