Welcome to Year 5 - Sanchez
Welcome to Sanchez Class! Our teachers are Mrs Forbes and Mr Lee 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!
Mrs Coulshed really enjoys teaching us through a variety of ways including creative writing, investigations and observations, drama, singing and both indoor/outdoor learning.
In the Autumn Term our topic is ‘The Vikings!’ We get to learn lots of Viking Stories through songs, find out about how Vikings lived, write our own Viking Saga’s, find out how England changed throughout the Viking times and make our own water tight longboat!
Our other topic for this term is Space, where we get to learn about scientific theorists through time and listen ‘The Planets’ by Holst, and cooking, where we make our own Pizza’s.
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!
We also learn how to code and create our own video games by visiting Onslow Secondary School! Another favourite time is exploring forces and materials out in our school’s wildwood!
The Summer Term is a busy one! We love 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. One of our favourite parts of this term is our Y5/6 production! We love singing and acting out the songs!
