Welcome to Year 5 - Macaw!
It is without doubt that year 5 is indeed a very exciting place to be, where else could you travel into space, be transformed to idillic countryside locations, produce beautiful art work of your environment, see an Aztec sacrifice, program your own animation and be back in time for homemade biscuits for tea and a bit of times table practice?!
In Macaw class you will be guided on this journey by Mr Evans and Miss Westlake but of course which direction it takes is often up to you.
What do Macaw class think...
'I love literacy because we combine it with other subjects; my favourite was when we read Street Child and wrote in role as the Victorian boy Jim Jarvis'. - Sophia
'My favourite part of maths was doing ratio and proportion. It was hard at first but I soon got the hang of it! I also like all the games we play'. - Emma
'We looked at Solids, Liquids and Gases, I really liked it because we did all the experiments up close!' -Sophie
'In history this year we have looking at how the Victorians lived. We found out about workhouses for the poor, Victorian toys, schools for the rich and poor and famous Victorians like Barnardo.' - Aaryaman
'In Geography we have been learning about Grasmere, a little village in the Lake District. It's very nice, very quiet and very peaceful indeed... until all the tourists arrive!' - Jody
We all went the Tate Gallery as part of our art lessons. It was really fun and we saw so many masterpieces. When we came back we had a go a recreating so pictures for ourselves.' - Shakeela
'I really enjoyed designing and making biscuits. Then we got to sell them to the rest of the school.- Deqa
