Welcome to Van Gogh - Year 5!
Welcome to the Van Gogh class page of our school website.
The Year 5 team is Miss Armstrong, the Y5 teacher, along with Mrs Moss and Mrs Slater, who support the children with their learning.
Year 5 is an inspiring but busy year, packed full of new opportunities to excel both in and out of the classroom.
Our core ‘Concepts’ for this term are Discovery and Legacy with a focus on encouraging those wonderful ‘Aha! moments. We want to empower them and foster a love of learning.
Find out about how our new curriculum links with our key concept in our Spring newsletter.
In Van Gogh, we really enjoy our English lessons and completely immersing ourselves in a quality text. Last term we enjoyed Neil Gaiman’s ‘Sleeper and the Spindle’ and the writing produced was absolutely amazing! It even gained the attention of Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell (the illustrator)!
We are currently exploring Space through our Science lessons and are about to undergo our ‘Astronaut Training’. Photos to follow…
Some of the events happening this term for Y5 include:
The 'Forces' Learning event was a great success. The rockets flew to rounds of applause from the pupils, parents and Matisse class (who snuck out to watch).
