Year 5 2019 - 2020

Welcome to the Year 5 class page.

Autumn Term 2019 

Hello one and all! Here we are once again at the beginning of another new school year – and what an exciting one we have ahead of us.

We kick off September with history, in which we will take a look at the ancient Mayan civilisation of South America. We’ll study who they were; how and where they lived and what society was like.

Our English, Art, Computing and DT work will take us north of the Mayans as we focus on the Native Americans of North America. We’ll study and research several tribes and create non-chronological reports to showcase our learning, after which we will look at the story of Pocahontas. In Art and Computing, we will be creating our own Native American patterns and finish off the topic by designing and making our very own dream catchers in DT.

In RE will be answering the question 'How and why do Christians read the Bible?' We will learn about several different versions of the Bible and inverstigate how the same stories and passages are written in them - is the language used the same and if not, why not?

We’ll be getting very messy in Science as we make Oobleck as part of our topic on the Properties and Changes of Materials.

Towards the end of half term, we’ll begin preparations for the Year 5 Christmas Musical, which this year features the songs of a certain Swedish pop group that some of you may be familiar with!

All in all, it looks set to be a fun packed and busy start to Year 5!

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone back in the classroom again, eager to learn and ready for the year ahead.

Mr. Wade
