In the case of a school closure due to coronavirus, please see the weekly timetable below. A new timetable for each week will be available on the Monday morning from 9am. Answers for the previous week will also be posted on the following Monday. Please mark your child's work and try to guide them with their corrections.

 

It is likely that this period of time will be talked about for many years to come and will become part of British History. Why not become a historian and gather evidence of this time to pass onto future generations. Please gather as much evidence as you can - this can be photo's of things you did whilst off school, newspaper extracts, interviews with family members and diary entries written by yourselves of your feelings and daily routine. We will put it all together when we come back to school in a mini-journal for future generations to learn from - become part of history!!

Welcome to Inspire Year 5

 

Welcome to Inspire class! We are a class of twenty-three children who are supported in our learning by our teachers Miss Fleming and Miss Ward.

 

Now we are in Year 5, we have lots of responsibilities around the school including being good role models for each other and the younger children; and taking on roles in the School Council, Sports Leaders, Literacy Leaders and GIFT Team.

 

As well as learning all kinds of information and skills, we have lots of fun too! During the year, we will be finding out all about the Vikings and Saxons; learning about the environment in our ‘Go Green’ topic; discovering what life was like for children in Victorian times; studying the geography of the USA; examining evidence in our detective fiction ‘Baker Street’ topic and learning about Earth and Space. As always, there will be plenty of opportunity to delve into the topics to gain a greater understanding of how the world works in a creative and inspiring way.

 

All this, in addition to preparing for our Christmas production, developing our social and teamwork skills at Robinwood and taking part in Bikeability! It is set to be an action packed year of learning!

There will be opportunities for our families to join us for assemblies and topic afternoons during the year.  We look forward to showing you how we develop and progress as we work hard in our learning.

Design Technology Day 

 

 

 

Topic Afternoon

On Thursday, 3rd October, parents and carers of children in year 5 were invited into our History afternoon to explore their current topic, Vikings and Saxons. The children were asked to create their own Viking shield made from cardboard, create their own design and paint it in their own Viking colours. The children were very creative in their designs and had a lot of fun making them with their families. Thank you once again to all who came to support, your help was very much appreciated!

For our British Values research, Year 5 participated in a debate at the Riverside for UK Parliament Week. The topic for discussion was how to improve the environment in Whitworth. The children had to research ways to make Whitworth an environmentally friendly place and made suggestions like having a community garden in which to grow locally produced fruit and vegetables; reducing plastic  through initiatives with local shops; planting further trees within the local area for cleaner air and promoting the use of walk to work for all local residents. The ideas were welcomed by the local councillors and the children represented the school confidently and with real respect.

Topic Afternoon - The Victorians

 

The parents and carers of children in Inspire class were invited into school to participate in a book and a bacon sandwich event. The aim of the afternoon was to provide parents and carers with an insight into what their children were learning in class; what their current class text was about and to create a piece of art that represented the era we were currently studying. (They also got a bacon sandwich to keep them going for the afternoon!)The children and adults created some excellent representations of the book Street Child and it even got competitive with their art work!! It was lovely to see adults and children sharing a book together and explaining their own learning on such an important era in our British History. Thank you to all who made it.

Whitworth Historical Museum Visit

 

On Wednesday, 5th February 2020, Inspire class went on a visit to the Whitworth Historical Museum to learn more about the Victorian era within Whitworth. The aim of the trip was to inform the children of how Whitworth was an Industry village with transport and employment links that are significantly different to how we live today. Whilst at the museum, the children explored clog making, learned how people dressed back in Victorian Whitworth, discovered what jobs both male and female children would perform and explored the way of life people had then in comparison to the technology that exists today. The children had a great time dressing up and they asked lots of really deep questions, which impressed the volunteers at the museum.
