Year 5 2019 - 2020

Welcome to the Year 5 class page.

Spring Term 2020


It’s the start of a new term, a new year and a new decade and there’s lots to look forward to in the coming weeks in Year 5.

Some of you may have been to the cinema during the Christmas holidays to see a big Hollywood movie all about a group of fancy felines. So, to kick start our English work this term, we’ll be reading some poetry by T.S Eliot who loved to write about cats and what they got up to. We’ll be looking at some poems from the book ‘Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats’ and have a go at writing our own version of the poem ‘The Old Gumbie Cat’. Later on in the half term, we will be reading ‘Cosmic’ by Frank Cottrell Boyce as we prepare for our big Science topic, ‘Earth and Space’.

However, before we journey to infinity and beyond in Science, we will be exploring forces and the effect they have on the world around us. There will also be a bit of running around the playground attached to parachutes, which I’m sure will be great fun.

In March, we will take a trip to Jodrell Bank space exploration centre as part of our ‘Earth and Space’ topic, where we will have a go at designing and making our very own Mars Rover.

Mr Wade and some of Year 5 will be off to the Lake District National Park at the start of February for a five day residential to Hinning House. Bring your thermals, it’s going to be chilly!

In RE this term, we will be exploring Jesus as a teacher and looking at how Christians celebrate Easter.

All of this plus lots, lots more!

Don’t forget to follow the St Thomas’ Year 5 Twitter page for more information on what we are getting up to.
