Cradle Hill Community Primary School


Welcome to Year 5!

Our Topics

In year 5 we ensure that learning remains fun and fulfilling, whilst maintaining the rigor that is needed to ensure the school’s standards remain high. 

The children's learning takes them all over the world in Year 5 in the following learning journeys:

Term 1 - Walking with Egyptians

Term 2 - It’s a Kind Of Magic

Term 3 - Final Frontier

Term 4 - Around the World in 80 days

Term 5 – Off with their Heads!

Term 6 – The Journey of Life

 We will be teaching these through a cross curricular approach so that the children are immersed into each topic.

Term 1 - Walking with Egyptians

Creative History Workshop

On Wednesday 26th September, Year 5 were visited by Creative History for an exciting Ancient Egyptian Workshop with Marcus Dilly.

It was full of facts, laughter, myths and body organs aplenty in a very interactive show looking at a truly amazing culture. The children were also involved in singing, dancing and acting which was brilliant!
