Welcome to Year 5!

Teachers - Mrs Wright & Mrs Wharrier

Teaching Assistants - Mrs Tucker & Miss Harvey

Mrs Wright, Miss Wharrier and all the Y5 teaching team are looking forward to welcoming our new Year 5 class back into school this Autumn Term.

As well as our return to school, this year is made even more special as the class and Miss Wharrier are once again re-united after being together in Year 2. Also, our class mascots Skye and Farne are looking forward to sharing the year ahead!

Our topics for this term are:

Science – Properties of Materials and Evolution and Inheritance (Charles Darwin).

Geography – Countries of the world and a Local Area Study of our location through time.

History – The Victorians – to include a special investigation of Victorian Lowestoft.

RE – Creation, Judaism and God’s Covenants.

Art – Our artwork will be inspired by flags of the world and then The Pre-Raphaelites.

Music – Y5 will be learning to play the guitar with specialist tuition from our County Music Service. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn an instrument and share our love of music.

Check our newsletter for more details of the curriculum and information about the school week.

With all these exciting topics and activities ahead, watch this space for news and photographs!
