Year 5

Saints Class Bubble


In Saints Class over the last three weeks, we have been enjoying    learning about Space, Mapping and The World Around Us. These themes have helped us to explore a variety of topics, as well as provide a focus for English. We have also enjoyed working on new skills in our afternoon PE sessions with lacrosse, football and multi-skills explored so far.





Whilst exploring Space,  we made Art based on Rockets by artist Peter Thorpe.



In our topic of The World Around Us, we made plastic in the form of Slime, in order to understand how plastic is made and the problem plastic pollution is having on our environment.








During Mapping, we made our own Treasure Map complete with tea staining, monsters and treasure. Well done to everyone who used their knowledge of compass directions to successfully complete a treasure hunt!

Turbulent Tudors


This term Year 5 will be learning about the Turbulent Tudors. We will be undertaking an extended chronological study of the Tudors, using primary and secondary sources to find out what Henry the VIII was really like and making comparisons between the past and the present.




Year 5 Tudor Interactive Play

Year 5 travelled back in time to the Tudor period with our ‘Steps In Time’ interactive play, last Friday. The children had a wonderful time learning about the different Kings and Queens and what life was like in Tudor times. We met Henry the VII, Henry VIII and his six wives, Queen Elizabeth I and Sir Francis Drake. We also enjoyed some Tudor dancing and learnt about the Spanish Armada and what life was like on a tudor ship.
