Welcome to Year 5
This term we are using our imagination to take us back to The Victorians. We have been learning about school life for both the rich and poor families. As well as this we have been learning all about the inventions such as: the telephone, the light bulb and the steam train.
The homework schedule is as follows:-

You need to read 3 times a week and get an adult to write in your reading journal to show you have read.
This term, in PSHE, we have been learning about what makes an effective learner. We decided we would teach our skills to a partner. The skills included:
Learning different skipping techniques, hula hooping, basketball and football skills, ventriloquism, tennis skills, learning to play the piano and counting to ten in German!
Everyone did very well and there are photos in our class gallery for you to look at.
This week we had a visit from K'NEX and learnt that we are all engineers. We were given a huge challenge: to design and create a helmet- with special features for extra points! We worked in pairs and used all of our learning super powers: cooperation, reflectiveness, resourcefulness and perseverence. Go over to our class gallery page to see our end results.
Well done to Connor and Cameron who won the challenge!
We have been lucky enough to have chicks in our school. This week we learnt about the life cycle of a hen (and had a little cuddle too). Have a look at our class gallery to see our photos.
