Welcome to Year 5!
The Teacher in Year 5 is Miss Dean and the Teaching Assistants are Miss Murphy and Miss Furlong.
We have some fantastic things planned for this year as well as educational visits and trips to enhance our learning.
During the Autumn term, we will be travelling back in time and learning all about the Kingdom of Benin and Anglo-Saxons. We will examine how they lived and what life would have been like in them times. In Science we will be learning all about living things and their habitats which is very exciting because we will have a special educational visit from Zoolab where we will be able to learn more about the animals and carefully handle them. Also in Science we will be learning about properties and changing of materials. Our class books for this term is Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone and Dracula.
During the Spring term, we will be learning all about Fairtrade and in this topic we will be able to taste some tasty treats along the way. Another topic covered is Mayans, so again we will be travelling back in time to look at the Mayan civilisation and comparing South American Countries to our country. In science we will be learning about forces and we will be able to take our learning outdoors to carry out our experiences. Also in Science we will build upon our previous topic living things, as we will be learning about animals including humans. We will be comparing ourselves to animals, to see what we have in common and what we have that animals do not have or need. Our class books for this term is Creakers and The Titanic.
During the Summer term, we will be putting our space suits on ready to explore Earth and Space. We will be using google Earth to support our learning so we can view Earth from space, which is very exciting. We will also be learning all about Sir Isaac Newton and other famous scientists and investors and discover what they are all famous for. Our class books for this term is Cosmic and The Boy at the Back of the Class.
We have a super exciting year planned Year 5 and I am looking forward to being your teacher!
