Welcome to Year 5 Sanchez
Welcome to Sanchez Class! Our teacher is Miss Ellis and our teaching assistant is Miss Clark. 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 the different planets, as well as making our own solar system models inside shoe boxes.
In the Spring Term we look at Rivers – we get to pond dip and explore local landscapes, 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, water resistance and air resistance challenges!
Then Summer Term is always a busy one; getting involved in sports day and country dancing. We also have a Greek Day as part of our history topic on ‘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 Parthenons!
