Welcome to our class blog!
For Year 5, this year marks the move for children from Lower to Upper Key Stage 2. It is an exciting and challenging year for your children. The essence of this year is to provide the children with many opportunities to gain in independence and to seek out and accept greater responsibility.
Here you can take a look at all the fantastic things we have been doing throughout the year. You will also find copies of children's termly topic leaflets, homework and spelling lists as well as links to key learning resources for the children to use outside of school.
Year 5 2022 - 2023
Autumn Term in Year 5
Year 5 have had a busy Autumn term filled with lots of fun and exciting activities! Take a look below to see what we have been up to.
Earth and Space
Our main theme this term is Earth and Space. We will be learning all about the solar system, NASA and the space race. Within English, we will be studying the book 'Hidden Figures'. As part of our experience lesson to begin this topic, a mobile planetarium visited us in school and provided us with an amazing planetarium show. This unique learning opportunity allowed us to explore the solar system and learn all about the wonders of space in an immersive environment! We had a great time and learnt lots of information to support us throughout our upcoming topic.
SNOW DAY ACTIVITIES
Snow Days offer a wonderful opportunity for the children to get outside and be physically active whilst exploring this beautiful and interesting weather phenomenon in all sorts of ways; as scientists, as artists, as geographers ...and as children.
As teachers, we have made the decision to embrace this as a wonderful opportunity for home learning when the children cannot safely come into school. Please find below, all sorts of ideas for learning activities that the children can do which are linked to the snow.
We have decided not to organise these under age-related headings. All of the activities are good fun and most are 'open-ended' enough that the children can explore them at the level which suits them.
