Class 9

Welcome to Year 5!


Our adults are Mrs Maddison and Mrs Dineen. 


Homework is due every Thursday and is set the same Thursday. Pages will be shared on class dojo each week.


PE days are Monday (swimming) and Friday (Synergy).



So far this term...


In English we have looked at Tom's Midnight Garden, a lovely story about time travel and the children have written their own stories in the style of Phillipa Pearce. Some of these will be displayed in the atrium. Currently, we are looking at the story of Marcy and the Riddle of the Sphinx. 


We are focusing on Ancient Egypt this term and have learnt all about the different Pharaohs and how they ruled over all. This week we have written diary entries as if we were Tutankhamun's discoverer, Howard Carter. The children have been left in suspense, not knowing whether Carter makes it into the tomb or not. 


In art, the children have looked at Keith Harring and many have been inspired to create their own pieces at home.
