Welcome to Class 5
Our Class Teacher is Mr. Hayes.
From September 2014 our planning has been based on the new National Curriculum programmes of study and objectives. (Please visit the Our Curriculum section of our website to find out more about the curriculum.) Each Class has a Curriculum Map which outlines what will be taught during the year.
Please check your child’s Class Newsletter for up-to-date details about what they will be learning each term.
What are we learning about at the moment?
Our summer fiction text is ‘Journey to the River Sea,’ which tells the story of an English girl who travels to live with family in the Amazon rainforest. We will use this text to transport us to South America, where we will learn about the rainforest as a habitat and about the animals that live there. We will also use it to inspire a drama which we will perform towards the end of the year.
To continue the ‘Americas’ theme, we will be learning about the Ancient Maya in history. We will get to hear about their calendar, customs, foods and gods as well as recreating Mayan sculptures and glyphs. We will learn about the countries surrounding the Mayan civilisation and the Amazon before ‘designing’ an eco-friendly hotel. Class Five will also be exploring their programming skills to create a Mayan empire on the ‘Kodu’ program.
Summer is upon us and we are very much looking forward to the term ahead!
Please read our class newsletter to find out in more detail what we will be learning in Class 5 this term.
