Welcome to Year 5’s page where lots of exciting and interesting new learning is taking place!
Throughout the school year we will be exploring a wide range of exciting themes and topics.
We have two classes in Year 5: Class 5RH taught by Mrs Hendley and 5B taught by Miss Bean. We are also extremely lucky to have the support of Mrs Savage, who will work alongside the teachers to support the children and their development.
In addition to covering a variety of subjects’ in year 5, we participate in the Linking School Project pairing up with another year 5 class from a different school. This gives our children the opportunity to develop their social skills in a different learning environment. All children are supported through year 5 and are encouraged to work to the very best of their ability. We feel it is essential that children have a positive growth mindset to learning.
Highlights for this half term
Year 5 have had a wonderful start to the new school year. We are looking forward to the driver ‘Stand up and being counted’ giving us an opportunity to look back History. We will also be reading a class text called ‘Wolf Wilder’, which will provide us with some fantastic opportunities to develop our writing skills. This also links in nicely to our PSHCE and music lessons with a focus on Martin Luther King and The Greatest Showman. We plan to end the half term with a fantastic textiles activity creating our own bunting to represent who we are.
In maths, we will develop our understanding of place value for numbers up to 1 million. We will refine our calculation skills, practising both formal and mental strategies.
Things to look forward to …
In Science, we will be focusing our learning on Earth and Space and in our topic lessons will be focused on our local area and provide us with an opportunity to look at rural and urban landscapes.
