A Taste of our Learning

Start Right Week

Wow! What an incredible first week back at school, Year 5 have had a fabulous start to the Autumn term! We have elected our class ambassadors, decided on our Rights Respecting articles, discussed our E-Safety agreement (which can be found at the bottom of the Year 5 page) AND considered what it means to be a successful learner in Year 5. 

As well as this: 

We have started our gymnastics topic in P.E. This week we focused on sequences and how to travel using different speeds, whilst also moving at different levels. 

In P.S.H.E we were thinking about what it means to work collaboratively. We played a game where everybody had to secretly copy somebody else's position. The pose was shared silently, but we all ended up with the same pose! We used this collaborative thinking to help us build the tallest and strongest tower. 

In History, we have started our new topic, The British Empire. First, we were given a challenge to put lots of events into the correct chronological order. We then had to think about how big the gaps were between each event e.g. The Great Fire of London and The Gunpowder Plot were very close together but the Stone, Bronze and Iron Age were much further apart.
