Kingfishers Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 Kingfisher class.

The Class Teacher is Miss Rees and the Teaching Assistant is Mrs Withey. 

Come and look around our amazing classroom!

 

Over the summer, as part of our holiday homework we created Ancient Greek buildings.

Take a look at some of them below.

Enjoy!

In Summer Term 1, we learnt about the Indus Valley Civilisation and we looked at the physical features of the valley itself.  

This term we are lucky to be involved in a project run by Reading Museum. We were able to visit the Abbey ruins where we took photos and met a member of staff, who introduced us to the restoration works. We have been learning about the history of Reading and its Abbey. We learnt more about how mortar is being used to restore the Abbey building. This project will extend into Year Six where we will be involved in a TAKE OVER DAY EVENT in November.
