Year 5 2019/20

Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome back to school!

This year, Mrs Blackett and Mr Clark will lead our Year 5 team; and we will be supported by Mr Newall and Mrs Newton. On Thursday afternoons, Mrs McGrath and Mr Reardon will be teaching.

Our PE days will be Monday and Friday in Mrs Blackett's class, and Tuesday and Friday Mr Clark's class, so you will need your PE kit for then.

As always, we look forward to working with you this year. If you have any questions, please come and speak to any member of the Y5 team.

Autumn 2 Term

In Autumn 2 we are focusing on our environment and the impact we have on it as individuals and a community.

Our learning journey title is:
'Can a footprint make a difference?'

In Art we will be looking at Matisse and using recycled materials to create an art piece.

Our Autumn 2 Learning

 

The children have been looking at the relationship of the sun, earth and moon.

As a class we discussed this and then made models of them from playdough and demonstrated how the earth orbits the sun and the moon orbits the earth.

 

Autumn 1 Term

During this half term, we are learning about the local history of Sheffield and surrounding areas. Our school learning journey question will be "Do Sheffielders have a steel core?"

We will be focusing particularly on the impact of the steel and coal industries of the past and will be complementing this with an exciting trip to the National Coal Mining Museum.

Our Autumn 1 Learning

What a fantastic start to the year. Year 5 has had a busy but successful half term. They have been focusing particularly on the impact of the steel and coal industries of the past and had an exciting trip to the National Coal Mining Museum.

The children enjoyed going down the mine and learning all about the different eras of mining. They were also able to see how the housing has changed over times and where fascinated that there were no bathrooms inside of the houses.

Year 5 also had some First Aid training where they learnt how to assess a situation and what to do in an emergency if someone was choking.

 

 

We have also appointed Mini Police in Year 5 and we had a talk about Dark Nights where Curtis came to talk about the safety of using fireworks and the law around their use.
