Welcome to The Swans' Class, 2019-2020!
We are Year 5 and 6!
Our teacher is Miss Leo and our L.S.A's are: Mrs Cross and Miss Challis.
This term, our overall theme is 'Journeys'. In history, we will be looking at the journey through time and understanding chronology. In geography, we will be learning about the journey our water takes from Moor to Sea. In science, we will be learning about the journey it takes to become a butterfly.
Please find our topic overviews for this term below so you can find out what we are getting up to!
Come back to look at photos of our work!
Times Table Practice
The year 5 pupils spent some time playing lots of different games to practice their times tables. Learning them through games makes it a lot more fun!
The year 6 pupils had the opportunity to have a surfing lesson with Discovery Surf School! We learnt how to stand on a surf board while catching waves. We also spoke about water safety while at the beach.
We have started our block of forest school learning. We started by being set a cooking challenge and building a fire.
African Drumming Workshop
We've had great fun this morning taking part in our African Drumming workshop. The children showed excellent listening skills and responded well to the new rhythms they learnt. We hope you enjoy our final performance!
BBC Radio Two 500 Words Challenge
The children in Swans Class have planned, written, edited and published their own unique short story to enter into the 500 words challenge competition.
I am delighted to be able to share some of the final edits that have been submitted.
Phases of the Moon
The children have been learning about the different phases of the moon. We talked about what they are called and how they look in the sky. We recreated a model using oreos to represent the moon.
