Welcome to Year 5!
This area will keep you up to date with what is happening in and out of class.
Any ideas or comments about our class pages? Please let me know:
Our class read for the first half term will be Cosmic By Frank Cottrell Boyce. This is a wonderful story about the incredible results that can come from a little fib.
We are continuing from our introduction to volley ball at the end of last term, as the children so enjoyed it. These are new skills, that demand some unfamiliar techniques, so it will be exciting to see how they develop throughout the term. During their session with Harry from Carlisle United they will be focusing on athletics.
In science we are blasting off to investigate the Earth, Moon and our own Solar System. Just wrapping our heads around the scale of these celestial bodies will be an incredible task on it's own. I absolutely love space and the children have already shown that they are eager to act like scientists and question everything.
We will be using various computer programs this term to compose our own electronic music inspired by the cosmos. The children can access a lot of the programs we will use online, so please practice your programming skills at home and have a go at writing your own Electro tracks. Below are some links to drum machines and sequencing software we will use.
