All About Year 4 and 5

In Year 4 we continue to build upon the knowledge and skills they have learnt in previous years. The children will be involved with a variety of topic work throughout the year.

Year 5 marks the move for children from lower to upper Key Stage 2. This year is where we provide children with opportunities to gain independence and to seek out, and accept, greater responsibility.

Term 1 and 2

We are Historians

This term, Upper Key Stage 2 will venture back to the past to explore World War II. They will discover the events which led up to the declaration of war; the significant individuals that were involved in controlling the conflict; and the allies and axis of Britain. They will understand and respond to the question…’What was life like during the war for those in Britain?’ To answer these questions, they will research the ideas of rationing, evacuation and the Battle of Britain. They will respond through writing newspaper articles and biographies on Sir William Churchill, Neville Chamberlain or Adolf Hitler. They will make gas masks; create war time meals and explore military uniforms and design their own.

Term 3 and 4

We are Scientists


This term, Class 7, 8 and 9 will be reading ‘Percy Jackson and the Lightning thief’ by Rick Riordan. This exciting text, will allow us to delve into the world of the Ancient Greeks. We will understand everyday life, society and the rise of democracy. By reading Greek myths, we will explore Greek mythology and how it may have shaped belief with the powerful Gods and Goddesses. We will locate Greece on a world map and understand why people love to visit it, as a holiday destination, today.  Our writing will be fuelled by our investigations and we will create recounts, our own Greek myths, non-chronological reports, poetry, balanced arguments and explanations. Join our journey to Greece then and Greece now!

Term 5 and 6

We are Explorers

The Amazing Americas! Come with us to explore and discover these two opposing continents. Compare and contrast: their natural and man-made environments; the people and their cultures; the foods from across the countries; and the climates, which make you cool and sizzle.

With the additional support of the text, 'Holes' by Louis Sachar, Classes 7, 8 and 9 will report their learning and express  their ideas through: informal letter writing; non-chronological reports; postcards; and narrative writing with the theme of adventure.

So grab your passport and come with us to North and South America to take in the sights, sounds and get lost in the culture. LET’S GO!
