Dear Parent/ Carer,
As part of our next topic, we will be learning all about the Greek Legacy of the Olympics. For our Wow Day, on Monday 6th June 2016, we would ask that the children to dig through their wardrobes and wear clothing to represent their favourite sporting event e.g. golfer, footballer, tennis players, athlete.
We appreciate your support in making this day as enjoyable as possible for the children.
Should you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to speak to us.
Year 5 Team
On Wednesday 2nd March, Year 5 enjoyed a fantastic learning experience with a Viking visitor. They had a great time learning about the Viking way of life. Our Viking visitor said, "Last year I visited over 120 schools, out of all of them, you have been the best behaved and most enthused group I've come across with some budding actors. This all made my day enjoyable too!" The teachers would like to say a huge thank you to both the children and their parents/carers, for the outstanding effort made with costumes, shields and weapons. Year 5 are now fully immersed in their new topic.
During the start of the spring term, Year 5 will be exploring the topic of ‘Our World’. We will be focusing on geographical aspects of this topic such as continents, oceans, countries and the physical features. Through exploration of our local area we will make comparisons between Eye and a contrasting locality. In RE we will be learning ‘What can the stories and deities tell us about Hindus beliefs about God?’ and in PSHE we will focus on ‘Good to be me.’
We look forward to discovering what the children already know about the world we live in and what they are keen to learn more about.
Year 5 Team
Throughout the autumn term, Year 5 will be launching themselves into outer space. During this exciting term in our science lessons we will be finding out all about the effects of gravity, movement in space and the solar system. Already the children have enjoyed astronaut training, space food tasting and rocket investigations. In RE we will be learning “Why is Jesus an inspirational leader?” and in PSHE we will focus on New beginnings.”
This will be an exciting start to the year that we are sure the children will love.
Miss Sund and Mrs White
