Year 5

In Year 5, the children are supported by the following adults:
Jamie Patrick (Class teacher)
Sue Wilson (Learning Support)
Rosemary Bird-Hawkins (Teaching Assistant)
Amber Jones (Teaching Assistant)

We aim to create a learning environment that encourages academic development as well as social development. Ultimately, if a child is happy, they're happy to learn!

The broad range of topics will engage and encourage all children to develop a passion for learning throughout the school year and beyond.

Week commencing 22nd February 2021


Inspired by the recent Mars Rover Perseverance landing and using our knowledge from our Space topic, children have been designing their own 'hab' or Mars habitat. There are plans for humans to visit in the next 10 years so these designs may one day become a reality.
We will decide the two winners when we are back at school, which will be entered into a competition!

Children also started to learn about social activist Isatou Ceesay as part of Gambian topic and part of Fair Trade Fortnight. Discover her story here:

Here are some of the children's bracelets made from old plastic bags.

Here are Thomas W, Beatrice and Sam M's creations.
