Ely Class (Year 5)

Welcome to Ely Class!


Our class is named after Ely Cathedral, a Benedictine cathedral built in Cambridgeshire in 1083. It was built on the site of an Abbey Church which dates back to AD 672.


This year are are going to be learning about a number of different interesting topics, such as the Norman invasion, World War One, The Victorians, the counties and cities of the UK, and Earth and Space, The  Highwayman, Crime and Punishment. We will be going on a number of different visits to inform our learning – House of Illustration, Imperial War Museum, The National Gallery and The Foundling Museum to name but a few. 


We want our classroom to be an environment where we can foster a love of learning, ask questions, explore ideas, make mistakes, develop our creativity and deepen our understanding in every subject that we are learning. You can see some of the activities we have already enjoyed so far this year in the photos below, including art, genre exploration in literacy and some of the different practical maths and science activities we have carried out in class.
