Welcome to Year 5 Sanchez
Welcome to Sanchez Class! Our teacher is Miss Ellis and our teaching assistant is Mrs Toms. 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 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!
If this year goes according to plan then the Summer Term will be a busy one, getting involved in sports day, country dancing and preparing our classrooms for our schools ‘Green Lanes is Great’ evening. Our main topic during this term is Rivers and Mountains – 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. One of our favourite parts of this term is also our Y5/6 production (which we really hope we will get to perform this year) as we love singing and acting out the songs!
