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: Miss Ahmed, 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.

Spring Term

During the Spring Term, the children will be learning about the environmental impact and human processes associated with “Food Trade”. This sequence of Geography learning will provide the children with a deeper understanding about where their food is imported from and what products the UK exports. In addition, they will also have an opportunity to taste different types of chocolate and research the production of cocoa. 

In history, Year 5 will be focusing on Imperialism and Colonialism. They will be given the opportunity to debate and discuss power and privilege, whilst learning about significant individuals such as Mary Prince and Olaudah Equiano, both of whom who sought to abolish slavery during the 19th century. We will then research the cause and consequence of their actions, and how they helped shape modern civilization. 

In art, we will be concentrating on architecture. The children will be constructing sculptures of aquatic wildlife from recycled pieces of plastic, taking inspiration from Veronika Richterova, who has famously produced some incredible artwork and sculptures from recycled waste, along with El Anatsui and Michelangelo. This sequence of art learning lends itself well to our geography topic as the children will be able to discuss and understand the environmental impact of pollution and plastic waste on our oceans. We also have a trip to see the Halle Orchestra in the spring term and will be exploring bread production in DT! Staff:
