Welcome to Year 5

Our topic this autumn: Trade, Tourism and Travel

This term, we will focus much of our learning on the influence trade, tourism and travel from around the world. This will give the children a firm understanding of their role as a global citizen. This is especially relevant in the current context of climate change and uncertainty due to Britain’s precarious position within Europe.

National Marine Aquarium – STEM Boat Building event

We are also taking part in a research project with Bath Spa University which will enable us to purchase more science resources for our school.


Literacy – persuasive travel writing, poetry and a narrative story related to travel.


Maths – place value (rounding, roman numerals, comparing, negative numbers and ordering numbers), addition and subtraction and statistics

P.E. – gymnastics and football skills sessions
