Year 5

Miss Bell (Teacher) / Miss Watkins

Welcome

Welcome to Year 5! This year is an exciting year, packed full of memorable opportunities and the chance for the children to take on important responsibilities in their first year of upper key stage 2. 

 This year the children will continue to develop as independent learners while reaching their full academic potential in preparation for their transition to Year 6. 

 In Year 5 we work hard, respect each other and engage in and enjoy our learning. The year ahead is packed full of exciting challenges.   

 

Music – Creating mood using sound effects

This week in music, year five have been creating sound effects and short pieces of music to create atmosphere and mood. We were challenged to develop a short sequence of sound effects to add to a short film in order to create a feeling of comedy, romance and horror....

Living Eggs – Day Six and Seven

Living Eggs – Day Three

Today has been a very exciting day in Year 5. After patiently waiting, the first of our chicks began pipping which means that they started to chip their way out of their egg. We have been watching the progress of the chick all day and have been very excited. Just...

Living Eggs – Day Two

Today (unfortunately) there has been no change with our Living Eggs. We would expect this, as it is only day twenty of the chick's development inside of the egg. In preparation for the arrival of our chicks, we have began writing a non - chronological report on the...

Anti – prejudice Workshop

On Monday, Year 5 had two visitors from the Anne Frank Trust. Our visitors were here to teach us about prejudice and how it can impact on how people feel and their self-esteem. We saw video clips which helped us think about: sexism, racism, homophobia, ageism and...
