Summer Term 2019

This term our topic is: TOMB RAIDERS!

This term Year 5 pupils will be discovering who the Ancient Egyptians were and what their achievements and beliefs were.  They will be finding out why they built the pyramids and understanding the structure and development of an ancient civilisation.  Their topic will commence with a visit from Mr Egypt, an expert archaeologist,  who will share his artefacts and experiences of Egypt with the children. The children will develop, plan and communicte ideas for building a museum artefact box which they will then construct and display in their own museum for parents to view.

Spring Term 2019

In the Spring term our topic wass: SHIPWRECKED!

Year 5 children worked collaboratively to complete tasks to survive on a desert island after a shipwreck and concluded the topic with a parent assembly to share their knowledge and skills they had acquired.  The children investigated atlases, how they work and learn how to locate countries and cities.  In Design & Technology, the children developed, planned and communicated their ideas for building a shelter; the children also identified and compared a range of materials to find the most effective for their design.

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.
