Believe, Care, Strive, Achieve

Class 5H 2020-2021

Welcome to year 5.  This gallery shows some of our experiences.

In science, we have been finding out about earth and space, to explore time zones, we were challenged to use atlases, and time zone maps as well as recording the times, in analogue and digital ways.

For our daily advent challenges we have joined Outdoor Ted and created leaf art, paper snowflakes, ice cube towers.  We have also done several physical performance challenges and an alphabet challenge finding objects around class.

In computing we have been exploring skills to create more effective vector drawings. In this session we created a penguin using shapes and layering techniques. We then were challenged to compare the penguin to a vector parrot and created our own. We then had fun changing the fill/lines style and colour to create a colourful selection of parrots.

We have been learning how to use a compass accurately. We managed to find our treasure too.

We had great fun exploring the different soil types through our Forest Quest experience. We looked at the structure of the three soil types found in the forest, for our earth studies. Exploring the clay was messy work but a lot of fun too, we dug up our own clay and modelled tree faces. We also explored the techniques used to build housing from the Anglo-Saxon times by creating wattle and daub. 

Over this half term we have been studying mountains in geography and art, here are some of our exploratory work and final pieces.

This week in our outdoor forest learning experience we explored reproduction of plants and animals, and had fun investigating an egg to find the germinal disk. We also enjoyed some team challenges, chariot and camel racing.

It was great to have the visiting skipping coach, who taught us lots of skipping games, now that we have our own class skipping rope collection we are also skipping a lot at breaktimes too.

Discovering which animals are around the woodland, was achieved by exploring the contents of owl pellets and using an identification chart.

Working in teams to walk in time with each other to step on the finish line together.

We had a great first session in the forest, enjoying connecting with the environment through our five senses. We participated in many games to explore each of our senses individually.


Dissecting flowers to name the parts was fun in Science, along with taking cuttings to clone herbs.
