'Surfers' Year 5

Welcome to Surfers!


The topics that the Year 5 pupils will be covering during the first half of the Spring Term (Term 3) can be seen below.


The pace plan for Year 5 for this half term can be seen below. Each pace plan tracks when particular areas of learning will be in focus across a term.


Curiosity Weeks 2020 have been enormous fun for Year 5 students. We've been to... The Fairground in model-making, dance, creative-writing and computing lessons. Here are a few photos of what we have been up to but there is also lots on display around the Year 5 area of school. Come and take a look!


The Surfers class are really enjoying the start to our Orienteering unit of work. They have been learning to read many different types of maps - from Ordnance Survey right through to funny faces!! 


Year 5 had a delicious Design Technology project to do this term - design and make a healthy, appetising smoothie. They really enjoyed the taste-testing and final end-results.


Year 5 were set the challenge to design and create the battle armour for a Viking chieftain. They learnt about the materials and features that Viking clothing would have and then had to protect their leader from attack by Erik the Viking. They really got into role!


Year 5 designed and created replica Anglo Saxon coins.

The Year 5 teachers have put together some useful links to websites which the children use for numeracy so they can practice at home.

Year 5 have new blogs.
