Year 5

We are Year 5. We have two classes; 5AR, whose teachers are Mrs Thornton-Allen & Mrs Rahman and 5S, whose teacher is Mrs Sharp. Read the Year 5 Curriculum and our latest newsletter.

Spring Term 2019:

This term our topic is: SHIPWRECKED!

Year 5 children will be working collaboratively to complete tasks to survive on a desert island after a shipwreck and will conclude the topic with a parent assembly to share their knowledge and skills they have acquired.  The children will be investigating atlases, how they work and learn how to locate countries and cities.  In Design & Technology, the children will be developing, planning and communicating their ideas for building a shelter; the children will be identifying and comparing a range of materials to find the most effective for their design.

Please see the Curriculum topic web above for further information regarding the curriculum for Year 5 for this term.


Autumn Term 2018: Trip to STEAM

Our topic was 'Lest We Forget' - the children spent time finding out about key events and the impact of WWI & WWII on the British people.  They learned about the roles of women and about the lives of children during these wars.  They also be researched photographs of Hungerford from both wars to compare with today.  The children also designed and evaluated a WWII cake, taking into account rations & availability of ingredients.

Year 5 children visited STEAM at Swindon in November to gain further insight into life as an evacuee in WW11; they really enjoyed dressing up as an WW11 evacuee to experience life as a child having to leave their family and move out to the country.
