Welcome to Van Gogh - Year 5!
Van Gogh Class Page
The Year 5 team is Miss Jackson, the Y5 teacher, along with Mrs Kilby who support the children with their learning.
Mrs Lewis Nelson will also be spending time with Van Gogh during the week.
Within our class we will go is on promoting a safe environment for learning whilst supporting a healthy mind. The imperative nature of mental health meanders throughout our curriculum.
Our concept this term is Tolerance which is intertwined within our reading, writing and other aspects of the curriculum.
Within PSHCE we will be investigating this further. Our class reader this term is The Boy at the Back of the Class which features contemporary topics involving refugees. This links directly to our topic within RE where we investigate the culture and faith of Islam.
We have an array of fantastic sporting opportunities this year including: hockey, gymnastics, dance, athletics, cricket and football. Our PE is integrated during our science learning as we learn more about the human body. We also investigate how materials react and change state based on temperature and other variables. The children will be exposed to scientific learning through experiments as well as written learning.
Books are essential to learning and we have some sensational stories ready for the year, these include: The Promise, The Girl that Speaks Bear, Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls, Manfish, Aladdin, The People Awards and many others.
In Van Gogh we use the school's values, faith and local context as much as possible to create opportunities to bring the curriculum to life and include the wider world in our classroom.
Please keep checking the school Twitter feed and back to our page for updates.
