Welcome to Year 5!

This year we will be learning all about the human body and the circulatory system, as well as life during the plague before becoming experts about Mexico in the summer term! We are planning some inspiring and creative learning opportunities, which we are sure our children will love! 

What makes your heart beat faster? 

During the Autumn term, we will be learning about the circulatory system, including how the heart works, what impact exercise has on the body and how to keep the heart healthy. We will also be thinking about people's rights and responsibilities around keeping healthy, including discussing heart transplants through our class text, Pig Heart Boy. 

Our Key Questions for Learning 

  • Which organs make up the circulatory system?

  • What is the purpose of veins?

  • Which exercise will create the fastest pulse rate?

  • What is the function of blood?

  • What are the names of the different types of blood vessels?

  • What substances can harm the body?

Our Citizenship Questions
