In Year 5 Sycamore class we have a theme of Space as this is one of our science topics and our class rules are displayed on different planets in our solar system.
We like to focus on a positive growth mindset and we enjoy using our zones of regulation to display how we are feeling each day. We also have worry buddies to talk to when we have any problems that we would like to talk about.
Year 5 is an exciting year, where children receive their pen licence and meet their ‘buddy’ in Nursery class. The children really benefit from the time spent with our youngest members of the Blue School and spend a lovely time reading to them in various corners of the Nursery.
This term, we have been reading some fantastic books such as Cosmic by Frank Cottrell-Boyce and Rooftoopers by Katherine Rundell. We have also been studying some interesting topics, including Slums, Earth and Space, the Kingdom of Benin, We are Game Developers, Properties and Changes to Materials, We are Cryptographers, Wisdom and Being Me in My World. We have also engaged in Black History Month, Remembrance Day, Friendship Week, Anti-Bullying Week, Children in Need and are now excited to be preparing for Christmas with our Advent activities, a wonderful trip to see the pantomime Cinderella and our filmed performance of Lessons and Carols.
During Year 5 we really see the children develop; we try to encourage them to be more independent and resourceful in their learning and help them develop strategies to cope with friendships, obstacles and feelings. By the end of July, our Sycamore seedlings are ready for Year 6!
