Year 5

Welcome to the year 5 page.

Our topic for this half term is: You shall see wonders!

“Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.” 
Year 5 will be having the greatness of William Shakespeare thrust upon them this half term since they will be introduced to a whole new world of wonders. The children will be exploring the features of play scripts through analysing and acting out parts of William Shakespeare's work such as The Tempest, Romeo & Juliet and many more.  You shall see wonders when you come to see our Shakespeare showcase, which will be taking place on Wednesday 5th December.
Other than studying William Shakespeare's wonders, the children will be analysing maps of Haddenham and the wider area with the end goal being them designing their own maps. We are very excited to be using a variety of scientific equipment to separate mixtures through sieving, evaporating and filtering. To finish the term we will be making Christmas decorations and joining in with the festive spirit by learning Christmas songs.
