Year Five - Mrs Stirk/Miss Southall

Welcome to Class 5SS!


Welcome to our class webpage.  We are delighted to be teaching Class 5SS and we are looking forward to an interesting year ahead. 

We have so many exciting activities planned this half term.  Our topic is based on the ancient civilisation of Maya.  We will be learning about how they lived and how this has impacted on life today.  The Mayan people loved chocolate, so we have linked our English work to the novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. 


We will also be exploring and investigating chocolate before designing our own.  Delicious! 


In science we will explore the properties of chocolate and other materials as well as investigating the property of absorbency in more depth.  We will also explore different techniques for separating various materials.


We are really looking forward to learning about skiffle bands and how we can make music out of everyday objects, before designing our own.


An action-packed half term!








We have been recognising and using roman numerals in our maths lessons.  Check out our work below:

We started our science topic by examining materials and sorting them according to their properties.  We discussed the various properties with our partners and then sorted the materials into a Venn diagram.
