Hello and welcome to Year 5 at St. John’s Mosley Common.
A typical morning in Nightingales starts with assembly or in-class worship followed by a Mathematics lesson. After play time the children have a spelling or handwriting lesson (this alternates), an English lesson and a Guided Reading session. Guided Reading aims to ensure children are reading for meaning and developing higher level reading skills, such as inference.
Afternoons in Nightingales consist of Science, History/Geography, Religious Education, Computing, Physical Education and French lessons. The children have two P.E. lessons a week, one with the class teacher and one with a P.E. specialist. A specialist modern foreign language teacher teaches the children French. Art, Design and Technology and Music lessons are incorporated into other subjects through cross-curricular links. We also enjoy a whole-class reading book three times a week, exploring quality literature and encouraging a love of reading.
Year 5 offers the children a wide variety of learning experiences, from sampling a Mayan feast to designing and making a Viking long boat, there’s never a dull moment!
