Class 5

March 2021.

 

A huge well done to everybody in Class 5! 

You have all been superstars coming back to school and settling down to your learning as if you have never been away. I am so very proud of you all.

 

Since you have come back at the start of March we have been so busy, learning about the Stone Age. We found out that the Stone Age people moved around following the herds until they began to settle in one place. They used flint to make spears and bows and arrows to hunt the animals. They used animals skins to keep warm and created fire to help cook the food and keep aware predators. 

We read Stone Age Boy in English and wrote our own newspaper report on the adventures of Om and the boy. 

 

In Science we found out how rocks are formed and that there are three main types of rocks, metamorphic, sedimentary and igneous. We recreated these in class using playdough, chocolate and sand. 

 

Our learning didn't stop there! We have concentrated on time and capacity in Maths, Learnt about Christianity in RE, created a Stone Age dance to music in PE, made Stone Age necklaces in DT and mixed colours and created a cave painting in Art.

 

WOW CLASS 5 what an amazing half term.

Next term will be just as exciting and busy!

 

Check out this page next week to find out what we will be learning about...

 

Enjoy the Easter break.smiley

A note for class 5

 

A huge thank you to everybody who worked so hard during this half term. I know it hasn't been easy learning remotely from home. 

 

Thank you to all the children and their parents who used the technology and did their work and sent it in. I enjoyed teaching the live lessons in maths where we learnt about multiplication, division and fractions. 

In English we worked on writing our own versions of Jack and the Beanstalk and also wrote text for the illustrated book Journey by Aaron Becker. 

We didn't forget other subjects we learnt about communities in PHSE, plants in Science and Christianity in RE. 

 

We have had a busy half term and despite lockdown, changing our routines, working with our families, or even working in school with few friends, we have all pulled together and continued our learning. 

I am hoping that we will all be together in school before the Easter holidays. 

 

Next term our focus will be the Stone Age... 

 

See you then

Miss Wainwright

WATERBOTTLES ~ due to Covid-19 each child should now have a water bottle in school with them this can be filled when emptied, it should be taken home and washed each night.

AUTUMN TERM'S LEARNING.

 

This term we will be learning about Lincoln, the U.K and Western Europe.

We will be learning about where in Europe Great Britain is, and looking at the land use in Britain and Lincolnshire. 

 

In Science we will be focussing our learning on animals, skeletons and what the animals need to eat to survive. We will learn about the different diets animals have and why they need balanced diets. 

 

French will focus on the basic language skills and saying hello and good bye in French as well as saying "my name is...." in French.

 

We will be creative in art and music by learning about the beat in a piece of music and will be using different pencils to help us shade pictures.
