Year 5 and 6
We could not be prouder with the donations the whole school made to this year's harvest festival. We are so amazed with Year 5's assembly tackling their Global Goal for the year- Zero Hunger.
Year 5 and 6 are back and ready to work hard work this term! We have already produced some fantastic work on our focus topic 'The Ancient Greeks'. Have a look below at some of our art works inspired by our focus text 'The Adventures of Odyssesus' by Hugh Luptop:
This week we worked with Medical Mavericks and broadened our understanding of practical PE and Science. Here are a few of our photos:
Our new classrooms:
This term we have developed our knowledge on our focus topic: The Ancient Greeks. Here's what we think of our topic so far:
"I really enjoy learning about the Greeks because it helps us understand the worlds history, its actually quite interesting. I liked learning about all the powers of the gods and goddesses." Dan - Londonderry Class.
" I enjoy the Greeks because I like their ideas of democracy and rules. It's good to see that we use so many of these still today!" John- Dorest Class
"I've liked learning about the Ancient Greeks, you can learn lots of different things like the traditional myths and legends. My favourite one was Medusa." Gabriel - Inverness-Shire Class
"I like learning about the Greeks, we are reading 'The Adventures of Odysseus' at the moment. It's a really interesting book, my favourite chapter is 'The Cyclops." Macie- Inverness-Shire Class
"I liked learning about all the gods and goddesses and how people worshiped them. If I was a Greek God I would want to be Zeus because he can control lightening." Charlie- Norfolk Class.
In Science this term Year 6 have been studying Earth and Space. They have had a great time using the Virtual Reality Headsets to explore the International Space Station, modelling scientific theories and testing what affects the size of craters on the Moon.
Here are some pictures of our lessons.
