Saturn – Year 5 & 6

Welcome to Saturn Class!

The teacher of Saturn Class is Mrs Muggeridge and our HLTA is Mrs Wright.

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.

Please take a look at the tabs below to find out more about some of the interesting areas of learning we are currently focusing on.

Forest School

Saturn Class have enjoyed their Summer visit to Park Wood today. Also, this was our year 6s last session visiting our beautiful forest.

Forest School helps children to grow in confidence as a result of the freedom, time and space they are given in their learning. This allows them to demonstrate independence at their own pace.

At Forest School, children can run and make a noise, get their hands dirty and experience manageable risk – which is essential for healthy child development, through activities such as den building, supervised fire lighting, whittling sticks, tool work and more!

Please have a look at the pictures below to see Saturn Class in action at Forest School.

Space

Saturn class have enjoyed learning about ‘Space’ this term. In this lesson they focused on the movement and phases of the Moon. They created their own versions using Oreo cookies! Lots of fun and crumbs!
