Welcome to Year 5.
Our class is called Cosmos.
Our teacher is Mr Walker and our teaching assistant is Mrs Garcia.
The cosmos is the sum total of everything — pretty big. It's hard to wrap your mind around the cosmos, as it extends far beyond the Milky Way, or far-off galaxies, or even our own universe.
Cosmos is originally a Greek word, meaning both "order" and "world," because the ancient Greeks thought that the world was perfectly harmonious and impeccably put in order. We now use cosmos without the idea of perfect order. Now it means, "all of creation," and particularly on the scale of the stars, the planets, the black holes, the other universes, and all the stuff we don't know about. It's also, totally separately, the name of a pretty, flowering Mexican herb.
Children will be taught English, Maths, Science, PE, PSHE, RE, French, Music, Art and Design Technology thoughout the year.
In Year 5 children will be learning about the following topics:
Today Key Stage 2 pupils had a Roadshow by BAE Systems and The Royal Air Force.
The presentation was both exciting and informative bringing Science and Engineering to life. Pupils got to see laser beams reflected and a Rubens tube demonstrating how fire can dance using sound waves.
