Welcome to Class 5
We are the oldest children in the school and we are made up of children in Year 5 and Year 6.
Our Learning Journey
This half term our Learning Journey is History based, we’ll imagine what it was like to be evacuated and live with a family other than our own. Using different source materials, we’ll learn about evacuation and write letters to our families ‘back home’. We’ll plot the Second World War’s events on a timeline and learn about rationing, Pearl Harbour and the Battle of Britain. From a range of sources, we’ll find out about children and school during the war and we’ll also learn about what it was like during the Blitz and think about how soldiers might have felt.
This term in art this term we will be looking at creating backgrounds using different materials including water colours and we will be creating our own silhouette scene of London during the Blitz. In DT, we will be looking at developing our food technology skills by creating our own savoury based food products which we create in the 1940’s
In RE we will be continuing our learning based around Judaism. In PSHE, we will be looking at the topic of money and we will be looking at spreadsheets in our computing lessons.
This term in Maths we will be learning about: multiplication and division, angles, and fractions.
Our PE days this term are Tuesday and Thursday and these will be with our sports coach.
Homework will continue to be set on Wednesdays although, on occasion, the children may also be given additional homework. The children will be given a new set of spelling on Monday of each week and will then be tested on these the following Monday.
