Year 5 Curriculum overview

Some of the wonderful learning experiences we had included:

Drama Project – Autumn Term

Year 5 performed a play based on ‘Sedako and the 1000 Cranes’ which focusses on the message of ‘Peace’. We worked on a programme together with the drama teacher from City Heights E-ACT Academy to prepare for this wonderful performance. Our teacher and teaching assistants also helped us to prepare for this performance. It all culminated in an evening performance at City Heights which was attended by over a hundred parents! On the evening, we were joined by pupils from four other local schools, including Christchurch CoE School and Saint Luke’s, as they were also taking part. An enjoyable time was had by all!
