Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 page. The Staff in Year 5 are Miss Middleton and Miss Tuxworth in 5M and Miss Smith and Mrs Haywood in 5S. 

This term we have been enjoying learning about our topic on the Wild West. We have learnt lots about how the Native Americans lived and how the pioneers came over and settled in the New world. We have also become game designers and created our own board games with a Wild West theme.

We have made totem poles and false face masks, with dream catchers still to come! We have written myths and non-chronological reports about the Wild West. We have also written instructions on how to repair a prairie wagon wheel. We are currently writing diary entries about a trip along the Oregon trail. 

In the weeks to come we while be finding out about how different materials react with each other through lots of fun experiments.
