5M

Welcome to 5M with Mrs McGlasson, Mrs McDowell and Mrs Hughes

More Maths fun in 5M

Playing 'less than' and 'greater than' in Maths

Our first topic of the year is 'Stargazers'. The children enjoyed designing and making their own space helmets.

Welcome to 5J with Mrs Jackson, Mrs Lee and Miss Wilson

 

In 5J we work hard and do our absolute best.  It doesn’t matter what lesson it is – we give 100%.  We especially enjoy computing lessons in which we are actual computer programmers; it doesn’t seem like work at all - it’s fun!  PE lessons with Mr Wright and Music with Mr Milner are brilliant as well.  One of our favourite parts of the day is when we read the class novel,  we all get to follow the text and take turns reading.  This year we have agreed that we are going to make sure that we ‘Strive for 5’ EVERY WEEK.  As well as this, we are ‘Going for Gold!’  as we all want to get our Gold Tables Awards.

It is going to be a GREAT year!

Parliament Day

For Parliament Day set up a mock parliament in our classroom. We debated our views then held a vote, some of us were not always happy about the out come but it helped us to understand how democracy works and why it is so important.

Spring Term ! Happy New Year !

The classroom is ready for the children's return! We have inspirational new displays for our Science based topic 'Beast Creator' and this half term's mysterious tale 'Skellig'. The children will be reflecting on their achievements over the past year and sharing their hopes and aspirations for 2017.

Skellig

We have finished Skellig - our class novel - and we have loved it. Here we are watching the film and comparing it to the text.

Look at our amazing Bug Hotel.

As part of our topic, Beast Creator, we are learning about mini-beasts and their habitats.  We designed our Bug Hotel and made it together and we are very proud of it. We will monitor it closely to see which creatures check in.

Cumbria Wildlife Trust

 

Mr Normington and his colleagues Sian and Isaac came to visit us and and told us all about living things in our environment. We found his presentation fascinating and we really enjoyed field work in our own school grounds. This was a great start to our topic Beast Creator in which we will learn about mini-beasts and their habitats.

Visit to a Buddhist Temple

 

5J  had a wonderful day visiting the  Kadampa Buddhist Temple.  We have been studying Buddhism and we impressed the staff at the temple with our subject knowledge as well as with our ability to meditate.  The nun who you can see speaking to us in some of the pictures is called Zogden which means  'Complete One'.

Summer is here!

The children are enjoying break times on the field and already practising for Sports Day, so fingers crossed for fine weather over the forthcoming weeks. Our Year 5 residential visit to Hawse End, on the shores of Derwent Water, is also coming up. This is a fantastic opportunity for children to experience a variety outdoor activities, we are really looking forward to it!
