Year 5 (Mrs Thwaites and Miss Parker)

Welcome to Year 5! Mrs Thwaites and Miss Parker are the class teachers and Miss Gosling is the teaching assistant.

This year we have learned about rivers through our topic 'Go With The Flow' and all about the Victorians. This term, we are very much looking forward to exploring famous landmarks around the world as we investigate our new topic 'Spectacular Structures'.

During this exciting new topic, we will be comparing different structures and buildings around the world, investigating their impact on their surroundings and their architectural design. This will be a cross-curricular topic, combining English, music, geography, art, history and RE.  To enhance our learning, we will be visiting contrasting places of worship to learn more about their design.  In English, we will be learning all about playscripts, poetry and explanation texts. We will also be learning about forces in out science lessons and tennis during our PE lessons.

This term we will be swimming weekly and cannot wait to share with you the progress that we make!

We hope you enjoy looking at our website.
