to Year 5!

 

 

 

In Class 5, we believe it is important to learn how to learn. The adults in the class support children in becoming independent, confident learners with learning behaviours that they can use throughout their education.

Autumn Term

The children in Year 5 have thoroughly enjoyed our Earth and Space topic. They have learnt so much in such a short space of time (no pun intended). Scroll down to see the amazing things they have been up to here at Holy Redeemer.

September 2017

To help us learn the order of the planets we made up our own mnemonics, watched videos, played games and even made our own dioramas. 

We have also been busy learning about the sun and the orbits of the Earth and moon. We made posters, created animations using J2E, made working models and even used dance and drama to help us with our learning!

 

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

On Monday 9th October the children presented their Space Exhibition to the school and their families. They first decided how to advertise the event and then designed invitations, posters and wrote letters. 

The exhibition was a huge success! The children were extremely proud of their Un-homework projects, dioramas, Peter Thorpe art pieces and science work. The other children in school were amazed at what Year 5 had produced and many of them learnt new and interesting facts. 

It wasn’t long before the parents and family members came to see our exhibition…

Thank you to all who attended. The exhibition was a great success!

September 2017

This half term English, we have been studying the book The Tear Thief, by Carol Ann Duffy.

We have found the book so engaging and exciting. It has really helped us to develop our creative writing skills. 

In The Tear Thief, Carol Ann Duffy describes emotions using colour symbolism. We thought about the colours that might represent different emotions and developed our colour mixing skills in art to make different shades of these. In English, we added words to our colour wheel and then put these into descriptive sentences.

We read a fantastic book called The Darkest Dark by astronaut Chris Hadfield. It helped us to think about our own aspirations. We considered what sort of traits we need to display to be able to achieve our goals.
