Welcome to Year 5
Class Teacher: Mrs Nicola Woollard. Mr Foyle on a Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon.

In the Summer Term in Year 5 we will be starting a new topic of 'Groundbreaking Greeks' - all things Ancient Greece!
This project teaches children about developments and changes over six periods of ancient Greek history, focusing on the city state of Athens in the Classical age, and exploring the lasting legacy of ancient Greece.
In maths we will continue our learning journey into fractions, decimals and percentages and then moving on to properties of shape, converting units and position and direction.
Science this term is focused on Properties and Changes of materials where children will learn about the wider properties of materials and their uses. They learn about mixtures and how they can be separated using sieving, filtration and evaporation. They study reversible and irreversible changes, and use common indicators to identify irreversible changes.
In D.T this project teaches children about how architectural style and technology has developed over time and then use this knowledge to design a building with specific features.
In Art we will be looking at Expression, this project teaches children about the Expressionist art movement and the 'Father of Expressionism', Edvard Munch. They explore different ways to portray feelings and emotions in art to create an imaginative self-portrait. Mixed Media teaches children about paper crafts, papermaking and collage techniques, including paper, fabric, mixed media and photo collage. They use their learning to create a final piece of small-scale, mixed media collage.
PE and PSHE remain on a Wednesday afternoon, as does French and computing with Mr Foyle
We have a Greek comedy production to put on, the Queens Jubilee to celebrate and the residential to look forward to with lots of fun and learning in between!
