Our themes throughout the year are Tudor Explorers, France, Mountains, The Caribbean, The Industrial Revolution and finally Myths and Legends.
Year 5 is a great year as we are becoming more independent and mature. This allows us to develop some of our learning more independently particularly through some of the TASC (Thinking Actively in a Social Context) activities where we can use our ideas and choose how to present what we have learned. There is an expectation that we have additional responsibilities to support the whole school community. These include playground and dinner duties, where we support younger children. Some of us choose to be playground leaders and support the younger children in structured play at lunch times. We also take part in the Y5/6 Carol Service and the Y5/6 Summer performance. Two of the members of our class are also involved in the School, Eco and Collective Worship Councils.
During the summer term, there is lots to look forward to including a variety of sports events to participate in. Also during our final term, Year 5 and Year 6 have an amazing time either visiting London (Houses of Parliament, London Eye and a workshop at The Globe Theatre) or we spend a week enjoying a residential visit to Ilam in Derbyshire.
