Welcome to

5G-Dumbledore's Army


"Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic."

Hello and welcome to the Year 5G class page! My name is Mr Grierson and I am the class teacher for Dumbledore’s Army. Mrs Winder and Miss Showemimo also work in our classroom throughout the week. We are going to be learning about lots of exciting things this half term. Science Fiction will be our primary literary focus this half term, with the children writing their own narrative based on this topic. Our mathematical focus for this half term will be fractions, geometry, statistics and measurements. Dumbledore’s Army are looking forward to having a magical half term together!

Children will have a reading book chosen by themselves appropriate to their reading level. Accompanying these books are their reading diaries, where you can write comments on their reading daily. Your child will also be given many opportunities    throughout the week to read a variety of texts and will then undertake an online quiz to assess their understanding of the text.

Geography - We will explore the impact of increasing populations throughout the world while learning about rural and urban settlements, and development of megacities.

Science - We will delve into the inner workings of outer space by investigating the movement of planets within our Solar System, and understanding the reasoning for day and night.

PSHE - Rights and Respect – Here we will focus on conversations around their health and well-being, the difference between fact and opinion and understanding their rights.

RE – The children will be exploring Christianity with a focus on Jesus and the Easter story.
