Miss Fitzpatrick's Class 2019/20

Welcome to Class 5

The Sky’s the Limit!

It’s all about flying in Class 5 in the second half of autumn term!


Class Novel: FArTHER by Grahame Barker-Smith and Carrie’s War by Nina Bawden

Our class novel is FArTHER by Grahame Barker-Smith, which explores the themes of dreams and aspirations; grief and loss. Class 5 will be exploring the history of flying, including crazy ideas behind flying machines; the drawings of Leonardo da Vinci and the first attempts at flying by the Wright brothers.

 Our Science theme is Forces.

 Let’s Go Fly a Kite! In Design Technology, we will be designing and making kites.

We are learning about World Wars in our History topic, and will be looking at the importance of this year as we mark the centenary of the end of the First World War. On Sunday 11th November, people around the Commonwealth will be reflecting on the lives that were irrevocably changed, and those that were lost.
