'Adventure Together; Learn Forever'


Welcome to Class 5RW.


On this page we will be sharing some of the learning which we are doing and class news.  You can also find links to home learning tasks linked with our topic.  As always, the most important activity that the children can do at home to support all of their learning is read, read, read!  


It has been a busy start to the new school year in 5RW, we have been working hard with our reading, writing and maths whilst exploring our topic of Let's Unite.  We have spent lots of time using atlases to help us understand the world around us and where we are within it.  We are now focussing more specifically on rivers and the journey which rivers take from source to sea. Ask your children about some of the technical vocabulary which we have been tackling!

Let's Unite Topic Overview

#HelloYellow - YOUNG MINDS


Today many of us came to school wearing yellow to help raise money for the mental health charity Young Minds.  We reminded ourselves that it is so important for us to take care of our well being and that when things are tough, we are not alone.  We have spent time in class thinking about how we can use our powers of resilience to help us and that it is ok not to be ok.  We have been designing some #HelloYellow superheroes - watch this space for when we share some of these. 


Alongside some of our discussions and activities, we had a lot of fun in our special #HelloYellow photo booth. Enjoy the slideshow!
