Happy New Year!

Welcome to out Class five blog!

We've had a great week in class 5.  In literacy we've been learning about formal language and designing informal information posters.  This lead on from our work on apostrophes.  Also, in maths we have been working on 2D shapes, mostly quadrilterals, and  all their marvellous properties!  We are glad we have gone over this as it will help us with our SATs.  Earlier on this week we learnt more about the Earth's many layers and went inside a deadly volcano (sort of).  The damage a volcano can do is really fascinating.


All of the choir are really excited aout the O2 and some of us will be going to the Royal Albert hall.  We have all been working really hard towards it, learning the moves and the lyrics.  We are sure we will really enjoy it.


As most of you will know we have recently heard about an exciting new trip coming up to go and see the magnificent Peter Pan on Ice!  All of can't wait and we are sure it will be amazing!


Well it is goodbye from us now, but there will be a new pair of bloggers next week with more news from Class 5.  So it's goodbye from us and good luck to our first ever lacrosse team in their match at Barnwell next week.

News from Class 5

Class 5 have had a great first 8 weeks at school with a brilliant year 6 setting a fantastic example and the year 5s hot on their heels.


I'm feeling really lucky to have such a hard working class, who have been busy setting themselves targets and striving to achieve their very best. We are looking forward to giving the parents and the rest of the school a sample of what we have been learning so far during our class assembly on Friday this week; we hope it will be well attended.


As we head for half term the children are looking forward to a well earned rest ready for a busy 7 weeks when we return in November.

SATs over, but no time to rest!

With the SATs done for year 6 it has been excellent for the children's minds to set on other parts of the curriculum which are not officially assessed!  Over the past few weeks the children have been busy honing their sketching techniques.  They looked at different ways of shading, the effects of different grades of pencil, how you can create different textures using pencils, ways to get a feel for perspective and much more ... all of this led to their final landscape drawing of our beautiful church.  Some examples can be seen on the gallery, please take a look, I am sure you will agree the children have really showed their artistic flair.  I know class 5 are now excited with lots of different events coming up in the not too distant future, such as auditions for our annual production, sports day, school journey and of course the up and coming talent show which the year 6 children are busy planning for Friday.  It's going to be a busy time andI am looking forward to spending these last few weeks with year 6 having lots of fun ... and learning something too!

This half term we have being carrying out a book study of the well known classic The BFG. We have used this brilliant piece of writing to explore lots of different styles of writing, looking at play-scripts, descriptive pieces, how characters are developed, diary entries and much more. This week we focused on the style of Roald Dahl and talked about what techniques he uses in this book, and many of his others. Class 5 had a specific chapter to try and write, being told only the basic events within the section. Here's a great example from Charlotte which really shows how she emulated the style of Roald Dahl, as well as using brilliant story writing techniques.
"The Head of the Army marched in with his head held high. "Take a seat." said the Queen. He sat down. Sophie sat there examining him. "As you said, Queen we have a very big problem. Giants!" yelled the Head of the Army.
"Oh golly! The giants is probably hearing you in Giant Land!" announced The BFG. The Head of the Army ignored him.
"There have been reports of children going missing in all different parts of the world M'am." explained the Head of the Army.
"we only have eight hours," said The BFG
"Then what are we doing standing here, we must shoot them all!" bellowed the head of the army.
"Violence is not the answer," confirmed the Queen.
"Then what should we do!" Growled the head of the Army, jumping up from the chair, his black moustache began to shake as he spoke. Sophie had to bite her lip to stop her from laughing.
"I has an idea," said the BFG.
