Welcome to Year 5! This is your first year in Upper Key Stage 2 and will be filled with new challenges and learning experiences. Miss Hartley is your class teacher and the class TA is Mrs Gibson.

In Summer Term, we will be learning about World War I. We will have an exciting, immersive WWI day with a historian, who will be showing us artefacts and telling us what life would have been like for a soldier. Following this, we will be using our WWI knowledge to write emotive poems in literacy. Additionally, we will be writing an adventure story inspired by Robin Hood!

In science, we will be learning about the life cycles of animals. This will include: looking at different animals' habitats and discussing links to their life cycles; comparing asexual and sexual reproduction and researching famous naturalists. In art, our topic is sewing. We will be working together to create a class quilt! In maths, we are exploring geometry. We are learning the names for different angles, how to measure them using a protractor and how to use angle facts to work out the size of missing angles. Our guided reading text is a poetry book called Cloud Soup by Kate Wakeling. In the afternoon, our class story is Cogheart.
