This is Year 5's page. Here you will find out more about what we have been doing in class.
Class teacher: Miss H Hindle (Welbeing and History)
T.A.: Mrs B Sayer
This term we have been busy with our topic A KINGDOM UNITED. We kicked off by talking about democracy and had our very own class votes. After some fantastic speeches our class representatives for the student council and eco council were chosen (see photos below).
We have studied World War 2 in history. The children have really enjoyed learning about what life was life in Britain before, during and after the war.
European day was this half term. Year 5 studied the Netherlands. We found it on maps, learnt some basic phrases in Dutch and also studied the work of Van Gogh, recreating some of his famous work. (See photos). We tied in our topic here and looked at the life of Anne Frank. We wrote diary entries in the style of Anne's letters to Kitty.
In Science we are looking at Materials. We started by making some fried eggs. We observed the changes in state, taste, smell, texture etc. The classroom smelt of egg all afternoon. :) We will be looking at Materials all term so keep your eyes peeled for when we turn milk into plastic!
English has been fantastic this half term. We have looked at legends, based on Robin Hood and we are now looking at the Jabberwocky. We have turned the poem into a narrative and have created out own creature to link the two together and write a legend about.
