Year 5 Classes

Our Year 5 classes are taught by Mrs. Spencer, Mrs. Oldridge and Mr. Davis.

The two classes are called Hazel and Elm.  

During PPA each week, the children are taught by Mrs. Law and Mrs. Wild during specialist computing and art lessons in which they learn about, practice and apply different I.T. and artistic skills to complement in-class learning. The children also learn about e-safety.

Ancient Greeks

During Term 3, Year 5 immersed themselves fully into the lives of the Ancient Greeks! Amongst many other exciting things, in English, we re-wrote the Greek myth 'Perseus and Medusa.' Some of the children went on to record theirs as podcasts- take a listen!

The Terrible Tudors!

This term, we have been learning all about the Terrible Tudors! 

We started off by looking at The Battle of Bosworth and we created stained-glass windows to depict the start of the 100 year Tudor reign. 



In English, we have been looking at the most famous writer to come out of the Tudor times- Shakespeare. In class, we have been reading 'Hamlet.' The children are thoroughly enjoying the book and are enthusiastic to finish the story to find out if Hamlet really did see his father's ghost or if he has gone mad! 

In the meantime, they have practised letter and diary writing and creating horoscopes for some of the key characters.
