Welcome to Year 5
Our Teacher in Year 5 is Mr Lomax. Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Stott, she is in the classroom with the children all day. Look at some of our daily experiences in our blog.
We also have our own Learning Wall - see link below. We use the resources on the Wall to research out topics and curriculum work in school. Please use these resources at home to further develop your child's learning.
For Your Information
Year 5 Curriculum Overview
Our topic this term is 'Contrasting Localities' - where we will be comparing physical and human features in Grasmere and Kearsley.
This ties in with our Year 5 residential trip which takes place later this month.
Year 5 Residential
Our new class novel is 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. The story is about the unexpected arrival in England of a giant 'metal man' who rains destruction on the countryside by attacking industrial farm equipment before befriending a small boy and defending the world from a monster from outer space.
