Year 5/6 Red
A very warm and smiley welcome to Year 5/6 red! I am super excited for another year, and can't wait to see what my new class has in store for me... I am sure it will be a year full of learning and laughter!
MEET THE CLASS
Meet our Christmas elf who the children have named ‘Mischief’...
You can keep up with his cheeky exploits here in the run up to Christmas!
Presentations: 11th December
Freddie shared today about a passion of his: Rugby League. He really knows his stuff!
Music Composition: 5th December
We have been composing some simple pieces of music his term, using our new knowledge of music reading and writing on a stave. Today was performance day!
Allegories: 30th November
We have been reading and writing allegorical stories (stories with a message or a deeper meaning). This is the opening from Josh’s story - some fabulous language and vocabulary being used!
Presentations: 13th November
Evie taught us all about Lanzarote - including testing us with a quiz - today, and Elsa & Amy shared about baking. They were very both very popular presentations: they all brought food for us to try and, as you can see from the pictures, it was enjoyed by all (including Miss King).
Presentations: 6th November
Henry, Noa and Issie & Olivia shared their presentations today. Henry told us all about our beautiful city, York. Noa taught us a lot about World War II and Issie and Olivia shared all about Hallowe’en.
Making a River: 27th October
We used trenches and sand to create our very own rivers! We poured water into the trench at the top of the hill and then carefully observed as our river began to form: we spotted the channel it made; we noticed the erosion and deposition, and enjoyed watching it meander.
Water Resistance: 25th October
We did our class experiment today to find out whether the shape of an object affects how quickly it moves through water. We mounded blu-tac into a variety of shapes and timed how long it took for each shape to reach the bottom of our measuring cylinder. What do you think we discovered?
Presentations: 23rd October
Charlie and Ollie & Joe were the second sets of children to take on peer presentations. Charlie shared a quest story he had written. Ollie and Joe shared some information about Spain, including bringing some Spanish olives for some children to try.
Quest Stories: 13th October
We're really enjoying writing our quest stories up in Year 5/6! Today, we spent some time out in the school woods, to help us imagine what our heroes might feel, see, hear, taste and smell whilst on their quest! It really helped us with our descriptive writing.
Christmas Cards: 12th October
A sneak preview of the children's Christmas cards that will be coming home today. You can order packs of cards with your child's designs, which will raise money for the PTA.
'Bridges' Gymnastics: 9th October
We have been creating gymnastic sequences in groups. They had to include different types of bridges, as well as all the things we already know from gymnastics lessons: jumps, travelling, rolls, balances and, of course, good starting and finishing positions.
Dalby Forest Trip: 25th September
All of Year 5/6 travelled to Dalby Forest to do some stream flow experiments, write some water poetry and go on a Dragon Hunt...
('We're going to catch a big one. What a beautiful day! We're not scared!')
