Year 5

… to all our Year 5 children and their families!


Remember – our next topic is ‘Time Traveller’ and we will also be studying Lord Horatio Nelson.

Are we right to remember him as a hero? Why was he such an influential character? How has he left his mark on Great Yarmouth?

See you back at school on Monday 16th April.

Visit to Time and Tide!

Year 5 visited the Time and Tide and the Nelson Museum to learn about our local hero Lord Horatio Nelson, as part of our Time Traveller topic. Throughout the day we experienced life as a surgeon on board, were taught some battle techniques and got to try ship food!

Team Building

On Monday 26th March, Emma from Goldcrest came to lead some team building activities in Year 5. We took part in 2 challenges called Broken Robots and Ravine.

We also built shelters big enough to fit four people inside. We tried to make them weatherproof. We showed some excellent communication and co-operative skills.

A Day with the Ancient Egyptians

On Wednesday 21st February, Year 5 went to Norwich Castle Museum to spend a day with the Ancient Egyptians.

We studied a range of artefacts, learnt about mummification and even saw some real mummies! We also travelled back in time to ancient Egypt to see how boys and girls would have spent their days, and made collars using different coloured ‘jewels’.
