Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

We love the topics we teach in year 5 and hope they inspire the children to think about and enjoy the world around them.

The year starts with ‘Delicious Dorset’, where we learn about the wonderful food in our county.  We take a visit into Weymouth and survey shops worker and visitors to find out their opinions.  In the autumn term we also visit the Weymouth Outdoor Education Centre, take part in fun, challenging activities.

The children enjoy becoming crime scene investigators, visiting the science labs and art rooms at the secondary school and making the most of all the school has to offer.

The children in Year 5 are ready to immerse themselves in our jammed-packed curriculum, where they can develop their academic skills, take on increasing responsibility for their learning and become confident independent learners.
