Welcome to Year 5
Ms Starrett and Mrs Walker are the Year 5 Class Teachers and Mrs Moss is our Teaching Assistant.
We are all looking forward to learning about lots of new things this year in Year Five, even though things might be a bit different to how we have learnt previously. Please read our class newsletter and look at our long term plan to find more detail about what we will be covering as part of our cross-curricular approach to learning.
As always, if you have any questions or queries, then please feel free to contact us via the office and we will get back in touch with you as soon as we can.
As part of our Autumn 'Local Area' studies we have been looking at the areas of Huddersfield and Kirklees, working on a project together with Kirklees Council. We will be doing some further work on Democracy and the process of government and we hope to be able to meet some of our Kirklees councilors to ask them questions about our area and town and share ideas about how we can influence the decision-making process. Watch this space for updates! Here is a taste of the work we have done so far this term.
Local Area Studies Autumn 2020.
We all spent a day looking at the environmental, human and physical geography of our local area. Walking around Linthwaite, we spotted many things we had never noticed before and despite the damp weather, we managed to make some super sketches too.
Maths was a focus on our Outdoor Learning day this Autumn. After learning about Roman numerals in class we then conducted an outdoor Treasure hunt looking for clues that lead to a secret coded message. The hunt took us into our Wild Area and beyond ...
Even though it was a wild and soggy day, we then had some fun 'Trust' maze activities where we had to lead our classmates on a circuit wearing blindfolds. we would like to assure you that no Year Fives were harmed in the undertaking of this perilous activity!
A wet but thoroughly enjoyable day was had by all. It was also Ms Starrett's birthday so we had cake and biscuits to keep us all going too! (ssshh, don't tell Mrs Travis!)
Art Autumn 2020
Winter Hockney artwork we designed and created using watercolour and acrylic paints, pen, drawing pencils, coloured pencils and a stipple sponge. They were so good we decided to turn them into Christmas cards for gifts. Aren't they super!
Our R.E. lessons have ended with a fun board game we devised which tests our knowledge of the Bible and what we have learnt over this term. We can choose who we play it with and look forward to this game at the end of our lesson.
