Miss Dallard- Teacher
Miss Budworth – Teaching assistant
This term we will be looking at all things Ancient Greece. We will be learning about where they appear on the historical timeline, what their legacy was and how they lived their lives compared to ours and other famous time periods in History.
When we got back after Easter there was a mysterious box in our classroom………..Did we open it? Did we open it?………………………..of course we did!
Class 5 are SO pleased to be back in school and have settled back in really well. We are using the rest of this term to ensure that we really understand some trickier bits of our Spring learning before moving on to our new topics after Easter. In R.E we have been learning all about the faith of Hinduism – check back for some exciting pictures from our Holi afternoon celebrations.
As part of Science Week – each class looked at a different famous female scientist. We used books, videos and the internet to find about Marie Curie. We made interactive presentations to show our findings.
On our first day back we all took part in a treasure hunt around the school. We had parts of pictures and had to locate where they were from. Here were some examples;
- Google Classroom daily activities (Log in to find set tasks).
- Spelling Shed
Our highlight of the term has to be the response to our version of the John Lewis advert. It has been viewed almost 10,000 times and we even received some goodies and a letter from the Chairperson of Waitrose – Sharon White.
Not only did the children develop their acting and computing skills – it also helped us with our PSHE work – reflecting on our behaviours and ways we show Love around the school.
Continuing with our dragon topic – we have been writing some setting descriptions.
This was the winged creature’s favourite time to fly.
As the sapphire sun set gleamed, it started to dip under the pillow like clouds and allow the midnight sky to rise. The elegant sky looked dazzling as wisps of fluff floated around and started to part in front of them. They flexed their brilliant wings. Their wings were trees. The sun was embracing what little warmth it had. The beats bodies glistened like crimson in the astonishing light.
As they reached full speed, leaving the earth beneath them, they grinned as they thought about what they were going to do there. There would be others like them there. For them, it would be paradise….
We kicked off the year and our topic with a FANTASTIC Viking Workshop. We played lots of games, did some drama but most importantly learned so much information about the Vikings and their culture.
We have also made Viking Longships, Brooches and Necklaces using Viking Runes to spell our names.
