Year 5

Welcome back to school!

Indigo class are taught by Mrs Remington Davidson and Amethyst are taught by Mr Hill. Both classes are assisted by Miss Camper.

Indigo class should arrive at the main gates at 8.55 and be collected at 3.00. Amethyst should arrive at 8.50 and be collected at 2.55. Year 5 children can walk home alone if they have written permission from their parents or carers.

Both classes’ PE day is Monday – please arrive at school in your named PE kit. This term we have only one PE day.

Lost in Space

This term we’re tackling the big question ‘Is space exploration a waste of resources?’ We have begun our work on space with a ‘Wow Day’ where we advised the UK Space Agency on which worlds should be explored next!

Which planet, dwarf planet or moon do you think should be explored next?

Our space topic will continue after the half term and we’ll be developing our curiosity by asking and answering scientific questions.

How does the Earth move?

Why does the Earth have seasons?

Why does the Moon appear to change shape in the night sky?

Shakespeare Schools’ Foundation

We are also beginning work on our Shakespeare film which will be premiered on the 20th November – there will be more details to follow!
