Welcome to Class 11!
Class teacher: Mr Waller
Teaching Assistant: Miss Gibson
We are so excited to be back at school to continue our learning in Year 5! In Class 11 our motto is “the sky is no limit to what you can do” and we always strive to achieve our best.
In the Summer Term we have been looking at the “Alternate Realities” including The Wizarding World of Harry Potter through Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling. After that, we will move onto studying the Wizard of Oz by Frank L. Baum before looking at “fake news” through the story of Wicked.
In Mathematics we have developed our understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages along with classifying and measuring angles. We are excited to learn about geometry and measures this coming term.
In Science we are have been learning about forces as well as animals including humans. We will complete a study of animals in the local environment and work with the Tees Valley Wildlife Trust and Teesmouth Field Centre over the coming term.
In Art we studied the work of Ray Harryhausen and created our own models inspired by his work. We then used stop motion animation techniques to animate our mythical beasts!
In RE we have looked at the importance of Easter for Christians as well as the importance of pilgrimage to people of different faiths.
We are excited about our final term in Year 5!
