Year 5 2021 - 2022
Year 5 Teacher
Welcome to a new academic year!
I would like to welcome Year 5 to this new school year. It is a very exciting one because as a school we are seeking to return to 'normal' after an unusual couple of years.
Throughout our various themes, I believe that the children will be inspired to delve deeper into challenging subjects, develop essential key skills and thrive in a safe environment.
The themes we will cover this term will provide the children with opportunities to produce outstanding writing, debate viewpoints, form opinions and understand more about their own beliefs and feelings. Below is just a snapshot of the learning that will take place.

Why is our local history important?
What impact did the slave trade have on Liverpool docks?
These are rather thought-provoking questions that will require the children to give them careful consideration and attention. When I refer to 'local history', I have chosen a part of the North West, Liverpool, that has a significant impact on the surrounding area. With various rivers and canals connecting Merseyside with Cheshire, it is important that we explore the economic and trade value of such a city. After all, it is only 24 miles away (less than a marathon!) from Little Leigh Primary School.
Our theme for the next few weeks will enhance the children's learning experience and provide them with an avenue to explore the questions above. I hope that the children's curiosity will drive their ideas, work ethic and key skills development.
Through various texts, maps and historical artefacts, we will consider how Liverpool docks has changed over the course of the last few centuries. The slave trade played a huge significance in the history of the docks and arguably was the backbone of Liverpool’s wealth. Therefore, one of our key texts this term will be:
