Happy New Year! Welcome to 2020.
Year 5 have returned refreshed, excited and ready to explore our Spring Term topic 'DOWN IN THE JUNGLE'.
Please see our latest newsletter and curriculum poster for details.
Welcome to Year 5.
We are excited to begin our Autumn term with our topic 'Shhh, Walls Have Ears',
a World War 2 theme that will embark on a mission that covers local history links, war associated literature alongside the arts inspired and performed from that time period.
Furthermore, our new Year 5 pupils will soon embark on a host of 'Widening Horizons'
career based educational visits and workshops.
See our Autumn Curriculum Poster and Letter for further details.
To bring our topic to a close, Year 5 and 6 joined together for a VE Party! We had an indoor street party, and an afternoon full of singing, dancing, fun and cake!
Fire safety visit
Today we were lucky enough to have a visit from some firefighters from Greenbank fire station. They talked to us about fire safety in the home, and things we should do and know to help us stay safe. We also learnt about the dangers caused by hoax calls and what to do if we ever find a fire. Here are some questions we’ve been asking, can you answer them all? See below for the answers!
Have you answered them all? Check the answer key below to see if you were right!
Outdoor PE: Football Skills
This term, Year 5 has been fortunate to have a coach from Stoke Damerel College coming in to teach us football skills and tactics. So far they have learnt a range of warm up exercises, alongside a multitude of individual, partner and team ball control skills including: dribbling, passing, receiving and stopping together with pressure and blocking techniques.
Maths: Place Value
During this Autumn term, we have had a big focus on Place Value in our Maths lessons. To consolidate our learning, in small groups, we had a go at creating a vast selection on 2, 3 and 4 digit values of Roman Numerals on the school playground.
