Year 5 Topic

Summer Term 2018

Year 5 are studying "The Awesome Egyptians". They immersed themselves in their new topic by creating a topic display, making a collage of the River Nile, creating pyramids out of cuboids and reeds with notes about what they would like to find out.

‘How would you reinvent a school blazer to give it a new life?’ is the challenge which has faced Year 5  –  they have been working in small groups to show off their innovative and creative skills. The children have been busy planning their work for this competition – run by John Lewis -  with the hope of winning a 3D printer for Castlewood School!


What can we change the blazer into?

Spring Term 2018

Year 5 were on a "Polar Adventure" this term; they started their  topic with an ice sphere melting to reveal a message from Sir Ernest Shackleton which led onto writing a persuasive letter applying to be part of his crew on The Endurance.

What will be inside?


Let's Apply!

The children followed instructions to make a penguin corner bookmark in preparation for writing instructions themselves.


Taking great care!

Autumn Term 2017

Year 5 had a very special visitor: a WW2 evacuee.  Molly told them all about her experiences when she was evacuated from Portsmouth to Loxwood.

To commemorate Remembrance Day, the children wrote some thought-provoking poems which they put on display in the classroom.

We will remember them.

Year 5 studied World War II. They went for a trip on The Bluebell Railway dressed as evacuees to experience life in the early 1940s.
