Class 5

Pirates of the Curry Bean

Apologies for the short notice, but Year 5 pupils need to be dressed as either sailors or pirates for the performances, except for the children playing rats and monkeys.  Please send these in on Monday for the dress rehearsal. 


Due to the hot weather could you please apply sun cream before school and ensure that children have a water bottle with them.  In addition, could they also bring a sun hat to wear at break and lunch times as they will be going outside.  We will remind them to stay in the shade and not run around as much as normal.  Due to this we will be removing the footballs while the temperature is especially high. 

Many thanks

Welcome back to the final term of the year.


Miss Morgan and Mrs Lee have started working in the class.  Miss Morgan will work Monday morning, Tuesday and Wednesday.  Mrs Lee will be in on Monday afternoon, Thursday and Friday.  If you have anything you need to discuss do not hesitate to come and find one of us.


Term 6 is always a busy term.  The children will be working hard on their new Rivers topic, reading Kensuke's Kingdom in English and continuing all of the other subjects.  You have the class assembly to look forward to later in the term, the end of year production, sports day and many other events. 


PE will be on Tuesdays this term but please ensure PE kits are in all of the time as timetables do change.

Term 5 Topic

This term's topic is the is based around local history.


Throughout the term we will be learning about both Edward Jenner (from Berkeley) and Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

We will be exploring why these figures are so important to British history and looking at their greatest achievements.


In English we will be linking writing a persuasive letter to the writers of '100 Great Britons list' in favour of one of our historical figures.


In DT we will be using Brunel's famous bridge structures to inspire our own designs, which we will test on a number of factors.
