Hello, and welcome to Silver Birch. Our teacher is Mr Poulson. Our Learning Support Assistant is Mrs Fox.

After all our adventures in Year 3 and Year 4, Year 5 marks our transition into Upper Key Stage 2, which means there are higher expectations on us to ensure we are independent and responsible; we need to become role models for the younger children in the school!

We are ready to challenge ourselves in our learning, to work hard, and to show the right attitude that will help us to achieve our goals. This year we will be studying many interesting subjects. In geography, we will be looking at map reading skills and completing a location study of the world. In history we will be studying the Ancient Greek’s and the Mayan’s. Both of which are fascinating areas of study and allow the children to understand how ancient civilisations lived and how they contributed to the world we currently live in. Within Art, we will be looking at line and form and exploring different ways we can use a variety of equipment to come up with different artistic effects. Furthermore, in Design and Technology we will look at healthy eating and how we can design our own recipes which are tasty but healthy. In Silver Birch we will also continue our understanding of the French language and learn how to express our thoughts on shopping, pets and the world.

Alongside these, we will be further improving our English and maths. Using the basic skills, we have previously learnt, such as grammar, punctuation, spelling and timetables we will learn how to apply these to improve our writing and challenge ourselves in maths. We will also be reading plenty of books both at school and at home. We are developing a real love of reading!
