Welcome to Class JG


Miss Greenstead

Miss Greensted is a year 5 teacher and the Computing subject leader. Outside of school she enjoys taking part in sporting events, spending time with her family and going to the theatre. 

Come and say hello to Miss Greensted at the end of the day!


Our topic this term will be 'Space Invaders' as part of this topic we will be sending a teddy into space! We will be sending him up with a camera so we can track his movements as he enters the stratosphere. We will be using the data and information we gather from the teddy's space mission to enrich our learning across Science, Geography and English. Alongside this we will look at forces in Science and the history of space travel. Finally at the end of the half term The Planet Suite we will be joining us as we transform the school hall into space so that we can experience it for ourselves. In RE we will be learning about Humanism, The Big Bang Theory and The Creation Story.

In Maths we will be looking mostly at place value, multiplication, division, subtraction and addition. We will be focusing on mastering these skills in maths through problem solving. 

In English and linking with our topic we will be learning how to create Non-Chronological Report about space in addition to this we will look at the features of visual Literacy using film clips as a stimulus for our own story writing. 


In the first half term we will be working towards becoming successful prefects as we take on additional responsibilties around the school. We are looking forward to a busy and exciting half term.
