Aspire Believe Achieve

Year Five and Year Six

We are looking forward to an exciting term in Years 5 and 6!


Our topic this term is all about Space and Stargazing and we are going to be taking a detailed look at what living in space is really like.


The children will have the chance to explore the final frontier in both their science and topic learning and will create a meal for an astronaut in design technology.


We are also very excited to be visiting the Planetarium at Think Tank later in the term. I wonder how many of the constellations and planets we will recognise.



Year 5 and 6 have had a great half term studying the Ancient Greeks.


They have been learning about myths and legends, designing Greek artworks and especially enjoyed their visit from the History Man.


Have a look at our photos below to see what we have been up to.

Welcome Back to the Spring Term in Year 5 and 6


We are travelling further back in time this term to find out about Ancient Greece in our new topic

The Bold, The Brave and The Brilliant.

There will be lots of opportunities to practise our geographical skills too, as we study this fascinating country and culture both in the past and today.

Welcome to the Autumn term in Year 5 and 6


We have already started working hard on our topic:

Off With Their Heads!


The children will be finding out more about Tudor times and the dangers and challenges of living in past times. Our school trip this term will be to Tudor House in Worcester, where we will experience first hand some of the hardships of Tudor life in our local area.


To find out more read our Curriculum Newsletters below.



Tudor House Visits


Year 6 had a brilliant time at Tudor house today. The children were able to get dressed in Tudor clothes, have a go at weaving, learn more about Tudor buildings and play some Tudor games. 


The Tudor house staff were very knowledgeable and the children asked some very interesting questions.


Can you find out how many dresses Elizabeth the first had?
