Jaguars – Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 and
Jaguar Class!

 

Spring 1 2021

Our topic for Spring 1 is Amazing Americas! We will research areas of USA and find out about a Native American tribe called the Iroquois tribe. We will also create totem poles in art and create our own games in computing. In science, we will explore sustainability and climate change.

In art, we have used our sketching skills to draw our own Native American totem poles.

Autumn 2 2020

Before Christmas we produced some writing based on My Christmas Star. We worked hard to develop our narrative writing skills and create imaginative writing. Take a look!

Remembrance Day 2020

We developed our understanding of Remembrance Day and read the poem 'In Flanders Fields' by John McCrae. We used the symbol of the poppy to create our own Remembrance Day art.

Our main topic in Autumn 2 was Earth and Space. Our class text was 'Cosmic' by Frank Cottrell-Boyce. We really recommend it!

We have been working really hard to produce some excellent writing based on 'Cosmic'. Take a look!

Autumn 1

Our topic in Autumn 1 was Diversity. We read 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers and some chapters of 'Wonder' by R. J. Palacio. We also watched the film adaptation of 'Wonder' to explore and celebrate diversity.

We wrote diary entries as if we were Auggie, the main character in 'Wonder', and newspaper reports to explain the 'highlight of the year': the nature reserve trip.

In art we have been experimenting with sketching techniques and in RE we have been exploring 'peace' across different religions. In Geography we have been exploring our diverse world and in science we have been learning about Earth and Space in preparation for our class text next half term. To celebrate the end of our diversity topic we explored the diversity of our school grounds and went snail and newt hunting!
