All about...

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!

Spring Term Topic 2019: One World

Welcome to the spring term! We are all looking forward to yet another exciting term in Year 5 with your amazing children.

Our topic this term is ‘One World’ - geography-led topic that will look first at our near neighbours in Europe during Spring 1 and then, cast our eyes further afield in Spring 2, as we examine some of the main global issues of our time. As part of this topic, the children will be looking at similarities and differences between the lives of children in other countries. We will also focus on some stories about a child’s experience of life as a refugee.  Please see topic overview below for more detail.

As a school, we always value your involvement and interest in your child’s learning. If you would like to suggest any visitors or places to visit that we could include in your child’s topic, please drop us a little note. You may also have relevant artefacts/ resources at home that you may be prepared to consider sharing with us for display or use in the classroom.
