Synopsis of Year 5 topics

 

Autumn Term

Off With Her Head!

Travel back in time to the 1500s and meet the terrifying Tudors, a domineering dynasty that changed our history.  Discover an oppulent court where dancing and singing goes hand in hand with swift falls from favour - and even swifter falling of heads!

Flex your muscles and become a criminal investigator.  Will you find out the facts or will the evidence from the past bemuse you? 

 

 

Stargazers

Journey through space, the final frontier... Navigate beyond the Sun, the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our solar system!

Investigate the eight planets - Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Take a look at the Moon, a celestial body that orbits Earth.

Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure that humankind has ever undertaken. Are we alone or are there other life forms out there?

 

Spring Term

Alchemy Island

It’s time to suspend your disbelief and open your mind. We’re going on a magical journey to Alchemy Island! Adventure through portals and discover the properties of unusual and strange materials.

You’ve got your map, co-ordinates and everything else you need to make your way across Alchemy Island. Don’t forget to pack your imagination!

Got your suitcase ready? Then let the journey begin...

 

Scream Machine

Roll up, roll up! You’re going on a day trip to a theme park to soak up the unique sights, smells and sounds of the fair.
Learn about the science behind roller coasters.

Okay, ready to ride? Don’t forget to scream if you want to go faster!

 

Summer Term

Allotments

Let’s grow! A crispy carrot, a luscious lettuce or a tasty tomato. Dig deep and put your back into it, making your own tubs and planters and nurturing your greens.

After all that hard work have your fingers gone green?
