Our Year 5 team consist of Mrs Barnett (who is also the Deputy Head) and Miss Higginbottom who are the Y5 teachers and they are supported by Mrs Turner and Miss Hart.
We are excited to be working with our new classes and are looking forward to a successful year ahead with a creative curriculum to ensure all the children have a chance to shine.
What an amazing jam-packed day Year 5 had at Sudbury Hall! From a Victorian classroom experience, to climbing a ‘chimney’ and building on our understanding
of forces with toys through the ages - it was a whirlwind day full of fun and learning!
The children’s behaviour was impeccable from start to finish and the volunteers at Sudbury were amazing by how much the children already knew about the Victorian period!
Well done Year 5!
This year, Spire Junior School will have a Christmas tree inside the Crooked Spire and the children have worked hard to create beautiful decorations to adorn it!
Our first topic in Science has been ‘forces’ and the children have learnt so much! Here’s some pictures of our experiment where we tried to save our eggs from cracking by designing parachutes so they sail to earth safely! Ask your child what they’ve learnt about forces - you may be surprised by just how much they can tell you!
The children have learnt that William Morris mostly used natural designs in his work so we decided to head into nature and select some freshly fallen leaves to sketch. The children took these leaves into class and carefully sketched and shaded them before creating a William Morris inspired design!
