Welcome to Year 5!

Mrs G Hall - Higher Level Teaching Assistant
Autumn Term 2018
It is all heroes and monsters in Year 5.....the topic that is! We are learning about Myths and Legends and life in Ancient Greece. The children are showing great energy and enthusiasm for their learning and as well as wonderful reading and writing have also produced clay pots, tasted olives, built mazes, constructed helmets and dug as archaeologists. There is a lot more to come before Christmas!
Year 5 are excelling at Times Tables Rockstars and we already have a number proudly wearing their bronze, silver and gold badges. We will keep practising because we want to be as confident with our number facts as we can be.
We have gained some fans too, far and wide, for our excellent singing and also a thought provoking video we made for National Hate Crime Awareness Week. Both of these can be seen on our school Twitter (@thythornfield) or here on our Year 5 page.
In Computing we have animated cartoon characters (these animations can be seen on our Year 5 page) and we are currently coding complicated procedures to draw the Minotaur's maze!
