The teacher in year 5 this year is Mr Ward and the teaching assistants are Mrs Keegan and Mr Mather.
Our theme this half term is Earthlings. Throughout this half term we will be focusing on science, music and Art. During our science lessons, we will be exploring space! We will be looking at the shape of the Earth, sun and moon and exploring all the other plants in our solar system! A mobile planetarium will also be coming to school during this half term! In Music, we will be exploring the music of the famous composer, John Williams. In Art, we will be recreating the moon's surface using mod roc (something we have become masters at using this year!)
We have PE on a Monday and we have cricket sessions with a cricket coach from Skelmersdale Cricket Club on a Wednesday. Please do not forget to make sure you have your PE kit in school on these days.
We are swimming this half term! Our swimming day is Thursday this year so do not forget your swimming kit on this day!
The children in year 5 will have the opportunity to develop their ukulele skills even more this year as they will have a ukulele lesson every Monday until the end of the year.
