Year 5 - Cherry Platts

Welcome to Cherry Platts!

We are Year 5s and we have a busy and exciting year.

Our classroom looks out onto the beautiful views across the fields behind the school and we regularly have opportunities in our learning to take advantage of the wonderful nature that surrounds us.

In the Autumn term, we love learning about the Anglo Saxons and Vikings which is linked in with our Art and English: we read The Nowhere Emporium about a wonderful, magical travelling shop and then move onto the Anglo-Saxon legend of Beowulf with its terrifying monsters and sea-dragons. The Science topics are Earth and the Solar System and then Forces. Our PSHE topics cover: Families and friendships and Safe Relationships.

The Spring Term is when our topic is all about North America: its natural and physical geography. English, Art and Design are focused around another continent, Africa. We will also be looking at Crime and Punishment across the centuries, linking it with Macbeth and the Highwayman in English, and having fun with Graffiti Art.

Throughout the year, we of course have daily Maths lessons, which are based on the Maths Mastery approach to the curriculum, full of challenges and varied approaches

What an action-packed year we have ahead!
