We love books! As you can see we had a great day dressing up as our favorite book characters. Reading is really important and we all enjoy losing ourselves in a good book.
"I do believe that something very magical can happen when you read a good book." JK Rowling
We have been learning a new sport during our PE lessons; Judo. We have been focusing on respect (respecting each other, the instructor and the equipment) as well as learning the skills needed. We have really enjoyed learning this sport and as you can see it is a firm favourite.
We had a fantastic time at Chester Zoo. We enjoyed looking at all of the different habitats and learning about animals from different countries. We were able to see almost all of the animals in the huge zoo and our favourite was most definitely the tiger.
We have been exploring circuits during our science lessons. We can now draw, label and make circuits. We looked at making our circuits complete and discussed the voltage of the bulbs, batteries and buzzers.
We have been looking at Japanese art especially Shibori art. We had great fun manipulating the fabric.There are many different techniques for Shibori art. We have used Kanoko Shibori (where the fabric is tied together with bands) and Itajime Shibori (sandwiching pieces of wood between the cloth to stop the dye.)
Cookery (Greek kebabs)
In Year 5 and 6 we have been making Greek kebabs. We have been learning and applying the principles of a healthy and varied diet by looking at different vegetables and dairy for our kebabs. We used the oven to cook them and they were delicious!
Music Lessons- Glockenspiel
We have been learning to play the glockenspiel. To do this, we have had to learn where each of the notes are and remember the note order to play the song. We are enjoying starting to read music too. Can you name the songs?
Every Friday we join together as a class to worship. We each take turns to lead and plan this. During Collective Worship, we reflect on Jesus' teachings, pray together, and read scripture or parables. We octen pray for those in need or who are less fortunate than us.
"For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another."
'Wear It Pink' Day
Giving to charity is very important in St Edward's. We regularly come together as a school to help out those in need or who are less fortunate than us. Tickled Pink is a charity close to our hearts and, as you can see, we really enjoyed dressing up in pink to bring awareness to this cause.
"Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to." Deuteronomy 15:10
The Kingdom of God
During our drama lessons we have been recreating the Parables of The Mustard Seed, The Lost Sheep, The Prodigal Son and The Lost Drachma. These Parables all show how, no matter what you do, you are always welcome to be a part of The Kingdom of God. We also acted out the Values of The Kingdom. We thought about how we can live these values in everything we do and everything we say.
"But seek first The Kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." Matthew 6:33
The Kingdom of God- The Lost Sheep
The Kingdom of God- The Prodigal Son
The Kingdom of God- The Mustard Seed
The Kingdom of God- The Lost Coin
The Kingdom of God- The Value of Peace
The Kingdom of God- The Value of Courage
Other faiths week- Islam
We have been learning about other faiths. We had a lovely visitor who came to teach us all about Islam. His name was Imran and he is a Muslim. We were able to ask lots of questions and learnt so much.
Our Finished Greek Temples
Designing Greek Temples
We planned and designed our Greek Temples using topic books to make them as accurate as possible. We paid careful attention to the roof and columns to be historically accurate.
We have been learning some new skills during our P.E lessons this term. Table tennis develops hand/eye coordination, concentration and mental alertness as well as being lots of fun.
"For I can do anything through Christ, who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13
Fun With Numbers
We love maths in Year 5 and 6. We especially enjoy playing games with numbers and learning about place value of numbers up to 1 million.
This Is Us
"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them" Genesis 1:27
I can't imagine life without...
God has given us a wonderful world and filled it with so many amazing things. We have made mind maps of all the wonderful gifts we have been given and all the things we couldn't imagine life without.
We are buddies!
We are a school family working together. Each year we buddy up with the new children in Reception to help them settle in and make friends. We show them games to play, sharing and communication.
"And he called a child to Himself and set him before them, and said, "Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will enter the kingdom of heaven. "Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 18:2-6
Ancient Greek Vases
Our topic this term is Ancient Greece. We have been looking at art and designs on Ancient Greek vases and replicating them in our sketch books.
Welcome back Year 5 and 6.
Welcome back Year 5/6 to an exciting year ahead of us. We will all work hard to achieve the best we can. 2019/20 will be a busy year for us all, especially Year 6 who will have their SATS in May. 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. At Year 5 and 6 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 and practicing their spellings. By Year 5 and 6, children are expected to know all of their times tables upto 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 remain in school Monday to Friday and be taken home at weekends for washing. Children must have their kits in school in order to take part in P.E and again this is the responsibility of the child. Making Year 5/6 take responsibility for their organisation is important in order to help the children with their transition to secondary school.
