Welcome to Year Five! It only feels like five minutes since I was welcoming you to Key Stage Two! I am so lucky to get to teach you all again, like you I am a little anxious about getting back to school but also massively excited! I can’t wait to see all your smiling faces again. We are going to have a fabulous year full of lots of fun, interesting new topics and challenging but rewarding work.
Our first history topic is all about Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. We will be uncovering what it was like to live in these times, what advances happened that changed our ancestors’ lives and why these changes happened. At the end of the topic you will have to decide which age you think was the most influential on human kind and why, pitting your views against the rest of the class! Our art work will also link towards our history as we will be creating our own cave paintings using traditional materials!
In geography, we will be travelling to the Waseley Hills in a fun packed topic! In two groups you will either be arguing for or against the idea of building a wind farm on the site. You will need to conduct some field tests and use all your geographical knowledge in order to convince the board whether they should or shouldn’t build a wind farm. What a fantastic opportunity!
Although this year is going to be a little different than we are used to, I promise you that it will be one to remember; as always all we ask is that you work hard, show plenty of enthusiasm and try your best. If you have any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to ask me or arrange a meeting with me - my door is always open. You can also talk to me by sending in a letter or writing a note in a planner. I’m here to help.
Mr Homer and Mrs Nash
