We have lots of very exciting things planned for this term in Year 5! We are sure that the children will get as involved as they always do, making the very most of their learning.

‘To Infinity and Beyond’ is our new topic all about Space and our Solar System.

 

Please keep checking the Year 5 webpage to see photos of the wonderful learning that takes place.

"We arrived at school and split into groups: 1, 2 and 3. We got on the coach and we we arrived, we put our coats and lunches away and followed the adults in charge into four different zones: Tropical, Subtropical, Arid and Mediterranean. We had clipboards with question sheets that could only be answered by looking at nearby plants and trees in each section. Once we had finished, we went outside to compare answers. After that, we headed down to play in the park as a treat for such good behaviour. We then sat in the park to have our lunch where we saw beautiful, elegant peacocks. Once we had eaten, we were taken back inside and up a tall, spiral staircase then into a room to look at and feel some animals such as corn snakes and chameleons."

To start our topic of fractions in Maths, we made our own fraction walls, these then helped us to find equivalent fractions.

This week our Year 5 children made an educational trip to the Ghamkol Sharif Mosque and the Islamic Experience Exhibition, in Birmingham, building on their learning in RE lessons. They had a tour of the mosque and, at the exhibition, learned more about how Muslims practice their faith and about their contributions to science and architecture. There was the opportunity to dress in Arabian costume and the children got their names written in Arabic. They enjoyed the day, describing the ornate interior of the mosque as ‘exquisite’ and saying the visit had given them ‘a different perspective’.
