Welcome to Year 5

Spring topic 'Survival of the Fittest'

Our exciting new topic ‘Survival of the Fittest’ will begin with both a Geography and History focus.  The children will learn of famous Antarctic explorers, primarily focusing on Sir Ernest Shackleton and his expedition to Antarctica in 1914.   

Throughout the first half of the Spring term, the children will be researching various mountains and the water cycle, whilst developing their Geographical skills across many areas. The children will become part of an expedition crew and have to complete various training to become the ultimate Antarctic explorers. 

After half term, the children will start to learn all about the Vikings.  More information on this will appear on the website nearer the time. 

Please see the curriculum letter for more information on all the exciting learning taking place this term.  Check back soon for photographs of our adventures!
