Welcome to Year 5

Hello everyone! A warm welcome to our class page. Our topics this year are Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, Asia: Earthquakes and Volcanoes, Baghdad and The Industrial Revolution.

 

Please revisit this page to find regular updates, useful websites and to explore what we have been learning about in class. 

Our Learning

RE - Hope

During Advent, we focused on the topic of hope. We focused on how we can wait hopefully for the arrival of the Messiah.

Year 5 RSE- Gifts and talents

Year 5 reflected on the similarities and differences between individuals in the class. We understand that children we are all unique, with different family set-ups, gifts and talents. Finally we created self-portraits with ‘I am…’ statements around the outside with the title of the portrait ‘I am loved by God’.

As part of our Multiplication and Division topic we are focusing on calculating cubed numbers. We began to deepen our understanding by working collaboratively to create cube numbers using multilink cubes to explore how cube numbers are found.

In History, we worked together to analyse various sources from Anglo-Saxon times.

In RE, we took part in a job interview for a follower of Jesus. We thought about the key qualities a follower of Jesus should possess.

Year 5 were extremely lucky to get the opportunity to visit the Relics of St Bernadette here in Doncaster today. We began with a liturgy and wahsed our hands with Holy water from Lourdes before visiting the Relics.

Today we celebrated Roald Dahl Day! After focusing on George's Marvellous Medicine we created our own magical medicine potions.

As part of our Science topic, Earth and Space, we investigated the distance between each planet and the position of the planets within our solar system relative to the sun.
