Edison Class Year 5
Welcome to Edison Class.
In Edison Class the teacher is Mrs Greenwood and the teaching assistance is Mrs Daftar.
This term, we are learning about Gadgets and Gizmos in our Theme lessons. In Science we will learn about: the spread of bacteria; how sound travels; recap and revise forces including friction and learn about light, shadows and electricity. In History and Geography we will learn all about the life of a Victorian person, which will include discovering transport, education and mining. In Computing we will be creating graphs, coding and using websites to learn about levers, pulleys and gears. In PE we will continue with the Prince William Award in Year 6 and develop our team working skills through games in Year 5. In Art and DT we will look at designers and their technical drawings, create our own technical drawings and use pulleys, levers and gears to make our own inventions. In Writing your child will create character descriptions, write diary entries and write explanations about their own inventions. In Maths your child will learn about place value and the four operations. Cooking sessions and outdoor learning lessons will take place throughout the year.
In Year 6 we have the Prince William Award lessons on Thursday. Your child may need separate suitable clothing for these sessions, but a text will be sent when this is needed. When this award finishes, Year 6 will have PE on these days, so PE kit will be required from April.
