Power of Reading Texts     

The highly successful Power of Reading project enhances children’s pleasure in reading.  It raises

children’s achievement through literature and its creative use in the classroom.  This year we will

enjoy reading:







We also look at a range of non-fiction materials linked to our topics as well as books which

interest us.



Themes are designed to inspire children through an imaginative curriculum.  Each theme promotes:

·          Community cohesion

·      Enterprise skills

·      Environmental understanding

·      Spiritual and moral development

The themes are designed in line with the Curriculum 2000 and cover all of the current content for

Geography, History, Design & Technology and Art.  Each theme is designed to be used in

conjunction with ‘key skills’ to help teach them at the right level.  Our themes in Year 5 are:


Ancient Greece & Grand Designs

 Tudor Banquets & Tudor Times


This year our science topics are:
