Class 5St

Welcome to Year 5


During this term we will be studying the Romans and how they impacted Britain while they were here. One of our Science investigations  during this term will be linked to air resistance and how it affects the movement of objects. The text that we will be reading this term is 'The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe', written by C. S. Lewis. Excitingly, we shall have the opportunity to visit The  New Vic Theatre at the end of this term to see the story of The Prince and Pauper, written by Mark Twain. 

A visit to the British Ceramics Biennial Festival


Year 5 were very fortunate to be invited to visit the British Ceramics Festivial which took place at the Spode factory in Stoke on Trent. The children experienced a modern art exhibition which not only sparked their imagination but provided them with  an opportunity to see modern contempary art for the first time. The children were given a private guided tour by one of the managers from the festival explaining the meaning behind several of the exhibitions. During the second part of the visit the children had the opportunity to work with an artist who provided them with the opportunity to experience clay in a creative open way. The children thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity to be freely creative.
