Welcome To Year 5!
As children enter the phase 3 team (and tackle the extra flight of stairs up to the top floor of the tower block) we aim to give the children a challenging, fun and varied curriculum as we push them to reach their full potential.
Our curriculum begins with our topic ‘Guardians of the Galaxy!’ . A hugely enjoyable topic, about space and the Ancient Greeks. The children become trainee astronauts, who investigate our solar system and the role payed by gravity.
The spring term theme is ‘A Trip Down Memory Lane’ This popular topic explores Victorian history focusing upon life in Victorian Bradford and the industrial revolution. We enjoy a stimulating visit to Bradford Industrial Museum, to immerse the children in local history and experience the delights of a Victorian classroom.
During the summer term we make more journeys and discoveries in our ‘Lost and Found’ theme. The highlight of the term must be when we abandon the classrooms and use our great outdoor spaces for the fun-filled ‘Island Day’
All pupils participate in weekly swimming lessons at Shipley Pool from September until February half term. Pupils continue on the progress made in their Year 4 swimming sessions, gaining confidence in the water and learning a range of personal survival skills.
We are very much looking forward to what promises to be a fantastic year
