Year 5 Ash Class

Class Teacher Mrs Suzan Kern  

Year 5 have been continuing with their learning about the Anglo Saxons in History lessons and are beginning to learn about food and farming in DT.  As part of this learning, we have just spent three days on our residential at the Sustainability Centre in Hampshire.  Here the children really impressed me with their resilience when tackling new challenges.  They showed all the school values and were great company.  We packed so much into our three days that it is hard to pick out the best bits.  Some of the highlights included a talent show, a farm tour on a tractor and trailer, an Anglo-Saxon workshop, a ‘wind turbine feasibility study’ on the top of Salt Hill and a very entertaining storyteller. 

Now that we are back in school, we are deepening our learning by writing about our experiences in our History, Geography and DT books.  We are also writing our own leaflets about the Sustainability Centre in English lessons.

In Maths we are learning how to convert units of measure.  We are also reviewing how to multiply and divide by 1,10,100 and 1000.  As always, any opportunities to reinforce this learning at home really help the children to develop their mathematical fluency.

In Art we are learning about the ‘tree of life’ and how it has influenced artists through the ages.  We will end this unit by designing and creating our own artwork inspired by the tree of life.

Please remember, as the summer holidays approach, that regular reading and maths fluency games over the break will really help the children come back to school ready for the new challenges in Year 6.
