The teacher in our class is Mrs Thomas. Mr Flynn (PE lead), Mrs Wheatley and Mrs Mackown are also supporting in the classroom at different times throughout the day.
We use both Class Dojo and Twitter to communicate with parents.
This term we are looking at Natural Disasters and how they effect the world around us. In geography, we are exploring various places around the world which are prone to these disasters and explaining why this might be.
This half term we are learning about animals including humans in science and after the October half term will be looking at Space. In art, we will be analysing the work of Peter Thorpe and then creating our own rocket paintings, linking to our science learning.
In music we will be creating our own ostinatos on the run up to Christmas. In computing, coding a maze game linking to natural disasters. We have a weekly French sessions with Mrs Wheatley.
Year 5 have had a fantastic term...
They have learnt a lot about different natural disasters and how to stay safe if one happens. They have had fun making model bridges that would withhold and Earthquake and art inspired by the artist Peter Thorpe (these will all be on display and the end of year festival).
The highlight for most children was taking over Lincoln castle, Cathedral and Collection for the day. Running the shops, being tours guides and much, much more. You can see from the photos just a snippet of the day.
I hope all the children rest up as much as possible over the holidays as we have lots more learning to come in the new year: with our project focus being the Egyptians.
