Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to 5KH and 5RM. In Year 5 there are lots of people who help you with your learning – Mrs McDermott, Ms Hodgson, Mrs Sells, Mr Simmonds, Mrs Baines and Miss Robson.


Our curriculum topic in Spring 1st is “Rivers and Coasts Year 5 will be learning about the features of rivers, how rivers are formed, aspects of physical geography such as erosion and how v-shaped valleys and waterfalls are formed and looking at examples of these. We will locate important rivers in UK counties and learn more about human geography, including types of settlement and land use, economic activity including trade links, and the distribution of natural resources including energy, food, minerals and water.

Our Science topic is Materials. We will be learning about the different properties of materials and testing them for their hardness, solubility, transparency and conductivity. We will be dissolving solids in liquid to form a solution and learning how to recover a substance. Using our knowledge of solids, liquids and gases we will decide how mixtures might be separated, including through filtering, sieving and evaporating and we will give reasons, based on evidence from comparative and fair tests, for the particular uses of everyday materials, including metals, wood and plastic.
