COVID-19 SERVICE STATUS: ALL CLASSES OPEN TO PUPILS

Miss May

Term 6

This term we have been looking at the continent of Africa. We have been reading the text ‘The Fastest Boy in the World’ and have made some comparisons between Ethiopia and the UK. As a class, we looked at the artefacts Miss May bought in from when she taught in The Gambia. We explored each object in our groups and discussed what it was and what it might be used for. We made predictions based on what we already know about Africa and used our prior knowledge to support us. We were most surprised by the toothbrush as we couldn’t believe really poor people would chew on some wood to clean their teeth!

Term 5

In Year 5 this term, we have completed some incredible pieces of work.

 

In Art, we have been looking at the shapes and images of Ancient Greek vases. We have then thought about how they show the lives that were led back then. We then created a design for our own vases based on life now. After designing our own vase, we then thought created a collage using a range of materials.Take a look at some of the lovely pieces of art work below.

 

In Maths, we have been continuing our fractions work from lockdown learning. We have been doing a fantastic job and have been working hard to challenge ourselves. Here are some of the outcomes.

 

During our English lessons we have looked at the text ‘Who Let the God’s Out” While working with this text we have completed a range of genres of writing. One of our favourites was our setting description of the cave, where we had a focus on figurative language. Can you spot the SHAMPOO features in our writing?

Term 4

As part of science, we have been looking at the life-cycles of living things. We saw the lifecycle of birds first-hand when we received some chicks for two weeks. They arrived as eggs and we kept them in an incubator where there hatched. We then were able to hold them and write reports about how they have developed over time.

Another Term has flown by and in 5CM we have continued to work incredibly hard both at home and in school. This term, in art we have been looking at still life. We have used a range of mediums and imitated a range of artists to create our own still life images. Take a look at some of the gorgeous paintings we have created so far!

Since our return at school we have been listening to and appraising Motown music – we have really enjoyed listening to a range of artists! We have been practising and learning a song from this genre and have had lots of fun learning it. We are beginning to sing without the backing music, take a look at our rendition of “Dancing in the Street.”

 

 

 

Term 3

5CM have been learning all about living things and their habitats. We have learned about what characteristics all living things must have; we then looked closely at a range of different objects to investigate. Children at home looked carefully at germs and created posters on how to stop the spread of germs. Similarly, the children in school completed a yeast experiment to see if yeast was a living organism. Take a look at a range of science activities we have completed this term!

Term 2

This term, in Art, we are creating clay dragon eyes. So far we have been practising different drawing techniques and using these to sketch pictures and patterns that we can see in pictures. Take a look at some of our fabulous work so far.

As you saw from our previous Art work, we designed dragon eyes by using different shading techniques to add depth and texture. In the final week of Term 2, we have been practising our use of clay techniques. We moulded our shapes carefully and once we were happy with our clay, we painted them to make them really stand out - We hope you like them!

 

This term, we have been focussing on adding description to our writing - we have used dictionaries and thesauruses to improve vocabulary. This week we used a clip from ‘The Lord of the Rings’ to add suspense before the battle. We are really proud of the work that we have done. 

Term 1

In science, we have been studying the properties of materials. We have been conducting an experiment for Mr Mason’s staycation to the Lake District and thinking about which material he should have for his coat. Here are some pictures of us experimenting different materials to see which is the most permeable, flexible and best for temperature change.

We are lucky to currently have Future Stars taking us for PE throughout Thursday afternoons. This term we are working on our balance in the gym while practising our dribbling and passing skills in basketball. It’s been great fun!
