Welcome our Year 5 webpage. We have three classes in the year group and these are taught by Miss Croker, Miss Potter , Miss Morley and Mrs Stalker. We have some lovely teaching assistants called Mrs Felix and Mrs Rys.
The highlight of our week is Thursday morning where we all take part in music lessons. We are being taught how to play the steel pans by Mary Genis from Culture Mix Arts. On a Friday afternoon, we are lucky enough to have a specialist art teacher and coaches, who come in and do our PE with us
We have another exciting opportunity this year as well. The children are part of a JDO project. This project sees our children partnered up with another child in an American school. They have each been allocated a chrome book, which they can use anytime and we are learning from each other and taking part in collaborative projects.
Our day consists of a maths and literacy lesson in the morning and topic lessons in the afternoon. This term we are studying the lifecycles of mammals, amphibians and birds. We are also learning about the Anglo Saxons.
