We have two Year 5 classes at Tudor School.
5W’s Class Teacher is Mrs McKenzie and she is assisted by Mrs Higgins.
5X’s Class teacher is Mr Crowder and he is assisted by Mrs Knight.
5W and 5X are also taught by Mr Higgins and Mrs Smith respectively.
Both classes enjoy a weekly PE taught by Mr Higgins (Wednesday for 5W, Friday for 5X).
If you want to know what Year 5 learn about through in class through their topic work, then this is the part of the website that will inform you!
Our topic this term is ‘It’s all Greek to me!’. During this topic, we will be exploring the ancient Greeks and their influence on modern day culture with a focus on aspects such as the Olympics, Greek gods, and myths.
In English, we will be using a range of text types linked to our topic including both fiction and non-fiction. We will be creating fiction texts inspired by Percy Jackson, and writing explanation texts, poems and other non-fiction text types with themes of ancient Greece.
In Maths, we will be developing our bar modelling skills when solving word problems, exploring area and perimeter, and using our fractions, decimals and percentages knowledge to tackle different problems. We will also be looking at statistics and roman numerals.
Our Science focus this term will be the forces and working scientifically to explore the impact on different forces around us.
In History, we will be looking at the Ancient Greeks and comparing life for them to modern day life, thinking about areas of modern life that have been influenced by Greek culture. In Geography, we will be looking at the human and physical features of Greece and the Greek islands.
In Art we will be focussing on sketching and perspective drawings. We will be making observations and exploring different sketching methods in our sketch books.
In Computing we will become artists and architects, whilst learning how to keep safe online.
Have a look at our current topic web to give you further detail on the areas of study. Please bear in mind that this is a working document and the plans will be adjusted to suit the children in the class and their interests as well as adapting and incorporating interesting activities and events as they come up, if they are useful for our learning.
