Summer Term Topic

Year 5 Summer Term Topic- Beast Creators. 
For the Summer Tem children in year 5 will be focusing on Minibeasts! 
The children will gain the opportunity to explore the forestry, visit local natural destinations and take part in Minibeasts hunts to gather and collect data.
By the end of the term we hope that the children will develop a 3D Minibeast which they are able to present and discuss in front of their peers, this will develop oracy skils ready for Year 6!! 
We are hoping this will be an exciting and enjoyable topic to end ayear 5

P.S- Any old materials will be much appreciated in preparation for the children to make their very own Beast Creations !

Thanks got all your support

River Walk

This term Year 5 have been learning about 'The Story of Moses' with both Mrs Barter and Mrs Brown. The children spent a lot of time put themselves in the position of others (imagine how Moses mother felt when he had to leave him go in the basket along the river). The children use 'sticks' as a symbol of the basket and explained their thoughts and feelings as a parent. 
The children thoroughly enjoyed the walk and as a result produce fantastic letters and Diary entries.

Year 5 Making Mandel Bread

Last term year 5 were learning about Passover in R.E with Mrs Brown and Mrs Barter. The children had the opportunity to make their own Mandel Bread!

Our new topic for this half term is 'More than Mods an Rockers! This is a historical topic where the children will be learning about life in the 1960s, such as ; significant historical figures and events, musical culture, fashion influences and the range of artistic skills to create 'pop art'.

If you have anything that would be suitable for the classroom based on our topic this term this would be highly appreciated, for example; books, magazines, CDs or fashion accessories etc.

As you probably already know the children have a homework task to complete by the 3rd of March as this is an inset day, the homework is due to return on the. 4th of March. 

Thank you for you co-operation in advance.

Hope everyone is enjoying half term ��
