Year 5: Mrs Waller & Mrs Burch

Welcome to Year 5.
 
We have a very exciting yet challenging year ahead, with lots of engaging learning opportunities and interesting topics to learn about. We will begin the year with Anglo-Saxons, how they came to settle in Britain and when and why they converted from Paganism to Christianity. Later in the year, we will be learning about Eastern Europe, the Mayan civilisation and exploring the development of earthquakes and volcanoes.
 
Please feel free to look at the curriculum overview – which will explain what your child will be learning each term.
 
In Year 5, we aim to provide lot of opportunities for the children to take more responsibility and develop their independence. With this in mind, they are encouraged to bring in their reading books every day. Once the book has been read, they can choose a new book from our class library.
 
During the spring term, we will also be having the opportunity to visit the Scout Centre at Woodhouse where we will be putting our team work skills (and our nerve!) to the test in a range of exciting outdoor activities. This is always a big highlight for the children as they get to challenge themselves and have lots of fun. Watching their teachers take part in the activities can be quite funny too!
 
We’re excited for the busy, fun filled year we have ahead of us!
