Key Information

In Year Five, pupils study topics which encourage debating, justification and exploration of current issues!

Our topics are Ancient Greece, Cool Planet and African Heroes. As part of our learning, we study contemporary fiction, including work by Shaun Tan, Siobhan O’Dowd and Beverley Naidoo. We also learn about democracy (including a comparison of modern British and Ancient Greek systems of government) and global warming (and what we can do to help to protect the planet). As part of our African Heroes topic, we learn about apartheid and the life and work of Nelson Mandela. In Science, we are learning all about Earth and Space.

This year, we have visited the Houses of Parliament and received a visit from Neil Coyle, our MP and worked with ‘Our Hut’ on a cross-curricular arts project. In the Summer term, we will be visiting the Horniman Museum as part of our learning about the Kingdom of Ancient Benin.
