The pace plan for Year 5 for this half term can be seen below. Each pace plan tracks when particular areas of learning will be in focus across a term.
Year 5 Surfers recently applied their learning about the Vikings to work in groups to create outfits fit for a Viking Warrior! They were then given a range of scenario's and depending on if their Warrior had the necessary clothing or weapons, they survived . . . or not!
Year 5 have been enjoying Bike-ability training this week despite the wintery weather conditions. Every child in the year group has made progress in their bike-handling skills, achieving either Learn-to-Ride, Level 1 or Level 2 Bike-ability certificates. We must say a MASSIVE 'Thank You' to our cycle trainers from Plymouth SSP.
Year 5 have been busy studying Forces and their effects in science lessons this term. We have had lots of challenges around air resistance, water resistance and friction to investigate.
In term 1, Year 5 Surfers and Stingray classes visited an Anglo-saxon village at Wildwood Escot. They had the most fantastic day of learning alongside the Anglo-saxon villagers Matt, Becca and Jessi, metal-working, preparing food, crafting wood, making coins, spotting wild animals and foraging for medicinal plants. The visit has informed all our history lessons throughout the term. The jaw-dropping drop slide was the highlight of a wonderful day out!
The Year 5 teachers have put together some useful links to websites which the children use for numeracy so they can practice at home.
Year 5 have new blogs.
Come and have a look at what we've been doing in year 5 by following the link below.
