Miss Hartford is the teacher in Year 5. 

There are many exciting, engaging and awe-inspiring lessons in Year 5 this term. Our English will be based around the text, The Varmints. It is a very exciting picture book with lots of avenues to write in a variety of ways such as: descriptively, formally with letters and newspaper reports and speeches; we will be incorporating drama in to the lessons. 

We have made a great start on the Geography part of our Humanities topic based ‘Rivers’ and Ancient Egypt, now we will be taking a step back in time and exploring the History of Egypt. Getting lost in the Great Pyramids and finding out about the mysteries they hold. Along the way, we will be exploring Egyptian art and creating our own masterpieces and trying our hand at Hieroglyphics. Where will our learning take us?

Science and experiments, we have been looking at materials and moving on to understanding Solids, Liquids and Gasses, along with testing materials and their effectiveness.

Spanish will be continuing as we use what we have learnt already and try using phrases for conversations and writing sentences about ourselves and our families.

There are some fantastic homework ideas to do each half term too based around all curriculum areas. Take a picture and send it to the Year5 email, then we can share your great work as a class.
