Welcome ToYear 5
The children will be delighted to know that both Mr Bavington and Mr Matthews will be teaching Year 5 this year. We are both thrilled to be working in a fabulous year group and we cannot wait to support and guide the children as they continue their learning journey through school.
Teaming up with these exceedingly fortunate teachers, we have Mr ‘Coach’ McCarroll, who worked in Year 5 last year and Miss Shugafi who worked with the children last year.
All members of staff are raring to get started and our strong team is eager to help the children excel this year in Y5.
Make sure you are following us on Twitter @Y5BMStradbroke to find out about learning and all that we’re getting up to.
An important reminder: Y5’s P.E. day is on Friday afternoon, so please make sure you have your PE kits. Mr Matthews’s class will be going to Ponds Forge every Thursday morning for their swimming class. It would be helpful if the children wore their swimming costumes under their school uniform when they arrive in the morning, as this will significantly speed up the time it takes to get ready once at the venue. Many thanks.

This term, the eager, brave learners and adventurers of Year 5 are travelling back in time explore the Victorian Era. They will learn about the types of living conditions, the effects of industrialisation and the British Empire’s desire to amass a multitude of natural resources.
The children will also have the opportunity to visit Kelham Island (located in the heart of Sheffield city centre) which was of significant importance during the transition of the British empire through industrialisation in the Victorian Era. This will be one of our #moments.
As Geographers, the children are going to analyse physical and human features prevalent in both Sheffield and South America. They will also determine the push and pull factors which influence migration between rural and urban settings. In Science, the children are going to examine properties and changes of materials, by conducting a variety of immersive investigations and comparative fair tests.
