Year 5

We are authors!

This term we read 'Where My Wellies take Me' by Clare and Michael Morpurgo. This inspired us to write and publish our own descriptive recounts of a walk around Bideford including a poem and illustration. They are now on display in the Year 5 area and we think they are absolutely fab. There are many budding authors, poets and illustrators among us. Come and take a look when you can!




Autumn 2 - What is the Mayan legacy?


This term we are historians. We began the term as archaeologists and discovered artefacts that gave us clues about Mayan life.

This term we are learning about...

Term 1: Can we save the Rainforest? 

This term we are working towards creating a documentary about the rainforest and how we can help to protect it. This project is a mix of geography, art, DT, and music.


We started with a hook day experiencing rainforest culture; we tried food, made headdresses, discovered the animals and made sounds to create a rainstorm.


Have a look at the fun we had...
