Welcome to Year 5!
My name is Justin Holmes and I am the Year 5 teacher. I feel extremely lucky to be able to teach this wonderful class again this year, and we look forward to making excellent progress together.
This year, our topics will be:
Autumn 1 - Beast Creator
Autumn 2 - Off With Her Head - The Tudors
Spring 1 - Stargazers
Spring 2 - Allotments - Dig for Victory WW2
Summer 1 - Peasants, Princes and Pestilence - 14th Century Britain
Summer 2 - Time Travellers
Our topic for the Summer 1 is Peasants, Princes and Pestilence. I am sure we will make many fascinating discoveries as we explore the dark and deadly world of the 14th century. This will include an in depth look at the devastating effect The Black Death had on Britain. We will be also conducting experiments and exploding our own versions of buboes! So, If you smell a rat, run!!
Please contact me by email if you have any questions or would like further information about our work in Year 5.
