Summer Term 1

Welcome back to what will undoubtedly be a very busy term for Class 5 as we hit the home stretch on our journey towards SATs. We will be continuing with our topic work on the Victorians and using this to create some wonderful pieces of writing, presentations and art. We will also be starting a topic called Gallery Rebels where we will get to explore different art movements and examine the work of some of the great artists.

PGL - Day 3:

We had an absolutely amazing time on our residential. The children were all incredible and made us really proud. They all tried new things and pushed themselves as much as they could. Below is a slide show of the roughly 600 photos we took over the last three days, enjoy!

PGL - Day 2:

Another brilliant day today. Lots of exciting activities, challenges and achievements. Then everything gets finished off with a water fight. Fun times.

Week 6:

The week we have been preparing for was finally upon us. Class 5 had their SATs and we could not be any prouder of them. Every single person did their very best and came in each day smiling and ready to show just how much they have learn't this year.

As a reward we had a little party on Friday and the children all wen't a little crazy - have a look at the video if you don't believe me.


Well done Class 5, you have all made me very proud.

Week 5:

This week we have completed a new piece of writing for our writing portfolios based around the use of corporal punishment in schools. The children came up with arguments for and against this idea and then presented a balanced view of the argument. At the end they gave their own views - a resounding no!

Week 4:

Along with lots of writing this week we have made a start on our new topic Galley Rebels. We began by discussing different movements, artists and any paintings we knew or particularly liked. We then spent the afternoon sketching some classroom objects to begin our artistic journey. Below are some of the results.

Week 3:

This week we have being working hard preparing for our SATs. Lots of revision of algebra, statistics and reading skills. We did find some time to get on the computers and used the opportunity to improve a piece of work from earlier in the year presenting our Titanic newspaper report using Microfsoft Word. We had to learn how to correctly format the page, insert images and adjust the layout of the page to keep all our work where we wanted it.

Week 2:

We have had Mrs Lane in class today helping to develop our spoken Spanish. We have been learning the names of different classroom items and then putting them into sentences.

Week 1:

We kicked off our first week back by looking back to our work from the very first term. We looked at a newspaper report that we wrote about the Titanic and thought about how we could improve this piece of work with the different skills we have developed this year. Some of the improvements we have made have been amazing and have turned these pieces of writing into something we are really proud of.
