Welcome to Year 5

Autumn topic 'A Life on the Ocean Wave'

Our exciting new topic ‘A Life on The Ocean Wave’ will begin with the children learning about seafaring throughout the Tudor period as well as seafaring in Plymouth - looking at the history and links Plymouth has with the Mayflower. 

We will also research many famous Seafarers; Sir Francis Drake, Sir Walter Raleigh, as well as the ‘Mayflower’ and the important role this had on Plymouth and America. 

Throughout this topic, children will be taught through skill based objectives which will allow the children to develop their research skills, map work and explore the diversity of events which have shaped our history.

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!
