Welcome to the University of Liverpool!

Hi, welcome to Year 5's Class Page, my name is Miss Wall and I have the pleasure of teaching this wonderful class. Take a look below to see what we do in Year 5 and how much they learn. I will also add homework and spellings each week just in case they get misplaced smiley. I look forward to sharing the children's brilliant work completed in class. 

 

Also don't forget to take a look at our school Facebook and Class Dojo pages for regular updates.

VE Day - Friday 8th May

As a school, we are going to be completing work this week to celebrate the 75th Anniverary of VE Day. Obviously Friday is a bank holiday so see below for some ideas on what to do on the actual day itself.

What is VE Day?

This marks the day that the Second World War ended in Europe. It happened when Germany (sometimes known as the Nazis) surrendered. It was not the end of the war completely though as it continued in the Pacific against Japan. The war officially ended there in September when their surrender was signed.

It marked the end of 6 years of war. It included countries from around the world and fighting took place on nearly every continent.

Welcome back all!

Very impressed with all of your hard work last week, I really enjoyed your perseverance and creativity. Below are the links to today's home learning tasks.

Tuesday morning got off to a very exciting start for Year One! Mr Lines spotted strange lizard like creatures around school on Monday night and after finding footprints in our classroom, Year One were determined to find out who or what had visited our school.

Super detective work commenced as the children began to study the footprints that had been left and compare the shape of them to dinosaurs in our dinosaur museum. Miss Millington and Mrs Jordan were a bit scared to go outside after seeing this but Year One wanted to go on a dinosaur hunt!

 

They were so brave and excellent dinosaur detectives. We followed the footprints into the woods where we found dinosaur bones and an egg!

After studying the evidence and comparing this with information from non-fiction books, Year One concluded the footprints were that of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

We are keeping the egg safe in class for now but who knows what will hatch out of it!
