We're back! Open 10-6 today babes ✨ - PETITE & SWEET BEAUTY BTQ ...

Dear Year 5 Parents and Carers,

Next week you will be receiving your child’s school report. Due to the circumstances, we will not be able to provide the section of the report where the children reflect on their year for every child. To remedy this, if your child would like to write down their reflections on the year and send them through the office, we will compile a whole class reflection to send home with the reports.

Best wishes,

Year 5 team!

Year 5, thank you so much! Thanks for being the best class (and year group) I could possibly have had. This was my first year with my own primary school class (I used to teach secondary), and I could not have asked for a more fantastic group of people to spend the time with! It was an honour, a privilege and a joy to teach you! Parents and carers, thank you so much for the lovely voucher, and for your amazing work with the home learning!

I thought it fitting to leave where we started. On poetry day 2019, we began our poetry journey together, and since then you have impressed me, and moved me, and inspired me!

So, I leave you with this wonderful poem. If you would like to write a response (a poem with an extended metaphor like this, please do!)

Thank you all for being wonderful! I’ll remember you always.

Mountains, Rivers and the Water Cycle

As part of our Geography learning this term we will be looking at mountains and rivers, including the water cycle. For Design and Technology, to supplement your learning around these areas we thought that it would be nice for you to create either a labelled model of a mountain and river system or a model of the water cycle.

The water cycle plays an integral role in supporting life upon the planet. In the most basic sense it is the process of the movement of water from clouds, through the earth and back. The water cycle can be seen as happening on a relatively small scale, however it is a truly global phenomena. It can be responsible for the creation of mountain rivers and in the case of  South America, the water cycle is responsible for a ‘Flying River‘ , which will perhaps allow you to think of the Water Cycle in a different way!

You may find it interesting to think about the origins of water on Earth. As the video explains there have been many different theories on how Earth became so full of water! Origins of water

If you would like to create your own model of the Water Cycle the video below may help!

Rivers are an immensely interesting area to learn about. To help you build some knowledge about rivers we have linked a variety of videos. We hope you enjoy them!

Term 5 – William Morris 

This term the children will be looking at the work by William Morris, the British textile designer, designer, poet, novelist, translator, and activist, associated with the British Arts and Crafts Movement. The children will tell you how they have already looked at one Polymath this year. The focus will be looking at patterns and learning various skills and techniques in creating tessellated patterns in relation to the terms topic.  The children will also learn how William Morris created his plant-based designs, his influences, and his processes. They will then sketch and experiment with single and multiple motifs and patterns, before creating individual works in 2D and/or 3D.
