Using our felt poppy designs to create cushions for DT.

June 2022

Class 5 have learnt how to felt. We created poppy designs to link with our history topic WW2.

Class 5 enjoyed a visit from Mrs Gillbard, who brought along some chicks to show us. 


Class 5 have been busy being creative this month. The children completed their masks before moving on to painting cityscapes. We ended the term with a visit from the Easter bunny and the Easter Egg.Hunt. 


Last week, we celebrated St. Piran’s Day in school. We learnt a Cornish song and started our DT project ‘Making Pasties’. We began by finding out about the history of the Cornish pasty, looking at the journey of some of the ingredients from field to fork and thinking about food miles. This week, with the help of Mrs Juckett, we got to make our pasties!

World Book Day 2022


Class 5 enjoyed their ‘Healthy Movers’ day. Mr Robinson taught us lots about healthy diet and ways to exercise.

In literacy, we learnt about writing play scripts. We linked this work to our whole class reading book ‘There’s a boy in the girls’ bathroom’ and to our computing unit which was about filming. This allowed us to work in groups to write stage directions, act out and perform scenes and then film them using the techniques we had learnt in Computing using different camera angles.

Learning about fractions through practical tasks.


Class 5 have worked incredibly hard this week and have now completed their assessments. Today, they’ve enjoyed wearing their Christmas jumpers; walked over to the church to see the Christmas trees and took part in Music and Art lessons this afternoon. 


Class 5 enjoyed making an orrery in Science today. 

On Friday, Class 5 enjoyed taking part in the sponsored skipping event.


Class 5 enjoyed taking part in the Mini London Marathon in Schools event. We completed 2.6 miles. 

For DT, Class 5 have made moving cams toys. Their designs were linked to our History topic of Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. The children explored different types of cams and the movements they created, before constructing their final pieces. 

Class 5 have settled in really well to this academic year. They have been working hard and developing new skills!

We have just finished our first unit of writing in Literacy. The children wrote poems in the style of ‘The Sea’ by James Reeves. Some children shared these in assembly last week to tie in with National Poetry Day. 


We have enjoyed learning to sing Livin’ on a prayer by Bon Jovi and using the glockenspiels to play a section of the backing track.
