Welcome all new Year 5 children, hope you've had a great Summer. We are all looking forward to the exciting year ahead with our first trip to Winchester Science Museum on Wednesday 18th September 2019.   You will explore the stars and planets, and investigate using science experiments and more.

Nelson Mandela - Summer 2019 Topic

Nelson Mandela - Summer 2019 Topic 1

Essential Question - Does Everyone have the Right to Freedom?

 

 Summer's Theme Topic 2019 - Nelson Mandela and Apartheid

 

What's going on?

This term we are investigating and researching into Nelson Mandela and apartheid in South Africa. We launched the topic by segregating the boys and girls into to two areas - the boys had the freedom and do what they liked, the girls were kept in a specific small place and had to write lines. Lots of grumbles were made, then the girls area was made smaller, and so the moaning and comments were made. It was interesting that the grumbles were not made just by the girls, but the boys by saying how unfair it was that the girls were kept in their small area and they didn't like the fact the girls weren't allowed to talk to the boys.  This started a great discussion, but also showed us that the children had tolerance of and accepting that everyone is different - well done Year 5.

 

Trip

We are off to 'Farnham Sculpture Park', and from this we hope to gain inspiration to create our own sculptures based upon South Africa and Nelson Mandela. Year 5 will then sell these as our 'Authentic Outcome', to raise money for the Nelson Mandela Foundation.

 

Foundation/ Scrap Book Learning 

Year 5 will be looking at reversible and irreversible changes in Science, create African music ourselves by composing a piece of music based upon an African story. Art will see us creating a sculpture and Batik art, along with History researching and understanding apartheid and what it meant to all. Geography and DT will see Year 5 creating a video using green screen on Nelson Mandela and his fight for freedom, while Geography will look at the features of Africa.

Spring's Theme Topic 2019 - Egyptians

Spring's Theme Topic  2019 - Egyptians 1

 

 Spring Term 2019 - Essential Question: Is Water an Essential?

 

 What's going on?

 This term we are visiting London to visit the British Museum and the Egyptian section. We are really looking forward to seeing the Mummy's - not our own mums, but the ancient Egyptian ones! We'll be creating an exhibition at the end of the topic and sell some canvas bags with our own Egyptian designs, display our Egyptian work and create a leaflet that gives facts to younger children. 

 

As well as the usual - PE, Literacy and Maths, we will also be taking part in sport fixtures like Athletics, football for boys and girls and Cross country running.   In Geography we will be looking at comparing deserts from around the world, where they can be found - using our 'Daily Dashboard', and investigating the animals and plants in Science. History is the main theme and through this we will be searching out why the pyramids were built, why they mummified certain people, how did they build the pyramids and many other questions. 

 

So, a busy term for Year 5, but we are ready for it!

We went outside and created maze's linked to our book we were reading - The Maze Runner by James Dashner, we did this to experience what it would be like to be in a maze and we also like to challenge each other!

   Autumn 2018 - The Greeks

   This term, Year 5 are investigating the Greeks and how they have affected the world.  We will look at 'Ancient Greece' through to 'Modern Greece' - comparing between the two and how Greece is similar or different to the UK.

 To kick start our Greek investigation, we held a Greek toga party and tried all things Greek.  Some brave children tried the Octopus!!!  

 What else has been going on!

 * We had a visit by the 'Life Bus', it visited and we talked about healthy living and what we can do to stay healthy.

 * We've been getting free fruit to support our healthy bodies and we take part in daily 'Brain Breaks'

 * As a school we have helped create the school displays - History, Geography, Art, RE etc. 

 * Some of us in Year 5 have taken part in sporting activities with other schools e.g. football and cross country running

 * Learning some great songs with Aled in our classes and then in singing assembly.

 * Started the 'Behaviour Bands' - we have to complete a set of criteria before we get a particular band. We first have no band, then we aim for a 'Rainbow', then a 'Bronze', followed by a 'Silver' and a 'Gold' band. Each new band we get we have a treat/ trip to help us keep showing our great behaviour. 

* Designing our own Christmas cards that can be printed and sold to raise money.

 

What is coming up!

* Body Percussion-This is a whole school activity that uses are body to make noises while using text to tell a story!

* Fireworks night - this is when the whole school, organised by Miss Jones, celebrate Bonfire Night with our families

* A school disco so we can let our hair down and raise money for the school

* Christmas parties

* Christmas and getting ready for the new year to begin.

Behaviour Bands - This shows you what each child must achieve before getting a reward for their excellent behaviour. Every child has one copy, and is highlighted when they achieve and show brilliant behaviour. Children can access this anytime to see what they need to work on to get to the next level.

This is our non-chronological report about Hobbits

This is our non-chronological report about Hobbits 2
We have been looking at a range of non-chronological reports.  We have looked at the similarities and differences between them.  Based on this, we have decided on some tools to use when we write our own.

We started the Hocus Pocus theme with a little bit of magic!

Mr Kops amazed us with his card trick, while Mrs Lambert and Miss Garrod practised their mind reading skills.

Then they taught us how to do magic too.

Why don’t you try it? 

 

Think of a number between 1 and 10 any number will do,

Now take that number and multiply it by 2

Are you ready?  Good, add 6

Halve the number in your head

Subtract the number you first thought of 

and the number you are now thinking of is...

After discovering some strange objects, we wrote a recount of the events.  We each had our own ideas about what had happened and used the evidence to prove it.  Did our visitors come from Narnia?  Was there a portal in our very own classroom?  It definitely got us thinking.
