Year 5

Teacher: Mrs Hannick
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Carson
In Year 5, we are becoming aware of our own strengths and interests and areas of development. Mrs Hannick encourages us to ‘give it a go’ even if we don’t succeed. This will help us to become more confident learners and not fear failure. As long as we have tried our best, the ethos of the class is that we will get there in the end.

In our class, we are encouraged to be independent and creative in our learning and to think for ourselves and not to always rely on others.

To find out more about our class and what activities we have been undertaking on a daily basis, then please take a look at the details below. This page will be regularly updated with new material, so please keep checking back for new information.

Ragged School Museum

Year 5 went on a trip to the The Ragged School Museum.

What is the Ragged School Museum?

Well it is a museum in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. The museum was opened in 1990 in the premises of the former Dr Barnardo's Copperfield Road Ragged School. It is a museum based around the Victorian times, which was perfect for Year 5 as they have been busy learning all about the Victorians.

They took part in a Victorian lesson, with ‘Miss Perkins’ played by an actor, in a recreated Victorian Classroom. Year 5 experienced what school was like for poor Victorian children and they were shocked at how strict Miss Perkins could be.

Then it was off to the Victorian East End Kitchen, a recreated kitchen belonging to an East End family in about 1900. This session, had our pupils role playing domestic life of poor Victorians. They were busy clothes washing in a tin bath and ironing with flat irons, it was an opportunity to handle objects more than one hundred years old. They soon realised that there were no washing machines or other luxury items in the Victorian Times.

I bet they were all glad to get back to the 21st century!
