Year 5

Life in Year 5

In Year 5, we seek to provide your children with many unique and unforgettable experiences as well as ensuring that they learn and develop of a range of skills through some exciting and inspiring topics!

As with all learning at Glebe, our aim is to make it ‘irresistible’ and Year 5 is certainly no exception! We hope to inspire your lovely children with learning opportunities such as our Roman Day supported by a workshop delivered by the fabulous Rainbow Theatre. In the Autumn Term, as part of our Invaders and Settlers topic, we also enjoy a trip to Bignor Roman Villa to see first-hand what daily life was like in Roman Britain.

A change of time period for the Spring Term as we come bang up to date with a study of Europe and the Wider World in our One World topic. The learning at this time involves a close look at many topical global issues such as the growing threat of plastic in our oceans, poaching animals such as the rhino to extinction and the various issues surrounding the refugee crisis.

Then, in the Summer Term, we say a fond farewell to beautiful planet Earth as we blast off into the stratosphere with our Lost in Space topic! The children will enjoy a fact-packed, fun-filled Space Day and a truly exciting visit to a mobile planetarium – which is, quite simply, out of this world!

So much to look forward to in the year ahead – therefore, tighten your seatbelts, children and get ready for the ride!

Summer Term Topic 2019: Lost in Space

Amazingly, we have arrived at your child’s third and final term in Year 5! It is hard to believe how quickly the time has raced by! We are now looking forward to starting work on this term’s topic ‘Lost in Space!’ In order to create a truly stunning start for our learning, we launched this Science themed topic with an exciting SPACE DAY on Wednesday, 1st May. On the day itself, the children took part in a range of space-related activities which also included a visit to a mobile planetarium allowing us to do our own little bit of stargazing! 

 Our space theme will link to several subjects across the curriculum: You can see from our topic overview below that we have made many links across our curriculum areas to ensure the children get a full range of exciting experiences.
