Our Spring Term topic is 'Explorers'.

The books we are studying are: 'Arthur and the Golden Rope' by Joe Stanton and 'Odd and the Frost Giants' by Neil Gaiman.

Many of our lessons are themed around our topic. In History, we are learning about the Viking invasion; in Design and Technology we are designing and constructing a moving car which could be used by explorers; in Art we are exploring form and texture by creating our own Viking dragon head sculptures; in Science we are studying 'Space'.


This term, Year 5 have PE on Tuesday and Thursday and we ask that children come to school in their PE clothes rather than their school uniform.

Weather dependant, they can wear their shorts and school coloured PE T- shirt and House PE sweatshirt. If the weather is cold, then track suit bottoms/leggings would be more suitable. Trainers are preferable to pumps as it is possible the children may be outdoors for some lessons.
