– The Red Eye
– Where we once stood
– Biography of Neil Armstrong
– Pharaoh’s Fate

Welcome to Class 5W – where the W stands for wacky and wonderful! Step into our classroom and you will find a wonderful group of enthusiastic, respectful and hard-working children who will always provide you with a warm welcome.  Our lessons are always full of challenges that we strive to overcome through a positive attitude, teamwork and lots of laughs.  Our class teacher is Mrs Whitmore and our teaching assistant is Mrs Monaghan, who has had the pleasure of working with us for a few years now.  They – along with Mr Brown and Mrs Simpson next door in 5B – provide us with great support and a lot of fun.   

As we move higher in the academy, we have greater responsibility and are determined to show our MASTER values in everything we do; we have high expectations and goals and are dedicated to setting a great example of being an Eaton Park person to fellow pupils, staff and visitors. 

We have some brilliant themes to explore this year across the curriculum.  Starting the year exploring the globe through map-work in Geography, we will then broaden our knowledge about major nations, cities and landmarks along with discussing key issues regarding climate change and the impact of deforestation in the Amazon rainforest.  In science, we begin by building our knowledge of animals and their habitats before embarking on a trip around the Solar System, with a particular focus upon Earth and Mars – our Mars non-chronological reports will be well worth a read!  In history, we are travelling way back in time to the age of the Aztecs, exploring their empire through primary and secondary sources and the importance of the pyramids that we still see today. Later in the spring term, we will then come face-to-face with Henry VIII during the brutal Tudor era before moving on to learning about the Great Plague in summer. 

Throw in developing our sporting and computing skills, exploring artistic techniques and world religions as well as keeping up-to-date with current affairs and we will never miss an opportunity to learn. 

Over the course of this year, we will encounter many interesting and fun-filled activities to develop our understanding across the curriculum.  Our English sessions begin with The Red Eye before looking at the incredible ‘The Invention of Hugo Cabret’ by Brian Selznick – a book that always leaves children desperate to explore more and more of.  This is just one of the many interesting texts we will uncover this year, from The War of the Worlds through to The Firebird and Kensuke’s Kingdom. 

We also have the fantastic Bug Club reading programme, which children are encouraged to read on at least once a week at home alongside their reading book; children are required to read at least three times a week, with a challenge set for five times.  For those that achieve five times a week every week, there is the opportunity to enter the ‘Bookworm’ to win some amazing prizes.
