Welcome to Year 5!
Mr Meikle Mrs Paxton Miss Waller Mrs Stickley
Our topic this term is To Infinity and Beyond. We will be learning about space, the planets and our solar system. We will also be finding out about some famous space explorers and thinking about the changes that these explorers have made to our lives. We have just enjoyed a trip to the 'Think Tank' in Birmingham, discovering more about the universe in the amazing Planetarium.
On Wednesday mornings, Mr Plummer visits school to teach us how to play djembes! We are having so much fun and hope that we get to perform for our parents later on in the year.
In RE lessons, we will be thinking about possible answers to the question: What is Faith? And thinking about how different religions and faiths might answer the question.
For our Science topic, we are learning about Earth and Space thinking about our world in relation to the other planets. We will be learning about day and night and phases of the moon and explain the science behind these phenomena!
Other exciting days…
On Thursday 1st February, we are welcoming our parents and family members in to take part in a Junk Modelling Extravaganza!
Some Year 5 children will also be away on the Alex Rider Trip… what a busy term!
