Class 5

Planning

In this section you will find what Class 5 will be learning each half term. Please feel free to click below to see the exciting things planned.

Photographs

Bikeability

Bikeability is a cycle training programme.  It's about gaining practical skills and understanding how to cycle on today's roads.  It gives everyone the skills and confidence for all kinds of cycling.  We have loved learning bow to be safe on our bikes.

Geography- Satellite Images

Maths- Place Value (decimals)

We have been looking at place value in decimals during our maths lesson.  We have been using counters to help us manipulate and partition numbers.  

Science- Making Mould- Results

The results are in from our Making Mould experiment!  We know that micro-organisms need warmth, air and moisture to reproduce.  Make sure your food is stored in the right conditions.

We have been getting creative with paper.  There has been lots of folding, cutting, sticking and fun.  From everyone in Class 5 we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

French- Christmas Jumpers

We enjoyed designing our own French Christmas Jumpers.  We wrote about what we had designed in French.

We have been looking at colour in art. Using famous paintings as inspiration, we created our own pieces.

Science- Making Mould

We have been learning about micro-organisms in science.  We can't wait to see the results of our experiment! 

We had a wonderful afternoon learning about lots of different animals. We got to hold and touch a leopard gecko, tarantula, chinchilla, corn snake and barn owl. 

English- Tyger, Tyger Poetry

Tyger, Tyger 

We have been reading the William Blake poem Tyger, Tyger to inspire our own poems about tigers. As you can see, we really enjoyed it. 

Art- Colour Theory

Colour Theory! We had a great time using watercolour to explore the colour wheel. We learnt about warm and cool colours along with complementary, analogous and tertiary colours. 

Maths- Fractions

We have been looking at fractions during our maths lessons.

ICT- Endangered Animals

We each researched an endangered animal of our choice. We then used our ICT skills to present this with borders, titles, pictures, tables and more. 

Children In Need- Spotty Day!

This year, for Children In Need, we got spotty! We had great fun joining Joe Wicks for some spotty, sports quizzes.

Odd Sock Day

Odd Sock Day marks the start of Anti-Bullying week (15th -19th November).  It is an opportunity for us to express ourselves and celebrate our individuality- what makes us unique! 

During our PE lessons with Mr Green, we have been learning rugby.  As you can see we have had lots of fun!

English- Can We Save The Tiger?

Our new class book, Can We Save The Tiger, had us asking lots of questions about tigers. We enjoyed finding out the answers and presenting our learning in a creative way. Did you know that tigers can measure up to 3.5 metres long and are the biggest cats in the world!?

PE-Kurling Kids

We have had so much fun learning new age curling with Kurling Kids. We learnt about the hammer, button, house and nudging. Learning new sports is so much fun.

Wear It Pink!

Wear it pink! For a cause close to our hearts, we are all wearing pink to raise money for Breast Cancer Now.

We have been exploring pressures that we can feel.  One of the biggest pressures we experience comes from ourselves.  We looked at how 'Self-talk' impacts our well-being, friendships and relationships with others.

Black History Month

During Black History Month, we have been using our class book, Goodnight Stories For Rebel Girls, to learn about influential black women who inspire us. We then wrote biographies about them. 

St Chad's- PE- Climbing

St Chad's- Science

St Chad's invited Year 6 to their school for some taster afternoons. We have had so much fun in Science getting out of the Escape Room, soaring to new heights on their climbing wall in PE and composing our own anthems in Music.

French- Numbers to 50

We had such fun getting outside for some active French learning. We played bingo to help us learn to learn the numbers to 50. 

PSHE- Pressure

"Pressure is a feeling that someone is pushing you toward a certain choice, good or bad."

 

There are different types of pressure we may come across in our lives: spoken and unspoken.  We looked at the different types of pressure in PSHE using drama to act out scenarios we may meet.

We have been experimenting with light. We know that light travels in straight lines from light sources to our eye or to the object and then our eyes.  We experimented with mirrors to see around corners.

We love to dance. During dance this week we learnt lots of stretches and used a range of movement patterns such as 'step, ball, change' and 'step and clap'. We then put them together in a new dance. It was great fun.

Maths- Loop Game

During our maths lesson we played a loop game to practice reading and ordering numbers up to 7 digits.

Welcome Back

Welcome back Class 5 to an exciting year ahead of us. We missed you all so much and are so glad to have everyone back! This year we will all work hard to achieve the best we can. 2021/22 will be a busy year for us all, especially Year 6.  Being prepared with homework and equipment is essential in order to ensure we all do our best. 

 

Homework will be set on a daily basis and returned the following day. It should only take around 30 minutes to complete but it is essential that it is completed and returned on time as it will often be needed for the next lesson. If homework is not completed and returned, children will be required to miss their playtime in order to catch up. In Class 5 it is the responsibility of the child to remember their homework, not their parents or guardians. Children should also be reading on a daily basis and recording this in their reading journals. Reading journals will be checked daily and children should record what they have read each night.  Spellings will be given on Tuesdays and will be tested on the following Monday. By Year 5 and 6, children are expected to know all of their times tables up to 12x12. This is essential to support their learning in maths. Please support and encourage your child to take responsibility for this in addition to other homework. 

 

P.E kits should be worn on Thursdays and Fridays for our PE lessons.  Making Class 5 take responsibility for their organisation is important in order to help the children with their transition to secondary school. 

 

We look forward to this year with you all,

 

Miss Millward and Mrs Potts
