Hazel Class Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 class page. This is the place to find out about all the learning in Year 5.

If your child is unable to attend school we want you to complete the work that has been set. 

Research shows that children who consolidate their school learning at home, make better progress at school overall.  It is with this rationale that we focus our home learning tasks.  By setting home learning we aim to encourage a strong and positive partnership between home and school; to enable parents to support classroom work and to ensure that children make the best possible progress.

Topic – Fieldwork

This half term the children will be focusing their learning on the geographical topic ‘Fieldwork’. Through this topic they will be able to develop their knowledge of why geographers do fieldwork. They  will begin by learning what fieldwork is and then explore why geographers carry out fieldwork. They will also learn about a fieldwork study currently being completed by social geographer Esther Hitchen.

 

 

During the current School Closure, we will be communicating and setting Home Learning tasks through Google Classroom, where you are also able to upload your child’s work. Please use Google Classroom to find additional resources to supplement your child’s remote learning.
