Learning

Year 5

A warm welcome to Year 5 – St Teresa ( Mrs Terry and Mrs Gordon) and St Catherine (Mrs Carney).

Our staff team is completed by Mrs Eckhardt, Mrs Gibbs, Mrs Mitchinson and Mrs Slominski.

Our Autumn curriculum link is “The Terrible Tudors” and later in the term we are visited by Chertsey Museum for a hands-on workshop using Tudor artefacts.  To complement our history topic we learn about William Shakespeare’s plays and look in depth at Macbeth, which includes taking part in a drama workshop. The whole term’s work is celebrated in a lavish Tudor Banquet in which the children participate by dressing up and providing the live entertainment.

In the Spring Term, the curriculum link is “By the waters of Babylon” which focuses mainly on the Geography topic of “Managing Water” and links with our short History topic learning about early Islamic Civilisation.  This includes many practical tasks which the children carry out in and around the school. At the end of the term Year 5 lead the school in their Easter reflections by performing the Passion Play to which we hope and pray we will be able to invite parents and members of the wider community.  Another highlight of the Spring Term is a visit from ‘The Highwayman’-  a dramatic reconstruction of  Alfred Noyes’ poem – to enhance our English lessons. we are hoping to visit the Winchester Science Centre in January as part of our learning about space in Science.

We very much hope that the Summer term will begin with our residential field trip to Swanage which introduces the children to the connector “Life on the Ocean Wave”.  During the trip the children investigate coastal features and use this information in the follow up work done back at school during the rest of the term.  You can read all about the last visit to Swanage by following the link from this page.

Please look at our termly Curriculum Information booklets and the presentation from the Curriculum Evening (watch the recording below) for more information on what we are up to!
