CLASS LETTERS - 5G - 2021 - 2022
Welcome to year 5!
We are so happy to have all of the Year 5 children back in school. They have already settled in so well to the new year and the new term. We are continuing to be cautious with our routines and the children are being brilliant at getting stuck in! They are working hard and are setting a fantastic example around the school. They have adapted so well to the new way of working and are being sensible and safe at school.
We are really excited to get on with a great year with so much to look forward to. Topics will include: forests, space, Ancient Greece, Shakespeare, Christianity, Wild thing art sculptures, night light DT projects, digital music, coding and so much more. We will continue to keep you up to date and for the most recent information please check your child's Microsoft Teams page where we post homework and information about what has been going on in school.
Food Technology trip to Green's Windmill
We have had an excellent day at the windmill. We learned all about where our food comes from and how flour is made. We made our own bread, toured the windmill and visited the science centre. It was a great trip out and we have some budding bakers in 5G!
As an associate RSC school we have been really luck to have a wide range of artists visit us in school to run workshops all arounf A Midsummer Night's Dream. We have written our own song, made matchbox spell books and taken part in amazing drama workshops. Take a look below at what we have been up to!
World Book Day 2022
Thank you for all of your effort in making amazing costumes this year, we had an excellent day full of lots of fun activities. In the morning we learnt all about Quentin Blake and how he illustrates a whole range of books. We made our own scary characters in his style and then wrote poems including portmanteau about our creations! It was so good to have a full class of children to enjoy this with. We also had our first whole school assembly and then spent the afternoon practising for our upcoming performance!
School of Rock The Musical
We had the pleasure of getting out of school and to the theatre to watch School of Rock The Musical. Thanks to our partnership with the RSC (Royal Shakespeare Company) we were given these tickets for free and had amazing seats. We all had a great time and the whole year were on their feet for the final song! #stickittotheman
Sustainability week 2021!
This year we looked into how we can live more sustainably as a class and thought about all the plastic we have laying around. We researched ideas, wrote instructions and then created new products out of old recycling. Have a look at the pictures below.
We also found out about Eunice Newton Foot who was a female scientist and discovered the harm greenhouse gasses can cause to our planet, she found this out in the 1800's but people didn't take her seriously as she was a woman! We learned all about her and used drama to re-tell her story.
Design and Technology
In Design and Technology, we have been set the task of creating a night light for Miss Bell's son Mylo. We have started the design process and figured out the electric circuits that we will need to power our devices.
Sherwood Forest Trip
We had an excellent time at Sherwood Forest, we spent the morning orienteering where the children had to find their way around a section of the woods all on their own! We then made dens in the afternoon which were tested with Mrs Cousins throwing water on to see if they were waterproof, luckily nearly all of them were! It was a great first trip and we look forward to many more!
Where the wild things are mod-roc models
We have been busy designing our own 'Wild Things' and putting them out in their natural environment, see some of the amazing models below.
Forests in the UK
During our Geography topic we researched different forests around the UK, the children made posters displaying all of the information that they discovered.
