'Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself' Chinese Proverb
Life in Year 5
Welcome to Year 5! We have spent many years at Eaves so far in our learning journey, and as such, we have we have started to gain lots of responsible jobs. In our class we have Junior Road Safety Officers who are responsible for helping to keep the school children safe. We also have Junior Leadership who work to make our school even better. And finally, we have B’s Buddies who spend time each day supporting our younger children at dinnertimes and making lots of fun games.
We have a busy year of learning including lots of interesting subjects including: the story of the Trojan Horse, Climate Change, Fairtrade and Earth and Space. We are set for a busy year!
Each day we learn new writing, reading and mathematics knowledge and skills, as well as a range of subjects over the week such as PE, Geography, History, Art and Spanish.
Our favourite part of the week is Thursday afternoons as this is when we spend time learning to swim. We are currently working towards swimming 25 metres in the pool!
