Autumn Term

Welcome to Class 5S and 5B!


Here are our Autumn 1 newsletters which gives you an insight into what we are learning about

Shackleton's Journey

We are exploring the Antarctic with Ernest Shackleton and his courageous crew. Their voyage challenged the men to their limits but, luckily, we are studying various aspects of the journey from the safety of our warm classrooms.

We have written CVs to persuade Ernest to take us along with him, diary extracts from various members of the crew and tried to put ourselves in their (snow) shoes. Through artwork, we will design 3D landscapes to combine with poetry and patterns.

Hopefully, we will finish the adventure admiring their perserverance and persistance to achieve their goals.


Forest School

Forest school sessions are on Wednesdays for 5B and Tuesdays for 5S.

Pupils should bring appropriate footwear and clothing to be outdoors during these sessions.

Useful Sites


5B will continue swimming lessons on Tuesdays until Christmas (with 5S starting their sessions in the New Year).


Our Topic

Our main topic is focusing on the local area: we will be looking at changes over time and how things are being developed that will take Mytholmroyd into the future.

Learning will take place through walks, map-work, sketches and old photographs.

All children have had a hands-on start to our new Science topic- Changing Materials- as they have delved into dissolving investigations and separting solutions scientifically.

Do all materials act the same when heated or cooled?

Can we change materilas back to their original form when they've changed?

These and many more scientific questions will be investigated over the half-term.
