Year 5 Ash Class
Class Teacher Mrs Suzan Kern - firstname.lastname@example.org
Firstly, I would just like to say that it was a real privilege to take Year 5 to the Sustainability Centre for their two-night residential stay. The children really impressed me with the way that they embodied all our school values engaging positively with all aspects of the trip. They learnt new skills, built strong relationships, and showed great maturity throughout. We also had a lot of fun along the way.
In our History lessons, we are learning about the Anglo Saxons and Vikings with a particular focus on their impact on the formation of a United Kingdom. This learning was brought to life on our residential during an ‘Anglo Saxon’ day of workshops and activities.
Also on our residential, we took part in some Geography field work and surveyed Salt Hill to determine its suitability as the site for a wind farm. We also learnt about farming ethically and were able to relate this learning to the way the Anglo Saxons farmed. All these activities gave the children opportunities to engage in a positive way with our ‘Be the Change’ curriculum.
In English we have written thank you letters to the Sustainability Centre and are about to begin writing our own Historical Fiction stories. In Maths we are completing our work on measures and will begin to investigate volume next week. In Science and PHSE we will be exploring the stages of human life with a particular emphasis on puberty.
And finally, as the year draws to a close, I wish you all a happy, peaceful summer.
