Welcome to Oak Class, Year 5
Welcome back to term 5! Miss Jones and I are looking forward to seeing the exciting work the children will produce this term. We will be looking at the Galapagos Islands and reading the book Kensuke’s Kingdom for our topic this term. We hope to develop our learning attitudes and continue to show caring and self-responsible behaviour.
This term we’ll be exploring frozen kingdoms as we discover what Ernest Shackleton’s journey entailed back in 1914 on the ship, The Endurance. We’ll mainly be finding out about the southernmost continent, Antarctica as well as comparing it to the most northern and coldest of the American states – Alaska. We’ll be in awe of the northern lights and in fear of the harsh living conditions. We will also be exploring how the climate is changing and the effects on the planet, now and in the future.
War and Peace
This term, we will be researching and learning about World War One. The children will have the opportunity to explore what life was like for people in the trenches, and life back home in England. We will also be creating persuasive writing and poetry, based on our research. In science we will be learning about air resistance and what makes a good plane or parachute. In maths we will be doing long multiplication and fractions. I look forward to seeing what amazing work the children will create this term.
3,2,1 Blast Off!
Welcome to term two in Oak Class! I hope you have had a great half term. We have an exciting term planned through our topic of ‘3,2,1. Blast off!’. We will be looking at the science fact in the form of the universe and the history of space travel. Also, we will be working with Science fiction to create some memorable stories and pieces of fiction.
I will be out on the playground each morning from 8.25 am, so please do come and say hi and if you should have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Term 1. SOLD
Welcome to Oak Class. I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and enjoyed some sunshine!Mrs. Knight and I are excited to be welcoming the children in to their new classroom and we look forward to an exciting year ahead.
We will be out on the playground each morning from 8.25 am, so please do come and say hi and if you should have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Our topic this term is on Bristol’s role in the slave trade. We hope to visit many places in and around Bristol which will bring this fascinating topic alive as well as working hard in class. We will find out about some key figures in Bristol’s history and what this means for us today. Not only that, our art will be based on slave quilts and the symbols and codes held within them – we’ll even attempt to make our own quilts!
