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 a topic which looks at the battle for the English throne in 1066 and the study of how castles shaped England.  Later children learn about the local history of thieves and rogues and also study the local area and find out about Dorset and its agricultural links. They will enjoy finding out about Ancient Egypt and enhancing their map reading skills.

In the autumn term we also visit the Weymouth Outdoor Education Centre, take part in fun, challenging activities.

The children enjoy 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.
