Welcome to Bevan Class!

Bevan Class are taught by Mrs Graves (Monday - Wednesday morning) and Ms Blunt (Thursday - Friday).  We are fabulously supported by Mrs Cox.  The children in Bevan receive a specialist P.E session on Tuesday afternoons from Get Active.

In Bevan class, we believe in learning through fun. Promoting independent learners, confident to have a go, reflect, then edit their work.  We use resources and equipment as much as possible to ensure we have a deep understanding of the objectives we cover. 

Together, we have set and agreed to follow clear class rules to ensure our Behaviour for Learning is good.  We have high aspirations for our class, encouraging each and every child to strive to achieve their best.  We recognise  each others differences and celebrate each others achievements.  We aim to support all our pupils needs in class, using our Well being and SEND team where needed.

Term 2's Learning

Ssh… What’s that noise? Is it a bash, a crash, a shake or a hum? This half term, we’ll listen to a live musical performance, picking out the different sounds and techniques.  We’ll investigate the volume of sounds and make vibrations using different equipment. Our toes will be tapping along to all kinds of music.  We’ll create artwork that represents jazz music, and look at famous, jazz-influenced art. We’ll find out how our ear works, how sound travels and learn about pitch. In D&T, we’ll investigate how musical instruments work and enjoy making our own. We’ll share our favourite music and explore how music is used in everyday life.  We’ll also write a biography about pop stars.

Welcome to Hawking Class

HawkingWelcome to Hawking class! My name is Miss Ellwood and I teach in Year 5. We are also lucky enough to have a coach from Get Active to teach PE on a Thursday afternoon.

In Hawking we aim to create an atmosphere of mutual respect for each other and a resilience in our learning.  We will also develop our ability to work independently as well as collaboratively.  Although we work very hard, we have lots of fun along the way!

Term 2’s learning

During this half term, we’ll read information texts to find out about the Solar System and the Sun, using mnemonics to help us remember the facts. We’ll make a Solar System and investigate the cycle of day into night. We’ll learn about Galileo, the ‘father’ of modern astronomy and his famous astronomical discoveries. Taking on the roles of the planets, we’ll use movement to demonstrate the motions of the planets and moons. We’ll investigate space adventures and write newspaper reports. Then we’ll make a space shuttle or satellite, testing the materials for durability. At the end of the project, we’ll produce cushions on a space theme and consider the big question: why is there life on Earth?

Of course this only gives you a flavour of what the children will be getting up to in school this term and I am sure they will share many more of their learning experiences with you.

We look forward to a busy and productive term.

The Year 5 Team.

We take pride in ourselves, our work and our learning while having lots of fun along the way!

Term 2's Learning

Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands….  Vast wilds and hostile territories – incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and the deepest chill. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or be pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs.

Be alert, for magnificent mammals roam these lands, sometimes hungry or fresh for a fight. Perhaps a hungry polar bear or an arctic fox is hunting rodents, as swift as the wind!

Research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and ecosystems, and compose evocative poems about the Northern Lights.

Become part of an Antarctic rescues team, braving the elements to rescue terrified passengers from a ship struck by a deadly iceberg that hides deep beneath the Antarctic Ocean.

So wrap up well everyone and settle be the fire. I’m just going outside and may be sometime….

shackletonWelcome to Shackleton Class! My name is Mrs Radcliffe and I am the class teacher. We have fantastic support from Mrs Barker and Mrs Batchelor. Shackleton are also lucky enough to have the added experience of a coach from Get Active (PE) teaching them for certain lessons during the week.

In Shackleton we aim not only to do our best and reach our full potential by following the school values, but also to encourage the children to take increased responsibility, both for their learning, in preparation for secondary school, and by being excellent role models to the rest of the school.

How you can help

Please continue to support your child by encouraging them to read widely and frequently. They should also be discussing their reading with an adult on a regular basis. You could use the questions in their reading diary for ideas. Ensuring that your child is regularly practicing their multiplication tables is also incredibly beneficial for them. There are lots of ways that these facts can be practised; chanting, singing, games, apps, web sites or simply writing them out.
