A very warm welcome to parents and pupils in our 2017-2018 year 5 class from both Mrs Field and Mrs Hunt! We have already been busy getting to know each other and learning how life in the upper juniors works. We have an exciting term ahead of us, with lots of learning to do and we will be beginning to think about our annual residential at Kilve Court.

What Makes Scotland Scottish? 
 
We will be using the continuing debate about Scottish Independence and the recent referendum to think about our own identities and what it means to belong to a community, whether it's a really big one like the United Kingdom, or a small one like year 5! We will think about how belonging brings rights but also responsibilities. Through this topic, we will learn about the development of democracy and how our parliamentary system works. We will also be learning about Scotland's history and geography and dipping into some of its more colourful characters , like Robert the Bruce, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Macbeth! 
 
We have very much enjoyed meeting our buddies as you can see!
