Langley Moor Primary School

Class 5

(Year 5)

Welcome to Class 5!  This is a place where we learn together.  Taking time to contribute our thoughts and ideas to lessons is encouraged.  It is a safe place to make mistakes, as this is one way we learn from each other and develop our understanding. 

Throughout the year we will study various topics including the Vikings, space, the Maya, biomes and the look at the local history of Langley Moor.  Durham University will support our understanding of the Vikings with a visit to our classroom.  In the Spring Term, we will deepen our understanding about space with a visit to the Centre for Life’s planetarium.  Our science during the Summer Term focuses on living things.  We will become naturalists and observe the life cycle of a butterfly in our classroom.  Also, we will have a visit from some weird and wonderful creatures to help us understand the similarities and differences between mammal, amphibian, insect and bird life cycles.  To help us understand what Langley Moor mining community was like, we will visit Beamish Museum and take a trip down the mine!  For those of us who love sport, we will take part in a tag rugby festival in the Spring Term – let’s hope the weather stay dry!

Being in Upper Key Stage 2 means that we have more responsibilities.  We will have the opportunity to help with the younger children in the Key Stage 1 yard.  It is great fun teaching the children new games and playing with them.
