learning, living, loving and laughing

Welcome to Saturn Class!

(Years 5 and 6)

The teachers of Saturn Class are Miss Lewis and Mrs Muggeridge and our classroom assistant is Mrs Laidlaw.

Lessons taught in years five and six follow the 2014 National Curriculum. The children learn through a topic based creative curriculum which enables them to make sense of their learning. It is also important that children in years five and six start to take on responsibility for their own learning. They are encouraged to do this with many problem solving tasks and independent research.

Our main topics this year are:

Autumn Term: WWII

Spring Term: Space

Summer Term: The Culture of China

This term's Learning Overview

The Culture of China

 

Things to remember to bring to school each day:

Monday - Signed Spelling book

Wednesday - Outdoor Learning /Forest School clothes, (long sleeves and trousers essential) PE kit & homework

Friday - PE kit

Outdoor Learning & Forest School

In Saturn we take our learning outdoors every Wednesday morning. We learn through practical activities and real experiences, allowing the seasons to dictate what we do. It is a time that we all look forward to!

Bikeability Training 2017

Well done to the children in Saturn Class who have taken part in Bikeability training. Delivered by Safer Essex Roads, the training is given in a practical and professional way to ensure that our children become safer and more confident cyclists.

Duxford IWM

Saturn class visited the Imperial War Museum in Duxford to learn more about our WWII topic and the links to our local area. We visited many hangers within the museum that told us the stories of many battles and also people's lives connected to the war. During lunch, a plane even did the loop-the-loop overhead!
