Year 5 2023 - 2024
At the heart of everything is a personalised approach to each unique individual as part of our Christian Community. The strong family ethos ensures that all children and staff feel valued, respected and grow in self-confidence. Enthusiastic and caring staff with high expectations, demonstrate care of the whole child. Through God’s guidance we encourage each and every child to
'let their light shine'.
Welcome to year 5!
This term, we will be joing by Ms Pack our assoicate teacher.
Mrs Curwen and Mrs Cheers will be our teaching assistants in year 5.
Our text for the first half of the autumn term is, 'Queen of Falls' by Chris Van Allsburg.
We will use this text as inspiration for our learning across the curriculum. We will explore Mexico, Central and South America and learn about the Ancient Maya Civilisation from a visiting expert!
In our reading lessons, we will be learning about our courageous advocate Rigoberta Menchu and more fearless females who have changed history.
The topic web (which can be downloaded below) provides an overview of what we will be learning across the curriculum.
PE lessons will be on Tuesday and Wednesdays. Please come to school dressed in PE kit on these days. We will be outside whenever possible, so please ensure you are dressed for the weather!
I am looking forward to an exciting term with you all.
Our Class Charter
As a rights respecting school, one of the first activities completed in September is our Class Charter. The children choose a number of articles which they feel must be met at school. It is then discussed how the adults (duty bearers) and the pupils (rights holders) in school ensure that these rights are met. Have a look at our class charter below.
