Mercury class has a fun-packed term ahead! In particular, we are looking forward to our Bikeability training later on in January which will teach us all about road sense and safety.
In maths we are moving on to division and fractions and in English we are starting the term with suspense and mystery writing.
Our topic will be Ancient Greece and we will be looking at what it was like to live through these times and how this ancient society shaped generations to come. The children will also make clay vases inspired by Greek designs.
Year 5 have had a great start to the year. Children have really enjoyed learning about the Victorians. We have learnt about Victorian inventions, prisons, workhouses and much more in our history lessons. The Victorian projects children brought in were of a very high standard and everyone learnt a lot when children shared their knowledge.
In DT children have made moving toys using cams, and in art made Victorian silhouettes. These took a lot of careful work and careful cutting out. We were all pleased with the results.
Next term we will be looking at the work of William Morris in art.
