Mr Evens's Class

Term 6 - The final countdown!

Welcome to Year 5's class page. I can't believe that we are near the end! Time flies when we are having fun! However, there are still many challenges and targets that we will need to meet this term but I am sure the children will rise to this and improve in all aspects of school life.

Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs. Bailey, Miss. Welsh and Mrs. Tweehuysen.

Look back here over the next few weeks for important information regarding our class. This includes our summer production, celebration afternoon, playground leaders trip and Youth Speaks competition.

Questions or concerns? I am usually around after school or you can email me on I will endeavour to reply to any emails as soon as it is convenient.

Thank you,

Gavin Evens

Term 5 and 6

Our Topic and Science work over Terms 5 and 6 will be linked to Space, including learning about the Earth, sun and moon and light, as well as how we see things. 

Week one of Term 6 will be STEM week across the school, where we will be looking at the ideas of a greener future. As part of this, each Year 5 pupil will need one empty plastic fizzy pop bottle; you don't need to bring this in just yet but do make sure you save one between now and then.

Our themes for class Collective Worship are Friendship for Term 5 and Courage for Term 6. We have been really enjoying the assemblies that the children have put together to share with their classmates and will be looking for volunteers to share these with the younger children in the school too.

And finally, our performance for the end of the year will be Aladdin! We will be supporting the Year 6 children by performing as part of the choir. Lots of practising and performing will be taking place and it is an expectation to be available for the two performance nights on Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th July. This would be an fantastic opportunity for the children to be involved in a very important event! The words for the songs are available to download at the bottom of the Class Page.
