Year 5

Dear Year 5 parents/carers

What a great start to the summer term we have had! The children took part in an exciting river study last week, led by the instructors from Stanley Head. They got to visit three sites of the river Dane (including the source), learn lots of river vocabulary, and even get in the river to take measurements. Some of us got a little wet!

This term we also have lots more to look forward to, including learning all about rainforests in our new topic. In science we will carry out some investigations into our topics of forces and animals.

Here we are enjoying one of our experiments last term, which investigated soluble materials.

This busy summer term also includes our sports day, which we will practise for over the coming weeks. Let’s hope for some suitable weather.

Last term we were also lucky enough to visit the Potteries museum, where we were able to learn more about our topic of the Anglo-Saxons. We were able to look at the Staffordshire Hoard and imagined we were Anglo-Saxon villagers through an interactive story.

We’re hoping that our summer term will be just as exciting and we’re looking forward to learning lots more.
