Welcome to Class 5
The topics this year we are covering in year 5 are: Rumble in the Jungle, The Mighty Mayans and Walk like an Egyptian. We will be linking Geography, History, Art and DT within these topics, creating an exciting curriculum for the children to get their teeth into!
We hope to run theme days to inspire the children and will be asking parents to come share work with the children over the year.
We have been lucky enough to be chosen to work alongside a professional musician from Birmingham Conservatoire.
Over the year there will be various sessions where we work together and hopefully the project will culminate in a fantastic performance.
PE days are Monday and Thursdays for the autumn term. We will be swimming on Friday in the second term.
In the Autumn term year 5 are being trained as young leaders. The training is run by Jason Boon. The training encourages the children to lead and organise games to play at lunchtimes. After the training has taken place the children will be given opportunities to practise the skills they have learned.
