Welcome to Year 5 Hockney
Welcome to Hockney Class! Our teachers are Mr Hoffman and Mrs Forbes and our teaching assistant is Mrs Wiedenstriet. In our class, we love learning through a creative curriculum and always try our best throughout all lessons!
In the Autumn Term our topic is ‘The Mayans’. We get to learn a lot about how the Mayans lived through many fun games and activities, such as making top trump cards about the many Mayan Gods. Our other topic for this term is Space, where we get to learn about scientific theorists through time and create solar system models inside shoe boxes.
In the Spring Term our topics look at Rivers – we get to pond dip and explore local landscapes to identify human and physical Geographical features, as well as making our own dams as part of our D&T topic. We also look at Forces in Science where we get to do some great experiments including our friction and parachute challenges!
Then the Summer Term will be a busy one; getting involved in sports day, country dancing and our history topic is ‘The Ancient Greeks!’ We have lots of fun dressing like Greeks, eating Greek food, learning Greek dances and learning all about Greek myths and legends. We even make our own Greek Temples!
