What are we learning about in Term 5?
Our topic for term 5 is 'Does the punishment fit the crime?'. We will be exploring all things crime and punishment related by journeying back in time through history. In english we will reading the famous narrative poem 'The Highway Man'; exploring poetry features, analysing and identifying the characters and storyline, creating wanted posters and writing diary entries. We will also be studying a non-fiction genre of discussion and persuasion by looking at crime in a real life context. In our topic lessons, we will be learning about crime and punishment through the ages and linking our DT and science topic by creating an alarm system. What an exciting topic this term!
The Term 5 class newsletter can be found further down the page under the 'Newsletter' section to find out more about what we will be doing in other subject areas.
Please click on the links below to access the remote learning resources for the appropriate week of the school closure.
If you would like any other resources, you can find suggested generic links under the 'School Closure' section of the school website, located here.
Below you will find links to websites and documents which will be useful for home learning.
Homework will consist of a multiple choice grid with many different types of activities to choose from which are all based around our topic. The children will be responsible for completing a task each week and recording it in the home learning book. Photographs or any documents can be sent via email and children can present their work to the rest of the class if they wish.
For Maths home learning, the children have access to Times Tables Rock Stars and Prodigy, of which the login information can be found in their reading record. The children also have access to Spelling Frame to help them practise their spellings which are sent home weekly.
Remember to keep up with the reading at home in order to get through as many books as possible on the Accelerated Reader scheme and accrue the number of points needed for the term.
Any help and support given with home learning is greatly received.
16.12.2020 - Harry Potter sewing
At the beginning of term we designed a case to fit a design brief - to create a case of our own choosing for a student at Hogwarts. The case had to be sewn together and made from felt, which had a fastening to open and close.
This week we have been finishing off our sewing. Here are some examples of the finished pieces:
10.12.2020 - Santa visit
We were lucky to have a visit from Santa during Christmas Cracker Week (socially distanced of course) - he knocked on our outside door to say hello and left us a bag of presents (apparently he is 'the man' according to Job!).
We loved our Christmas baubles with an Among Us character inside.
8.12.2020 - Card making
We enjoyed making Christmas cards during Christmas Cracker Week.
20.11.2020 - Odd socks day
We wore odd socks to school to raise awareness of anti-bullying week.
12.11.2020 - PE
In PE this term, we are doing gymnastics. In this lesson, we created our own balances with a partner. There were some amazing and creative balances! We will use these as part of our sequence that we are putting together over the next few weeks.
4.11.2020 - English
We used persuasive techniques to convince the publishers whether or not to publish Harry Potter. We used the opening part of the book to help us do this.
13.10.20 - Balanced Argument Writing
We worked hard to create a polished version of our balanced arguments of whether the public should be banned from visiting the Great Barrier Reef. Some were chosen to go on display in the corridor on the coral reef display.
3.10.20 - Balanced Argument
In English, we have been researching and finding out about the Great Barrier Reef and the coral bleaching it has suffered over the past decade. As part of our balanced argument writing, we had a class debate about whether the public should be banned from visiting the reef in order to protect it.
24.9.20 - Aboriginal dance
In PE, we have been learning all about the aboriginal style of dance and how it is a big part of their culture. We learnt about the music and types of movements linked to the stories they told. We created our own dances in groups over the term.
16.09.20 - Aboriginal drama
In English, we retold an Aboriginal story using drama. We planned it as a group and then decided how we wanted to show it. Each group performed a different story.
15.09.20 - Aboriginal oral storytelling
We drew story maps for an Aboriginal story of our choice, then retold the story orally in a traditional setting (complete with clapsticks!).
