Year 5 - Miss Bennett, Mrs Hillyer & Miss Lolljowaheer

Year 5 have chosen The World at War as our first topic.

In Literacy, we will be exploring poems about the World Wars and we will be creating our own interpretation of the poem 'High Flight'. In addition, we will also be writing a newspaper report to inform the audience of events that occurred during World War Two.

In Art, we are exploring artists that have created pieces to commemorate or depict scenes from the World Wars. We have already begun to research Paul Cummins and Tom Piper, the artist and designer responsible for the creation of the Weeping Windows and Waves of poppies.

Within our Science lessons we are learning about forces. We have already explored the forces surrounding us and the impact they have on an object. We will conduct experiments to discover how different materials and masses effect the forces acting on objects.

Guided Reading, Maths, PE, Spelling and PDL will all be happening alongside this.

During the week, children will visit the library and will be given spellings and home learning on a Thursday which will be due in on the following Thursday.

Our indoor PE lessons will be on a Monday morning and our outdoor PE lessons will be on a Thursday afternoon. Please ensure that PE kits are in school all week.

As part of our topic we will visit Fort Nelson to explore the features of the fort that contributed to World War Two. In addition, we will have the opportunity to see the fort’s artillery collection. We will have to be ready to discover what life in World War Two was like as we experience some aspects of life in World War Two.

Our knowledge of World War Two will be showcased during our 'End Goal' Victory in Europe Day parade.

We are looking forward to an exciting year of learning together!

Miss Bennett, Miss Lolljowaheer and Mrs Hillyer.
