Year Five

Firstly a warm welcome back to St James and to Year 5.

This year both classes have adopted an animal for their class name. The children thought long and hard about which animal would best represent them.

  • Mrs Langley’s class are the Diligent Doves.
  • Miss Rosenberg’s class are the Dynamic Dogs.

Our Diligent Doves will be supported by Miss Hetherington, Miss Miller and Mrs Hunter.

Our Dynamic Dogs will be supported by Mrs Gibbons.

Year 5 have some wonderful activities planned for the new school year and this proves to be a fantastic year to be a Diligent Dove or a Dynamic Dog.

In Year 5, we have rounded our “Out of this world” topic off by designing and making moon buggies, with the support of Mr Hepp.

Our learning journey this term has taken us through learning about engineers and being problem solvers, through learning about the human and physical features of Florida and through Science investigations and observations related to Space. We have learnt lots of facts about the history of space travel and now know how the planets move and all about the phases of the moon. We are very much looking forward to our next topic – After The Heartbreak.
