The Gainsborough Charles Baines Community Primary School

Together we achieve

Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 page!

During the first term in Year 5, the children's main two topics will be The Pharaohs and Off with her Head! (The Tudors). We have recently finished our Ancient Egyptian topic and we really enjoyed making canopic jars as the topic came to an end. This term, we have been learning all about Henry VIII and his 6 wives. We have recently been on a trip to Gainsborough Old Hall where we were given inspiration to create a non-chronological report all about the Hall. 


We have made some Tudor Houses which look amazing! Well done to all the children who have worked so hard to make their Tudor house with incredible detail! Next term we will be learning more about the amazing Universe! 'Stargazers' will help us understand the Earth and all that surrounds it. 


I hope everyone has an amazing Christmas and New Year and I am looking forward to seeing you all in 2022!


All the best

Mr White
