Welcome to K2 – we are the Year 5 class at Fosse Bank. Below is a taster of our exciting curriculum, and the hard work we put into our learning!
Year 5 took part in their first Class Assembly of the year.
We celebrated the time of King Arthur – was he really a hero who defended the Britons against the Anglo-Saxon invaders or is he simply a legend?
In March, we went on a school trip to the Science Museum, where we explored the space exhibition and watched an IMAX movie called ‘A Beautiful Planet’. Here are some of the boys in the museum – learning lots!
We have been using poems we enjoy reading to inspire our own poetry writing. We then performed them thinking about movement, volume and intonation – this was great practise for the upcoming poetry recital.
Year 5 put their artist hats on and worked hard to improve their drawing skills, in a series of drawing lessons taught by a specialist teacher. They worked with a range of materials including pencil, chalk, ink and even bread (as a rubber). The art produced in these sessions was stunning!
We were learning about the water cycle as part of our geography unit ‘Water’s Never Ending Journey’. Take a look at the models we made to explain the water cycle.
