Class 5 Review

Class 5 have had an eventful year full of exciting experiences.

As part of our topic in term 1 we took a trip to the National Portrait Gallery to add to our knowledge of the Tudors. We were able to take time to engross ourselves in the paintings and even managed to impress staff with our knowledge of the famous faces from history.

For our second history topic in term 2 we took a trip back in time and immersed ourselves in a WW2 experience day at the Kent Life Museum. The children dressed in costume and even had to bring ration inspired lunches… spam sandwiches anyone? The day involved getting into character whilst learning about the real events that shaped everyday life for those who faced the trials of wartime Britain.

The residential trip was a big occasion for many in Class 5; for some it was a trip away from home for the first time. It was lovely to see the children grow in independence and enjoy visiting new places. They returned to school with many stories to tell and enjoyed sharing these with passion and enthusiasm.

This term has seen the class take part in mountain bike lessons; an activity inspired by the different sports represented in the Olympics last year. There has been some amazing progress in such a short time. In addition to this: sports day, district sports and a Year 6 trip to Wimbledon has meant that many of the children are enthused to be sportsmen and women of the future.

Class 5 have also taken the lead role in the school play. With line learning, prop making and all-singing, all-dancing rehearsals, it has been a busy time of year for all involved. All the children are excited to show off what they have been working towards.
