Welcome to class 5VD's page with Miss Gadsby and Mr Edney.
Follow our journey through year 5 to see us take part in our fantastic learning!
In term 5 & 6 we have been learning about inspirational people.
In term 5 we are learning about:
- Martin Luther King
The children loved learning about his movement and all he stood for. They were particularly moved by his want for equality and his campaign for human rights.
- Marcus Rashford
We enjoyed learning about a modern day inspirational person, someone we all know and someone who helped children recently. Throughout the Covid pandemic, Marcus Rashford successfully campaigned for free school meals for children, whilst at home in lockdown.
- Greta Thunberg
We learned about Greta, an inspirational person who wants to see environmental change to help save our planet starting at just 15 years old, when at school. The children were shocked to learn that Greta has stood in front of hundreds of leaders to share her views and opinions.
- Tom Holland
The children voted for Tom Holland as an inspirational person, they were challenged to find out what makes him inspirational and teach us why he inspires them. Did you know he was bullied for dancing, and still went on to play Billy Elliot on The West End?
- The Queen
Celebrating 70 years reigning our country, we learned how The Queen was involved in WW2, how she has seen and guided us through the changes in technology and society and more recently living through the Covid Pandemic.
In 5VD this term we have been having been learning how to play the Ukulele. See us in action below.
