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 ‘Food Around the World’, where we learn about the wonderful foods from around the world and international trade.  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.
