2019-20 YEAR 5

Welcome to the Year 5 Class of 2019-20
 
Mrs Gibbs, Mrs Deacon and the Year 5 team have an exciting time planned for the Autumn term!  The main topic in the class is 'The Victorians' where they will learn what life was like back in the Victorian Era. 
 
Beginning with a Biography about Queen Victorian they will move to the story of 'Street Child' to discover what life was like for poor children of the time.  This will be a great literacy and history link, learning about life and also using the events and experiences from the text.
 
In art lessons the class will focus on a range of skills such as pencil drawing and creating backgrounds with collage, all linked to Victorian artists, such as William Morris and William Turner.  To truly experience life in Victorian times the children will create a sampler in their design and technology lessons.  These sewing and design skills will then be used later in the term to create craft items for sale at the school Christmas Fair.
 
Don't forget PE sessions are on Thursday and Friday, but PE kits should always be in school from the Monday to the Friday for an extra sessions of to act as spare clothing.  Swimming will be held on a Friday morning until around the half term week.
 
The class will be having a Victorian day, so start looking for suitable costumes!  More details to follow!
