Welcome To

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

The children will be delighted to know that Mr Bavington and Miss Johnson will be teaching Year 5 in 2023-24. We are both thrilled to be working in this fabulous year group and we look forward to supporting the children as they continue their learning through school. 

In addition, our support staff will be: Mr Hammond and Mrs Hawkes (cover for Mr Bavington). 

Make sure you are following us on Twitter – @Y5EJStradbroke and @Y5BStradbroke to find out about our learning and all that we’re getting up to. 

An important reminder: 

Y5’s PE day is on Thursday, so please make sure the children have their kit on this day. The children should then take their PE kits home ready for the next week’s session. Many thanks.

Summer Term

During the Summer Term, in geography, the children will be learning more about the oceans of the world! As Oceanographers, the children will be exploring the impact of pollution and climate change within oceans and how this predominantly affects coastal regions. They will be proposing solutions as to how we can live sustainably in order to protect the marine biome. 

In history, the children will be learning about inequality, both in the UK and internationally and how it relates to current experiences. This will be a natural continuation of our other areas of historical learning this year (Victorians and Colonialism) and will include the study of significant individuals, such as: Emmeline Pankhurst, Emily Davison and Malala Yousafzai. 

As design technologists, we will be learning about the process of bread-making before then designing, baking and evaluating our own loaves! We hope that this unit will include a visit to a local farm where the children will also learn about the origin and growth of the ingredients required to make bread. 

Our memorable experiences will be educational visits to: The Madina Masjid Mosque in Sheffield and an exciting trip to the National Space Centre in Leicester which will be “out of this world”.
