Welcome to Year 5 from Mr Ames
Hello and welcome to Year 5- Our teacher is Mr Ames and he is supported by supported by a brilliant team who include: Mrs Moon and Mrs Burnett.
There is a very exciting first term planned with many opportunities for new and different experiences for your child to have. From cooking, to outdoor learning, to trips to new/exciting places, their first term in Year 5 promises to be a fun filled one. Over the Autumn term, we will begin to explore, through our topics, the world in which we live. Starting in our very own village of Skellingthorpe, the class will explore the geography of our local area, maps and go out an explore the local environment. We will then move across to Europe and America, comparing lives, history and geography of these areas before landing in South America and the Amazon Rainforest!
Later this term, we will be visiting Twycross Zoo; exploring the different animals of the rainforest and discussing whether we think that keeping animals in zoos is a positive or negative.
