Welcome to Shakespeare Class


Year Five are a fun loving class taught by Mrs Levey who is assisted by Mrs Lamb.  We are enjoying our history topic this term  and our key question is to critically weigh up the evidence as to whether the Vikings were pirate invaders? We will be looking at where they came from, their crime and punishment system,  their beliefs and their day to day life.

PE this term is all about competitive games on Mondays and Wednesdays, whilst also developing our team spirit. We are enjoying doing the Daily Mile to develop our personal fitness. Mrs Levey is the French co-ordinator so we are all hoping to really improve our French speaking this year. Our science unit is animals including humans and living things.  Our ICT this term is about binary code and green screen technology.

During Year Five we all take part in a year long music project called Wider Opps where we get to learn a brass or woodwind instrument to play together as a wind band. These sessions take place on a Thursday afternoon when we are working with Mrs Anstice. Our favourite piece this term is 'We will rock you'. In our RE lessons on Thursday afternoons we are learning about a religion which we haven't covered before and looking at Sikhism, particularly concepts of leadership and equality.

Year 5 working hard to be active global citizens and overcoming challenges together. Our class our responsible for Eco issues and Fair Trade.  We will be promoting fair trade fortnight at the end of February.
