Welcome to Year 5
We have two Year 5 classes, one called Morpurgo and the other called Rowling. Each class has their own teacher, Mr Matthews is the teacher in Morpurgo and Mr Bland is the teacher in Rowling. We are lucky enough to have Mrs Rushworth as our teaching assistant working across both classes and helping us learn.
In Year 5 we are great readers but know its important to keep reading at home and try to read a range of authors and genres. To help us do this and to help us become more independent readers, we read at home each day. We don’t need to read to an adult every night, we might just decide to read to ourselves but sometimes, its great to read to an adult too.
Our PE lessons are on a Monday and Wednesday. You will need to come to school wearing your PE kit and you will be able to stay in this all day. PE will take place outside so make sure you have black warm jogging bottoms. Please make sure you do not wear any branded clothing or football kits.
What is the legacy of the Ancient Greeks?
This half term we will be delving into the fascinating times of Ancient Greece. Children will make comparisons with Modern Day and Ancient Greece, investigate daily life for Ancient Greeks and consider the importance of two gargantuan city states: Athens and Sparta. As well as this, they will look at the significance of Alexander the Great. The legacy of Ancient Greece will be explored through an examination of the modern and ancient Olympics, with children being able to draw comparisons between the two.
