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
This term our School Talk Topic is: ‘’Celebrating differences’. Can you think about the things that make us similar and different? What is great about that? How can we celebrate each other's uniqueness?
This term our Class Talk Topic is: “Is it right to interfere in foreign affairs?” We will be watching Newsround every day to develop our understanding of current events.We will be trying to answer this question through our 3-week homework projects.
We all had a great day today! It was lovely to see the children dressed up and feeling inspired by their reading books.
We completed fun reading activities, like a reading scavenger hunt, a book character 'Guess Who' game and wrote letters to our favourite authors.
In the afternoon, we made a reading buddy with a Year 1 and shared some of our favourite stories together. We then decorated our potatoes to look like a book character- which was lots of fun!

In science this term we have been trying to answer the question, "should governments penalise people for unhealthy lifestyles?"
Have a look at some of our arguments! We took part in a debate where we tried to persuade people to agree with us. We are also writing persuasive letters in our English lessons.
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:
