Welcome to Class 5!
Miss Scotland is our teacher, Miss Harris is our teaching assistant and Mr Lindo is our SEN support teacher.
Our theme in Autumn 1 is ‘Faster, Higher, Stronger’ and our theme in Autumn 2 is ‘Food, Glorious, Food’. During Autumn 1, we will be learning all about Ancient Greece in history, this will include: how the Ancient Greeks lived: their belief system; and their impact on the Olympic Games. In Art, we will be designing and creating Ancient Greek theatre masks. Science lessons will include discovering how materials change when heated, boiled or frozen and, in RE lessons, we will be exploring the Bible.
We are also very excited for our trip to The Catalyst Science Discovery Centre, where we will put on our lab coats and become experts at: mixing, melting and creating our own soap!
In Autumn 2, we will be focusing on Geography – locating countries and using maps. We will also be discovering all the different, and wonderful, foods eaten around the world, and where these products originate. In DT, we will design and make our own healthy recipes, and in RE, we will be leading up to Christmas and exploring the Christmas story in more detail, learning about different traditions around the world.
English lessons will include, writing myths, non-chronological reports and narratives from the past, as well as streamed GPS sessions. In Maths, we will continue to follow the Lancashire Primary Framework, alongside additional daily arithmetic sessions.
