Sir John Sherbrooke Junior School

We are a 'Take Care' school


At SJS we aim to teach a creative curriculum which engages the children and helps them to become the best learners they can be. This means, where possible, we link many of the different subjects to the termly topic theme. 


Alongside the termly topic, Maths is taught in blocks to allow the children to embed and deepen their learning and apply this understanding in a range of different ways. PE is taught by different specialised sports coaches as well as the class teacher. 


Our year 5 topic themes are:

Autumn Term:  The Ancient Greeks

Spring Term:  The Winter Olympics

Summer Term:  The Romans


Our science topics for year 5 are:

* Animals, including humans

* Space

* Electricity





Our computing topics for year 5 are:

* Game Development

* Cryptography

* Graphic Design

* Building Webpages


*Systems Architecture
