Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Welcome back to the Spring Term at St. Hild's. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and enjoyed your time off together. We had a great time in the Autumn Term and I look forward to more of the same for Spring!


This term, our whole school topic is 'Travellers and Explorers' and we have lots of exciting learning opportunities planned to get the most out of this topic. As part of this, we get to learn about the Roman Empire discover how the history of Britain is intertwined with that of the Romans.


Our PE this term will be swimming lessons on a Tuesday afternoon so please come to school with your swimming kit in a bag on this day. 

Homework will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned to school by the following Wednesday. Please also bring your reading book to and from school every day and try to read as much as possible at home. 


We look forward to another great term,

Mr Grant and Mrs White smiley

Onomatopoeic Pop Art

Our art this term has been focused around the 'Pop Art' style. The children really captured the vibrancy of this style with their artwork - they look like they could have come straight out of some comic books!


This term, we have enjoyed working with Marie-Claire from the SSP to develop our gymnastic skills of balancing, rolling and travelling. The final routines the children came up with were excellent! smiley

Maths How-To Videos

We had a great time in maths recording how-to videos explaining the methods we use for addition and subtraction. The children were naturals in front of the camera and made sure their videos were informative and entertaining!

Willow Weaving

Our willow weaving workshop was great fun and very calming too. The children all did a great job and you can see the artwork that they contributed to displayed on our school grounds smiley

Exploring Tutankhamun's Tomb

In history today, we imagined that we were part of Howard Carter's team who had just discovered an ancient tomb. We crawled through our own version of the tomb, found artefacts inside, and discussed why they may have been buried with the young Pharaoh. 

Paint Blending to Make a Colour Wheel

Egyptian Mummification

As part of our learning about the Ancient Egyptians, we explored the process of mummification used to preserve bodies and then tried it out for ourselves using tomatoes. As you can see, our preserved 'bodies' lasted much better than the one left open to the air!

Class Artwork

We worked together as a class team to create these pieces of collaborative artwork representing two of our school values - they look great! smiley
