Year 5

This term our topic is “Do we make the most of what’s on our doorstep?”. We will have a geography and science focus, looking at natural habitats, life cycles, food chains and classifications. We will use our outdoor learning spaces as much as possible to support this. Our sessions with Unique Voices has ended unfortunately but we finished with a filmed session in school! Hopefully you can make it to the Colston Hall on 14th May to see what the children have been doing. If you haven’t already, can you ensure consent forms for filming have been returned to us. We launched our “Slippers to School” programme this week. We’ve already seen a difference in class and we hope to continue this for the rest of the term! Finally, can you please ensure children have correct PE kit in school. PE is on Monday and Friday.

Displays and Children’s Work
Take a look at some of our work and sometimes us in the classroom. You are always welcome to come into school and take a closer look. You can see from the displays in our classrooms the variety of topics we cover. As the year progresses, the displays change. By July, you will be able to see the whole range of subjects we have covered. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
