The Class 5 Teacher is Mrs Pollock, supported by Mrs Davies
Welcome to the Class 5 page. Class 5’s teacher is Mrs Pollock, supported by Mrs Davies and Mrs Hinder.
Our question for the year is ‘How do we show humanity?’
Each of the six terms will consider an aspect of humanity – as a class, we will consider these features of humanity with discussion, writing tasks, projects, and through the learning of our own history.
Autumn term focus: Ethics and Democracy.
The Ancient Greeks were dynamic in their thirst for discovery and for modern thinking. We will study the universe in detail, starting with the Big Bang following Aristotle and Pythagoras in their theories. This is the start of our journey in humanity and we will release a Physics podcast to keep you posted!
Spring term focus: Community and Responsibility.
Humans have a deep sense of community and this is an important aspect in our forming relationships. The Geography we cover is based on our locality, and we examine the historic evidence in our village that leads us to today. We also focus on comparison with Ghana and the charity ATE. In History, we review the build-up to the Roman invasion in Wiltshire. Finally, in Biology, we study the lifecycles of several organisms and look in detail at the stages of development in humans.
Summer term focus: Compassion and Integrity.
Terms 5 and 6 are focused on the Romans. They were a formidable bunch who had quite an impact on our tiny island – we will study these acheivements alongside the consideration of their compassion – invasions and brutality were elements to their success. Speaking of elements, we are also cover Chemistry for the last part of the year! We will revisit atoms and then move onto material properties and changes.
