Year Five Topics


In Year 5, we focus on a range of interesting and exciting topics in history, geography and science.


In Autumn, we study the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings during history lessons.  We use the film and book of 'How to Train Your Dragon' to stimulate their writing. 


During Spring is our local  study.  This involves the early settlement of Ripley and then its growth during Victorian Times due to the mines and Butterley Iron Works.  We also explore the Pentrich Revolution.  The geography of the area is examined and map skills explored


In Summer, our focus is on Europe.  We become travel agents and try to foster an enthusiasm for travel and exploration within the continent.  Finally in the last term we shoot off into space.  This also is the term where we support Year 6 in their production.


Thank you for visiting Year 5’s information page. If you’ve got any questions, just pop in and ask!
