Who are we?


In the Year 5 class we provide many enriching and engaging experiences for all children. We ensure we have a mixture of practical and non- practical activities to ensure we meet all children needs. 


We use our growth mindset to retain a positive attitude to support us to feel happy, resilient and positive throughout our learning experience. We learn from our mistakes and try our best in all areas of the curriculum. 




What are we learning? 


This term is full of exciting and fun-packed learning! In Maths we will be starting the term off with place value.  In English we have started a new writing piece. Our first writing piece will be a warning tale, with a settings focus. Our new Guided Reading book is, "Room 13" written by Robert Swindells. We have made predictions on the book and we are looking forward to unravelling the story. This term in History, we are looking at the Maya Civilization. We have some really exciting Science lessons this term too. Each week, we will be conducting a mini experiment focusing on separating materials.
