Class 5 – Thoresby

Thoresby Class is taught by Mr Borman

Obviously the best Year 5 class in the county country WORLD, any pupils lucky enough to be part of Thoresby Class can look forward to a range of exciting topics this year. In geography, we will be looking at South America, rivers and mountains and using fieldwork skills in the local area. the In history,  We will be looking at the Shang Dynasty, The Vikings, and finally take ourselves back to the marvels of Ancient Greece.

But that’s not all. Oh not one bit. We will also be having a blast investigating and experimenting in science. Our topics will include testing materials and their properties, learning about the life cycles of plants and animals (including humans), SPACE (How awesome is that???) and investigating forces.

Year Five can also look forward to completing loads of artistic and design activities, including cooking, drawing and painting skills, model making and various themed pieces from our topics.

Please remember:

  • E kits and homework books on Wednesday,
  • Swimming kit on a Thursday,
  • Reading Records on a Friday. Spellings are also tested.

Weekly homework includes practice on Spelling Shed, Times Table Rockstars and reading four times a week. Extra pips are given to those who complete my optional challenges in each week’s homework!
