Welcome to Class 11!
Class teacher: Mr Waller & Mrs Milburn
Teaching Assistant: Miss Gibson
Children in Class 11 are in Year 5 and are taught by Mr Waller and Mrs Milburn. Miss Gibson also helps us in our lessons.
This term we are exploring London and have enjoyed taking part in an extended project based on the “Mary Poppins” stories by P.L. Travers. We are working hard to look at the different characters in the books, we will then write letters to Mary Poppins, create our own magical adventures and write instructions on how to fly kites. We are looking forward to making our own kites during our “Let’s go fly a kite day” and will fly our kite creations to the highest height and send them soaring! We will also learn about the life of P.L. Travers through biography work linked to the film “Saving Mr Banks.”
In history we have been exploring the Victorian and Edwardian era. We have looked at a range of areas of life in the past including schooling, jobs, towns and the suffrage movement. We will also learn about the workhouse through the story of “Oliver” and will even make gruel! We will also look at the local heritage of mining in the North East of England.
In Science we will explore “The Earth and beyond” through and exploration of space and our solar system!
In RE are exploring the role of Pilgrimage and will then move onto exploring ideas about God.
