For those of you who don’t know me my name is Mrs Judd and this Autumn I will be a class teacher in year 5.
I have been working in Southfields as a year 2 teacher for the past four years. I am excited for a brand new year here at Southfields and I look forward to having an amazing learning journey next year and helping your child to succeed and develop. I am so excited to be working in Year 5.
At Southfields we have spent time together thinking about making our curriculum much more cohesive to ensure that we are covering a range of objectives throughout all lessons. We have ensured great links are being made in all areas. We believe that this will allow the children the opportunity to become thoroughly absorbed in their learning and embed the key principles of the curriculum in a much more organic way.
In Autumn term we begin with 'Our Earth and Space Expedition' where we’re blasting off into space on an intergalactic adventure!
Come with us as we travel through the galaxy exploring space travel, stars and planets. Are you going to be brave enough to travel to space in our planetarium? Could you discover a planet of your own? Our voyage is rounded off by a trip to the Leicester Space Centre that will send us to cloud nine!
In the Spring term we will be exploring 'Britain through the ages!' starting with a look across the North sea which might you give you a scare! Viking long boats are making their way to shore. This topic will look at leaders through the monarchy during Anglo-Saxon, Viking and Tudor periods. Pupils will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in all aspects of British history during this period including a visit to the Jorvik Centre.
Finally, we will end the year looking at our capital 'The Big Smoke!' and how it has changed over time.
Rule Britannia! Britannia rules the Waves. Voyaging down the River Thames our London topic links with our Year 5 residential trip looking at the Victorian era and the rule of Queen Victoria. It will be a right royal affair during the summer term.
In Year 5,children will continue to receive daily spellings, times tables and reading as they did in middle school. They will also need to complete their daily diary entries and weekly blue learning log homework. These will be sent home every Friday and children will have until the following Tuesday to bring them back to school. We appreciate your support and are here to answer any questions. If you wish to speak with any of the Year 5 team please do not hesitate to contact us on Class Dojo or appointments made via the office.
