Class 12 overview
Class 12 settled into year 5 well and they are now currently in their second term.
Our current topic is America. During this term, each year group studies a different country of interest - learning all about its culture, landmarks, beliefs, population and history to name just a few things. To kick start our topic, we held an 'America Day' where the children (and staff) came dressed in red, white and blue. We had some American footballers and some cheerleaders that taught the children different skills and routines. Have a look at our 'America Day' gallery page.
The class text that we are currently reading is 'Holes' and the children are thoroughly enjoying it. This text links to our America topic and so will allow us to do lots of cross-curricular work. We will be moving on to look at Greek myths in the second half term.
PE is on a Wednesday afternoon as part of PPA and on a Thursday morning and so it is important that the children have the correct kit in school on these days. Girls need to remember a hair bobble and ear tape where necessary.
The other members of staff that work in class 12 are Mrs Harcourt and Miss Hives. Currently, we have a student teacher in our class until Easter called Miss Saunby.
