Autumn Term 2017

 

Our first topic in the Autumn term is ‘Groovy Greeks’ where we will find out about life in

Ancient Greece. This topic will begin with a very exciting Ancient Greek murder mystery to solve!

Children will look at everyday life; they will research who the gods were that the Greeks used to worship, Greek architecture, the theatre and the Arts, and the Olympics. We will be closely linking this topic to our lessons in English, DT, Computing and Music. DT will involve designing and sewing puppets based on famous Ancient Greek gods and mythical characters. We will be learning a number of different stitches some of which are very hard. It will all be a lot of fun!

 

After half term, we will focus on finding out about the earth, sun and moon in our science based topic ‘To infinity and beyond!’ Here, we will learn about our solar system and the conditions on other planets. We will rise to the challenge of designing and making our very own battery powered lunar buggies in DT. We are also excited for our school trip.

Autumn 2 - To Infinity and Beyond 

This half term we are learning about the earth, sun and moon.

This topic will be launched by children planning their own mission to Mars, where children will decide what objects they would take on their expedition. We will also be attending The National Science and Media Museum on a school trip.

Christmas Party!

An afternoon of festive fun and games!

"It was nice creating Moon buggies that could move." - Libby Whitaker

 

"Making the Moon buggies was awesome because we cut the wood and did the electronics!" - Harry Southam

 

"I really enjoyed this, it was fun." - Ella Campbell

 

"It was fun because I got to use a saw!" - Annabelle Beckram

Karate

This term, we have loved having Andy come in to teach us Karate on a Monday afternoon. Go to our PE page to check out some photos and videos of us in action!

Anti-Bullying Week

As part of Anti-Bullying week, we went outside to sign our names on the walls by the Friendship Bench to show our support of anti-bullying. We also did some work in lessons around this year's theme of 'All Different, All Equal' and created a jigsaw made up of individual pieces to represent each member of our class.

"Writing things on the wall was very inspiring." - Emma Meng

 

"This was fun and it showed bullies what friends are for." - Jake Whittaker

 

"I felt happy writing the message because I was supporting people who get bullied." - Libby Whitaker

We had an amazing day out at the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford to launch our new topic about Space. We watched a 3D IMAX film about the International Space Station, explored their Wonderlab and looked around some of the other exhibits.The highlight being Tim Peake's spacecraft and we heard how he travelled up to the International Space Station and descended back to earth in it! We were surprised how small it was!

"It was sooo fun! I loved it that much that I went again with my Dad!" - Darcey Hunter

 

"I loved going there and watching the space video and learning all about space." - Lottie Massam

 

"I was happy to go on the Science trip because we saw the spaceship." - Karina Mitchell-Lonsdale

 

"I found it great finding out about new stuff I didn't know." - Tyler Schofield

 

"The trip was really cool because Tim Peake's space shuttle was there." - Harry Southam

For our Design Technology project this term, we designed and then made our own Ancient Greek puppets. We took design inspiration from the Greek Gods/Goddesses, Minotaur and Medusa. It took several weeks to prepare all the individual parts of the puppets before we started stitching them together. Some of us found it quite tricky to do the sewing, but we are all very proud of what we have produced.

"I found it fun but the sewing was quite hard." - Ruby Whitaker

 

"I liked making the Ancient Greek puppets, although it was tricky." - Harry Carlton

 

"I found it really fun to sew again and I made a Minotaur." - Aaron Stott

 

"I thought it was fun but thought the sewing was tricky." - Darcey-Grace Daniels

"It was fun to learn how to solve crimes." - Harry Carlton

 

"This was amazing because there was a lot of tension!" - Rylee Sobieralski-Kirkbright

 

"It was really good because me and everyone had lots of fun." - Liam Grant

 

"I liked it because I worked with new people." - Annabelle Beckram

 

"It was best thing I ever did!" - Matthew Bodkin

In Science we made Helicopters and investigated if the weight of an object affects the speed that it falls.

Bikeability training

For British Science Week, we decided to try and make bouncing eggs in Year 5. We boiled the eggs and put them in vinegar for the whole week. On Friday afternoon we took them outside to test them. What a brilliant egg-speriment!!

Spring 1 - Extreme Earth!

This half term we are learning all about natural disasters, we will be looking at what causes natural disasters to occur as well as the destruction which they cause

We all took part in a maths workshop to celebrate our school maths week.

 

Autumn Term 2 - To infinity and Beyond!

We will be focusing on finding out about the earth, sun and moon in our science based topic ‘To infinity and beyond!’ Here, we will learn about our solar system and the conditions on other planets. We will rise to the challenge of designing and making our very own battery powered lunar buggies in DT. We are also excited for our school trip to Keighley Star Centre too!

We will be closely linking this topic to our lessons in English, DT, Computing and Music. In computing, children will research the Ancient Greek gods using the internet and produce a presentation of their findings using Prezi. DT will involve designing and sewing puppets based on famous Ancient Greek gods and mythical characters. It will all be a lot of fun!
