Welcome to the Year 5 class page.
We are the Year 5 children and our class teacher is Mrs Bradley. Miss White and Mrs Smith also work with us too.
This year, our topics have been ‘Innovative Inventions’, ‘Battles, Blackouts and The Blitz’ and ‘The Holiday Show’. We have really enjoyed learning about the past and world around us.
We start each topic with a wow day. Our favourite wow day this year has been creating our own inventions! We made jet packs, robots, hamster feeders and much more…We were visited by Michael and Rodney, who are steampunks. They spoke to us about steam power and different inventions. We also got to see some things they had made and invented.
In the autumn term, some of us also got to visit PGL. We had an amazing time!
When learning about WWII, we visited the Holocaust Centre in Nottinghamshire. We followed the journey of a young Jewish boy from before the outbreak of WWII until his arrival in England on the Kindertransport. It was a very emotional but highly thought provoking and memorable day. At the end of each topic, we have a Wonder Day where we are able to share our learning throughout the topic and home learning projects. At the end of this topic, we hosted a fantastic WWII VE day street party. We sang songs, ate food and celebrated our learning.
This term, we are currently learning about places all around the world. On our WOW DAY, we became a travel agent and took on the challenge of booking a holiday for some very tricky customers… the teachers! Each teacher had a very specific set of holiday requirements. We needed to research and find them the perfect holiday, using holiday brochures and the internet to help us. By the end of the day, we had to know all about the holiday (including destination, accommodation, transport, things to do, local information and costs etc).
