Welcome to Year 5
Mrs D White (Y5 teacher)
Mrs J Jones (LSA)
In Year Five, the children enjoy learning in a variety of ways through a richly creative, broad and balanced curriculum. We use cross curricular learning themes in which subjects overlap to reinforce and compliment each other. We aim to develop knowledge, concepts, skills, dispositions and attitudes necessary for the child's whole development. We embrace 'Learning Without Limits' where children are not put into 'boxes' but are given the chance to surprise us - and themselves - about what they can achieve.

TERM 5&6 2021: WHAT IS OUR PLACE IN SPACE?
This term our new project is, 'What is our place in space?'. During this project, we are going to be asking and trying to answer many questions! Here are just some of them:
Where are we in space? Is there life beyond our planet? What is orbit?
How does rotation affect night and day? Could we live on Mars? Why would we need to?
What would it be like to be an astronaut? How do the Earth and space affect each other?
If you have any ideas or answers to any of these exploratory questions, then please email us via the office! We will keep you updated with our progress!
Everyone had the most fantastic time. We watched some of our favourite films in our PJs and were relaxing with our pillows and blankets. We were taught the skills of using a bow and arrow and then had a battle with different teams. After that, we had a fabulous time playing with the water and got everyone wet! Finally, we also had fish and chips and games on the school field when everyone had gone home. It was certainly a day to remember for all.
Learning About The Planets
We have been researching to find out information about the different planets. We have discovered that they are all very different and used fruit to help us to understand about the different sizes and the distance away from the sun.
Year 5 are taking part in the daily mile. It is helping us to keep healthy and is good for our concentration and mental health. We are getting faster and building our stamina every day.
Year 5 took part in a fantastic team building afternoon. We had to work together as a team and use our problem solving skills in order to achieve a successful result. Everyone had great fun!
