Terms 3 and 4: Spring Term
After Christmas we will be exploring some new aspects of learning. We will be finding out about the ancient caliphate in what is now Iraq, centred around Baghdad. We will also learn about Islam and will read and write some stories from this region including some of the Arabian Nights stories. Do you know Aladdin?
We will learn about gravity and space in Science and we'll be working with the With Flying Colours project again.
Our outlined learning plans are included here:
What a busy term! Everyone did incredibly well in the extended swimming bock, we hope you can make use of the free swim tickets the children brought home.
Here are a few of our photos from the With Flying Colours drama project from this term. The next block of work will be in January and the class will be working on their final performances in the summer term, these will be in 'pop up' theatres in Devonport and in school.
Year 5's teacher is Miss Pimlott and their teaching assistants are Mrs Hele, Mrs Thorne and Mrs Piggott. We welcome you to have a look through our page to see what we are getting up to this year.
Reminders: This year, PE is on Wednesday and Thursday so please make sure you have your PE kit on both days. Homework needs to be handed in on Friday.
