Welcome to Year 5 and Caradoc class! Our class is taught by Miss Hughes and supported by Mrs Row and Mrs Clorley.
George Bellows' 'Men of the Docks' (1912). The image centered around our whole school Take One Picture theme
Welcome back after the summer holidays and to Year 5! Our whole school topic this term is ‘Take One Picture,’ where we will be focusing our work around a painting by artist George Bellows called ‘Men of the Docks.’ We aim to contribute work to the exhibit at the National Gallery in London alongside other schools across the country.
Our English this term will cover a variety of fiction and non-fiction genres linked to our topic. This includes fictional diary entries based on the novel ‘When Jenny Came Across the Sea,’ study of a film narrative called ‘Home Sweet Home’, non-chronological reports and biographies to explain our learning about the life of immigrants to America.
In Maths, we plan to extend our knowledge of the number system. This term, we will be focusing on place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division facts, area and perimeter and statistics.
Linked to the painting by George Bellows, in Caradoc class we will be learning about immigration in America, why it happened and its importance as well as and what it was like to be an immigrant at the start of the 1900s. In Geography, we will be learning about the human and physical features of North and South America and where immigrants travelled from across the world. We also aim to look at the fashion in America during the early 1900s and have a go at creating our own clothing using textiles.
