Jaguars – Year 5
Welcome to Year 5 and
Spring 2 2022
Our class text is Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. We have enjoyed reading the book and have created some excellent pieces of writing based on aspects of ancient Greek life and culture. We wrote character descriptions of Hades, god of the Underworld, and newspaper reports about the Battle of Troy.
We also had a visit from Discover History, who delivered a workshop for us about the Battle of Evesham. We looked at the key figures involved in the battle, the weapons used and how the battle was fought. What a fantastic day!
Spring 1 2022
Our topic for this term is the ancient Greeks. We jumped right in with an experience day with 'Aegeus'! Aegeus was a Spartan warrior and he came to visit us, all the way from ancient Greece to tell us about life and culture in ancient Greece. He also had some requests: we made tiles, charms, medicine bags, mosaics and more.
Autumn 2 2021
Our main topic in Autumn 2 is Earth and Space and our class text is 'Cosmic' by Frank Cottrell-Boyce. We really recommend it!
At the start of Autumn 2 we read The Last Post by Keith Campion. It is a book consisting of letters between a son and his father who is at war. We wrote letters from the perspective of the father and described his living conditions.
Autumn 1 2021
To start off our year in Jaguar Class, we researched jaguars. We found out that they are the third largest big cat in the world and have the most powerful bite in the big cat family! These majestic creatures inspired us to create some art. What do you think?
We enjoyed reading 'Wisp: A Story of Hope' as a class book. We retold the story from the perspective of the wisp and produced some beautiful writing. Take a look!
