Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 school website. Our learning this year will be challenging, practical and memorable. All teachers really enjoy making a difference to every child every day. We start with finding out about life in Victorian Bradford, as well as looking at our class name – Vienna and Austria. The children will find out where it is, sample some of their national dishes and compare Vienna to Bradford and life in Britain in general. Over the year, we look at animals, plants and habitats. We will look in depth at Japan, using Kensuke’s Kingdom as our class text as well as life in Ancient Greece – common foods, buildings, clothes and weapons. We will be organising some educational visits during the year to support our learning; we will hopefully visit the Bradford Industrial Museum and/or Saltaire in the first term and will be visited by a ‘bug lady’ in the final term. It would be lovely to see any summer work completed abut Vienna or Athens and they can be added to our class displays.

If you have any concerns, please feel free to come and speak to us.

Thank you,

Mr Wickett and Miss Bibi
