Primary School

Foxes

Foxes' class is taught by Mr Cooper and supported by Mrs Woods.  

In the first half of the Autumn term, Year 5 will investigate 'Alchemy Island' where will we will begin to read The Storm Keeper’s Island by Catherine Doyle; this will be our class reader for the term. The second half of the Autumn takes us beyond the Earth’s atmosphere as we become 'Stargazers' and increase our knowledge and understanding of space. 

'Pharoahs' will capture our imagination in the start of the Spring term as our focus changes to ancient Egypt and we will begin our class reader for this term, which is The Phoenix Code by Helen Moss. As we move into the latter part of this term, our topic changes to 'Scream Machine' where the focus lies with mechanisms and forces. 

As we move into the Summer term, we will be concentrating on the Tudors in 'Off with Her Head!' before finishing the year with 'Beast Creator'; children’s knowledge and understanding of identification keys, food chains will increase while showcasing some of the deadliest beasts on the planet in this topic. Our class reader for this term will be Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.
