5CW's Right's Respecting Class Charter

Term 3

In Term 3, Year 5 are going to be investigating the Sustainable Development Goal of Gender Equality. The focus of our learning will focus on the question "why are so many children prevented from going to school?" Our ambition for this term, will be to create a song or rap about the hardships faced in countries which result in less opportunities for quality education. Alongside this enquiry, our writing will be based on the book 'The boy at the back of the class' which tells the story of a young refugee coming to a new country to learn, make friends and to build a new life. Please check our Enquiry E-Book and class page for updates on our fantastic learning!

We loved using this day to help us practice for our Ambition of writing a rap!

Article 28 Access to education.  Being athletes. 


Who would have thought holding static positions could be so much fun.  Sporting chance helped us master the skill of mirroring and holding shapes by playing lots of fun games.  Some of our photos are of nouns - can you guess any? 

Term 2

In Term 2, we will be continuing with our enquiry 'What does ethics have to do with clothes?'. As change makers,  we will work towards creating speeches to raise awareness about fast fashion and child labour as well as educating our audience about how we can shop sustainably.

This we have pulling all our knowledge together from our previous PE lessons and having a mini inter-house competition. 

Christmas in a Box! - Article 14: Freedom of Thought and Religion

In Week 7, we were very lucky to have Rev. Lisa visit us. We explored and learned about Mary, Joseph, the shepherds and the three wise men and their involvement in the birth of Jesus and the Christmas story. 



6CW love love love reading!

Being a technician.


Today we became programmers and enjoyed designing, debugging and writing programmes to accomplish specific goals.  We controlled physical systems with skill, solved problems with our purple powers and sequenced accurately.  

Being artists.


Today we explored printing and had fun practising how to make prints.  We discussed difficulties and evaluated what we needed to do differently to help us succeed when we make our final product.  

Space Maths Day! Article 28: Access to Education



Today we had an incredible day being amthematicians on our whole school matths day! We explored space and learned about 3D shapes and nets. We used this knowledge to create our very own rocekts. After this, we became scientists and invatigated how far our rockets would fly. Take a look at our learning!


No Pens Monday and Odd Socks Day! Article 12: Sharing thoughts freely


Today, we had a fantastic time working on our oracy skills as part of no pens day. We thought about how we use oracy in every day life. We then used our oracy skills to make predictions based on our new class book. As well as this, we designed our of figures using cubes and explained these designs to our classmates. We then learnt the Odd Socks song and performed these with our very own odd sock puppets!

Term 1

This term, Year 5 will be using their skills as historians to learn all about life as a Victorian. We will be linking this knowledge with our writing which will be based around the book 'Street Child', a true story from the Victorian period. We will also be using our skills as geographers to find out more about slavery and fast fashion and using this new knowledge to create speeches that will raise awareness of child labour and the importance of fair trade. Keep an eye out on our class page to see all of our fantastic learning! 

Year 5 Curriculum Map 2021-22


We were lucky enough to be visited by Munerra Pilgrim - a professional speaker who often performs on Radio one and speaks on pause for thought.  She helped inspire us to write our own speeches to raise awareness of child labour, fair trade and fast fashion.

Being authors. 

We loved today's outdoor learning which really helped us remember and perfect all the rules of our complex sentences.  Mrs Williams hid a number of main clauses and subordinate clauses around our school grounds.  We then had to run around to find a good match and record on our whiteboards.  

Farmer's Week

Article 27: The right to nutritious food

In week 6, we took part in Farmer's Week. We started by exploring what was meant by 'Farmer's market' and the term, 'Field to Fork'. We used this to help us order the stages of food production - from cow to yogurt; sow to sausage and bee to honey.


Next, we split into groups. One group was led by our resident gardener - Mr Evans in the allotment distributing and raking compost and planting seeds. In the other session, we were joined by visitors from The Travelling Kitchen who taught us how to make some beetroot rosti and a bean chilli 


At the end of the day we got to taste the things Year 5 had made and share them with our parents and carers. We've had a great week being farmers and look forward to tasting more of our school-grown produce!

School Library Visit! For the Love of Reading - Article 31: Rest, Play, Culture and Arts

Another area of the school which has been locked away, has been the library. Today we got to spend some much appreciated time in the library where we could enjoy and explore the amazing books we have at SSJS! 

Playpod! - Article 31: Rest, Play, Culture and Arts

Because of COVID, our beloved playpod equipment has been locked away for ages. Thursday we were finally allowed to play with it! The PTA had spent ages clearing it out and re-stocking it with new and exciting junk! The playpod helps us to develop our imaginations and release important energy during lunch times. Have a look at what we've been doing today.

PE! - Article 31: Rest, Play, Culture and Arts
