Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

 

A huge welcome to Year 5! We are so glad you could drop by and see the wonderful work we are getting up to this year. This year will be full of hard work, great opportunities, success, personal achievement and a chance to form strong, positive relationships. Throughout the year, Year 5 shall be studying the following topics:

Autumn 1 – Journeys: Are we there yet?

Autumn 2 – How great was Queen Victoria?

Spring 1 – Is anybody out there?

Spring 2 – The Circle of Life

Summer 1 – Aztecs: How and why did their mighty Empire crumble in the 16th century?

Summer 2 – Miraculous Mountains: Can you climb a mountain in Wednesbury?

 

Over the course of this year, your children will be expected to gain confidence and independence, have high expectations of themselves and their future, be able to solve problems and tackle tasks in an efficient and creative manner. Through our daily learning questions, they will be able to lead their own learning and work collaboratively with their peers.

 

As we like to say here at Mesty Croft: ‘Believe and Achieve!’

Year 5 worked extremely hard working in groups to put their art gallery together - everyone had a thoroughly good day and learned alot about Aztec culture. We especially enjoyed the chilli hot chocolate!
