Welcome to Year 5 where you will find Mrs Davies and Mrs Leavesley
We are extremely excited to welcome you to class and are ready to get started with this half term’s exciting learning experiences!
During this half-term, Year 5 will enjoy a wide range of educational experiences through our current topic – ‘The Terrible Tudors!’ This topic will allow the children to explore key events and people that helped to shape British history. They will develop their historical knowledge, skills and thinking whilst investigation and learning about the Tudor monarchs; the lives of the rich and poor; the changes to religious law and about the lives and pastimes of the Tudor people. The children will also be creating their own portraits of some of the Tudor monarchs and will hopefully get the opportunity to design and make their own Tudor building.
Year 5 is also very lucky to have weekly keyboard sessions, in which they learn to play, read music, listen to and appraise music and compose their own pieces.
We have PE every Wednesday and the children are required to come to school in their PE kit on those days.
In year 5, children are provided with a reading book that will be given out on a Monday. Books should be returned to school on a Friday so that they can be quarantined, ready for the next week. Please ask, if your child is not bringing home their reading book. It is vital that our children read regularly in order to improve their fluency and comprehension.
As always, if there any questions or concerns regarding your child’s education, please contact school or contact Mrs Davies through Class Dojo.
