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.
