Welcome to Year 5!
Welcome to the Year 5 page! Mrs Reed (5P) , Mrs Mackdermott (5T) , Mrs Johnson (Mon-Thurs 5L) and Mrs Palmer (Fri 5L) are all part of the team and we look forward to the exciting year ahead!
This term our topic is World War 2. We will be looking at life during the war for evacuees, how the war effected Britain and the war effort involving both men and women. On Friday 11th January we have a WW2 trip to Beaumanor Hall where we will be looking at coding, rationing and air raid shelters to experience what life was like during the war. In PE this term we will be doing a variety of activities such as gymnastics, netball and hockey. PE will be every Wednesday so please have your kit in each week ready for an afternoon of PE! In Year 5 we also get the exciting opportunity of having a go at the Spoken English competition for the first time. It is a fantastic experience where we learn about public speaking and raise our confidence to create a speech about an important topic to share with the class and the winners then go on to share this in the final in front of a panel of judges and the school. We are very excited for this term and cannot wait to get started!
