Kestrels' Class Page - Year 5
Our class is called Kestrels and our teacher is Mr Girling.
In our writing lessons, we will be writing a warning tale based on the ancient myth of Icarus. In maths, pupils will be focusing on shapes. This will include calculating area and perimeter, finding co-ordinates on a grid, and calculating volume of a 3D object. In history, we will be studying the Norman conquest of England and in geography, we will be looking at the rainforests of Brazil.
Our RE topics this term include learning about the eucharist (communion) and what it means to Christians. We will also be exploring Buddhism. Our science lessons will cover reproduction in plants and in animals (not including humans). We will also look at the changes that occur as humans go through puberty.
This term our P.E. lessons will be on Mondays and Wednesdays. Our PE lessons include team building activities and also some hikes into the nearby countryside.
