Year 5 & 6

Welcome to Years 5 and 6!

Newton Class, Bronte Class and Jobs class welcome you to our webpage. On here you can find out about what we are learning, see some examples of our work and see photographs of any events that are happening in school or in our year group.

Our topic this term is:

Allotments and Farming

 

Have you wondered what the different types of farming are?

What is the difference between Arable farming and Pastoral farming? 

What is crofting? Who grows the flowers that we might buy for our mums for Mother's Day?

Well wonder no more!

 

This term we will be finding out as much as we can about the farming profession!

 

 


 

Are you green - fingered?

Do you like growing plants?

Do you know the best time to plant different crops?

Do you know someone with an allotment?

Could you go and help out at an allotment?

 

Also this half term, we will be thinking about 

designing (and making) a scarecrow, designing our own allotment patch and the gardening group have even set us a challenge - to grow some potatoes in our classroom! 

 

 

This week we were lucky enough to have 'Rock Steady' visit our school to do a short workshop with each year group. The children didn't have very long to learn each of their instruments but they were able to put together a beat and create a sound in a short amount of time.

I hope you agree - they sounded amazing!

IMMERSING OURSELVES IN ENGLISH

 

Since the beginning of term we have been immersing ourselves in some fantastic novels.

 

In each key stage 2 classroom there is an amazing inspirational display that has been taken from each of the texts.

 

Here are the year 5 and 6 classrooms.

During the Autumn term, we were studying a  topic called I.D.

 

In this topic we will be asking ourselves questions like:

What is DNA?

What characteristics have I inherited?

What makes us different?

Who are the scientists who discovered DNA?

What does my fingerprint look like?

 

 

 

 

In English, we read:

Tick, tock, tick, tock!

Some stories are like that. Once you've wound them up, nothing will stop them ...

A tormented apprentice clock-maker, a deadly mechanical knight in armour - and the sinister Dr Kalmenius, who some say is the devil ...

Wind up these characters, fit them into a story on a cold winter's evening, with the snow swirling down, and suddenly life and the story begin to merge in a peculiarly macabre - and unstoppable - way.

Almost like clockwork ...
