Year 5

We have a very exciting year planned for year 5. During our topic lessons, we will be learning all about WW2. We will look at how the war started, what life was like for the people of Britain and life of evacuees.

Our literacy is based around the novel The Wizard of Oz and the picture book The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr Morris Lessmore.  They are both adventure stories about a lonely character who gets swept up into a storm that leads to an amazing adventure. We will be writing, character descriptions, blurbs and the first chapter of both stories.


In science, we will be learning about Space. We will look at the Earth, Sun and Moon, night and day, the phases of the moon, Neil Armstrong and planets in our Solar system.
