5T1

Welcome to term 6 from Miss Morgan and Mr Bellas. It’s the final push towards Year 6, so we have to keep going and keep working hard to improve your levels! You can do it!

 

Firstly we have our trip on 10th June to the countryside day at the Harrogate showground. There will be plenty of activities for us to do and lots of walking in between. Me and Mr Bellas are looking forward to it. 

 

In our topic this term we are looking at the two countries of Australia and New Zealand. They are two very different countries at the other side of the world with some amazing places to visit and learn all about. We will also be looking at art from each country, plus learning a dance to show at the carnival on the 14th July. That should definitely be fun! 

 

In science this term we are going to do different fair tests so you can further improve your investigation skills. 

 

PE will continue to be on a Monday with Miss Moores, so it’s very important to bring your PE kit. This is an easy way to get a house point!

 

We will continue to read ‘The Abominables’ by Eva Ibbotson as our class book. I am sure that you will be amazed at what those yetis get up to on their way to Farley Towers! (Plus what happens when they arrive!)

 

Lastly, a reminder to keep learning your times tables so that you can increase your score and progress through the times tables awards. Remember, you are going for gold! Once you have reached gold you can then go on to the planet challenge. (That’s a fantastic start to Year 6)

Welcome to term 5 from Miss Morgan and Mr Bellas! (The first part of our summer term)

 

Firstly we have a change to the timetable this term. PE will be on a Monday with Miss Moores, so it’s very important to bring your PE kit. This is an easy way to get a house point!

 

In our topic this term we are looking at The Renaissance period of history. We will be using different plays from William Shakespeare to help us with our SPAG work. We know from looking at your homework from the holidays that we was a very famous playwright during the time of the Renaissance. Plus, in topic sessions we will look at the importance of travel and new discoveries during this time. 

 

In science we will continue to look at life cycles of plants and animals and do different fair tests so that you can improve your science investigation skills. 

 

Our class book for the summer term is ‘The Abominables’ by Eva Ibbotson. I am sure that you will enjoy the different adventures that the characters get up to. I have really enjoyed reading the book during the Easter holidays!

 

Lastly, a reminder to keep learning your times tables so that you can increase your score and progress through the times tables awards. Remember, you are going for gold! Once you have reached gold you can then go on to the planet challenge. 

Welcome to Class 5T1!

Welcome to term 4 from Miss Morgan and Mr Bellas!

 

We have lots to do this term connected with the whole school topic of ‘The World’s Kitchen’. We will be looking at the use of maps, atlases, globes and taking a really good look at Spain. We will be looking at the country, including the different regions and what they have to offer (including their food!)

 

In art we are looking at the work of a famous Spanish artist – Pablo Picasso. In particular we will be exploring his cubist paintings and having a go at creating our own! That should be very interesting to see! In our science work we will be looking at animals and living things, including different work connected to plants. 

 

We will continue to do PE every Monday and now each Wednesday, so please ensure that you have your kit in school on these days. 

 

Also a reminder to keep learning your times tables so that you can increase your score and progress through the times tables awards. Remember, you are going for gold! 

 

Happy New Year from Miss Morgan and Mr Bellas!

 

We have lots of work to do in this first term of 2015. As you already know we are looking at the Anglo Saxon period of history and so we will be seeing how different life was for them. Keep an eye out for any Anglo Saxons around school – particularly towards the end of term! 

 

The term will also involve different art and DT work using clay and different construction materials – sometimes just as the Anglo Saxons would have done over 1000 years ago.  In our science work we will be looking at different forces and how they are used in our everyday life. 

 

We will continue to do PE every Monday and Thursday, so please ensure that you have your kit in school on these days. 

 

Also a reminder to keep learning your times tables so that you can increase your score and progress through the times tables awards. Remember, you are going for gold! 

Planetarium Experience

 

On Tuesday 2nd December Year 5 had a visit from a mobile planetarium that had been set up in the hall during their lunch break. The next day 5T1 wrote about what they had seen during their visit and what their favourite parts of the 45 minute show were. Here are a selection of extracts from their work: 

 

First the man who was presenting told us to get into a dark black tunnel and we ended up in a massive tent that was called a dome. (Mabruk Y)

 

We had to go inside by crawling through a little tunnel, which was funny and it was bigger than it looked! The man, who was teaching us, told us to sit on the lines so the planetarium wouldn’t fall down. (Helia)

 

I liked it when we went through the tunnel and also when we lay down to look at the beautiful, interesting stars. (Liliana) 

 

I really enjoyed laying down on the floor to see the constellations such as Orion; such as Scorpio; such as Taurus the bull; such as Orion’s belt. I enjoyed it so much I just wish there was much more time left as there was much more we could have talked about such as the galaxies and stars. (Rohit)

 

We got to lay on the floor and look at the sky with all the stars there and I really liked laying on the floor. Actually, I really liked everything really! (Aaliyahna)

 

We got taught about the different planets there are like Pluto, Mars, Venus, and Saturn. It was cool to learn that if you put your hand in Venus’ clouds all your skin would be burnt off because of the acid in the clouds. (David)
