Year 5 Spring Term 1
A predominantly science based project
Journey through space, the final frontier…Navigate beyond the sun, the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our solar system.
Investigate the eight planets- Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Take a look at the moon, a celestial body that orbits earth.
Investigate gravity and what happens when there is none!
Compare the time of day at different places on the earth and use GPS satellite to track hidden treasure. Get in a spin, making simple models of the solar system and listen the haunting sounds of space themed songs. Build and launch a rocket for an important test mission.
Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure that human kind has ever undertaken. Are we alone or is there other life forms out there?

Year 5 Spring Term 2
The Anglo Saxons
Watch out the Normans are coming!
A predominantly history based project
The Romans have gone! It is 410AD the Saxons wave their battle axes as they begin to invade Britain’s shores.
They sail from Denmark, Holland and Germany to a green and pleasant land, where battles were rife and fear reigned. Find out about the life of the Saxons, including how they lived and where they came from.
Make a Saxon mask or a Saxon long boat and decorate it with intricate patterns.
Learn how England was divided, ruled and farmed. Look at why rivers were so important to the new invaders and how they used the network of British rivers to support their developments.
We will also investigate the source of rivers and their routes to the coast.
Are you ready to shine a light on the dangerous and deadly Dark Ages…?
