Summer 1


To begin our new Revolution topic we learnt about King Henry VIII and his wives through a visit to Hampton Court Palace. We saw what revolutionary changes King Henry made to England and were able to take part in a history workshop with a real Tudor expert! 

Spring 2

Discovering Space!

Pupils have had a brilliant time learning about out solar system in this science led unit. They have also read 'The War of the Worlds' book and been inspired to make their own tripod alien spaceships. A real highlight was even baking alien-themed bread!

Spring 1

Discovering Ancient Egypt!

We have launched into our new topic of 'Discoveries' by investigating what lies within the Ancient Egyptian tomb of the pharaoh Tutankhamun. Pupils were able to explore hieroglyphics as well as the ancient treasures within the tomb, they even created an Egyptian dance! 

Autumn 2

An Australian Odyssey

Pupils have been discovering the epic life cycles and journeys Australian animals go on while living in the outback. They have written some amazing non-chronological reports and our expert, Kendra (who is living in Australia), has selected her favourites from the year group.  

Our top Australian writers were selected and rewarded for their detailed and informative writing all about Australian animals!

River Studies Trip - Friday 23rd September 2022

Year 5 were able to visit a small stream in Selborne Village where some fantastic geography field work was conducted. Pupils measured the width and depth of the stream and were able to measure the velocity of the current. Then came the wildlife - pupils were able to catch and study creatures who live in the water. They also saw for themselves the impact of erosion around a river-bed and deposition in real life. Further studies of the valley were taken from up high above the zig-zag path dug out by Gilbert White himself in 1753 and we had some amazing views! Pupils then took on an orienteering challenge and used their compass correctly to discover the hidden messages around the gardens. A fantastic trip - thank you to everyone who helped.

Year 5 have been exploring how to stay safe online through this game. (Click to play)
