Welcome to Year Five! I am so lucky to finally get to teach you all. Fingers crossed this year will go back to normality a little more than we were used to last year. We are going to have a fabulous time full of lots of fun, interesting new topics and challenging but rewarding work. I was so proud of what you achieved on our transition day and I know this is going to be a really successful year.
Our first science is all about investigating the different properties of materials. This means we will take part in lots of experiments and think about what materials are best suited for certain jobs. This is something designers and architects have to think about all the time so is really important!
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!
I promise you that this year will be one to remember. 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 Mr Hamblett
