Welcome back!

 

It is lovely to welcome all of the pupils into Years 5 and 6 for this academic year. This term, we are starting our new topic ‘Conflicts’ where the pupils will be learning about conflicts in the past, both in Wales and the wider world, including World War 2. The pupils will be at the heart of their learning as they will be sharing their ideas with their class on the things they would like to learn. The pupils’ ideas will then be used to ensure there is full coverage of the curriculum through the six areas of learning including: Health and Wellbeing, Language, Literacy and Communication, Mathematics and Numeracy, Science and Technology, Expressive Arts and Humanities. Within our topic we will be focusing on different big questions.

 

Our first big question this term is: World War 2. What Happened?

Class 11 have really enjoyed learning about Jesus the 'light of the world'. We looked at why he is considered this and created a stain glass window to represent the light. We have them up on display on our class window. Why don't you have a look next time you pass by!

Class 11 and Class 14 have been very busy planning a Science experiment based on light. We looked at what is needed when planning an experiment such as equipment. We looked at the method and made a prediction for each material. We used key words such as translucent, transparent and opaque. We have all worked really well together as a team and have enjoyed planning and completing this experiment! Our next job is to write a conclusion about our findings...

Class 11 and Class 14 had a lovely afternoon yesterday learning all about Van Gogh and his famous art work. They enjoyed creating their own oil pastel flowers which were inspired by Van Gogh famous painting 'Sunflowers'. Well done everyone!

Here are some pictures of our first couple of days back in Class 11!
