Our main topics in Year 5 are ‘Anglo-Saxons and Vikings’, ‘Earth and Space’ and ‘The Natural Environment’. To enhance our science topic we enjoy a trip to the Winchester Science Centre, where the children have the chance to experience a flight through the universe and a variety of interactive science exhibits. In English, the children enjoy texts by Michael Morpurgo and Philip Pullman and create playscripts, non-chronological reports and explore poetry. We examine ordnance survey maps in detail and move onto rivers and coasts later in the year. The children create Viking sculptures during one of our art units and develop new apple products in D.T. There are so many other highlights so please check our Topic Webs below!
