Year 5

Year 5 is now upon us and we are in the top juniors. We recently took part in a fun run. Although fun, we were all really exhausted!

We learnt about Shakespeare and took part in the Shakespeare School Festival in November. 

   

We also traveled, on a foggy November day, to the Space Centre in Leicester. It was an amazing day out and it gave us an opportunity to explore Space in more detail.

Look below at some of the things that we did in year 4

In geography we have been focusing on Europe. We have studied atlases to find physical and human features of geography in the British Isles. We have looked at the importance of the river Thames in London and after half term we will be learning about physical and human features of geography in Italy.

In our States of Matter topic in science we investigated materials that changed state when heated and cooled. Our favourite material that changed state when heated was chocolate.

 

We had an amazing day out to the Roman Verulamium in St Albums.

We explored the museum where we saw beautiful mosaics, old coins and various items that people would have kept in their homes. We also handled Roman artefacts in a workshop, we looked at items that Roman people would have used to clean with, eat with and build with.

Some of us were able to dress up as Romans which was very good fun.

In art we looked at landscapes and the art movement of surrealism. In particular we focused on the work of Salvador Dali. We took the inspiration of his ‘melting clocks’ and transfered that to our own art work.

‘Flotsam’ by David Wiesner was the launchpad for some of our English work this term. Whilst investigating a golden, sandy beach, a curious young boy discovers a mysterious and unique camera. Having been given this unique book, for the first time ever, the incredible images are accompanied by the classes narrative and dialogue.

We acted out stories and had lots of fun in our maths lessons.

We visited the British Museum in London to see the Egyptian display. We have an amazing day and learnt lots of new things. The coach trip took a long time but it was worth it.

Our class is like a jigsaw puzzle. When we are altogether,
the puzzle is complete. When just one of us is missing, the
puzzle is incomplete.
We always work together to do our best and we always
work best when we are together.

 

 

When we were in year 2 we enjoyed our science and maths lessons and had fun baking. The cakes we baked tasted really good.

In Year 1 in 2011 / 2012 we had lots of fun too. Take a look at some of the things they did. We have really grown but it’s nice to look back at the good things we have done.

Year 1 had an exciting afternoon making bubbles. Here are some photos for you to look at.

During book week Winnie the Witch visited school to talk to the Year 1 class.

One of our recent topics was materials. The children gained much from the practical activities including making houses for the 3 pigs.
