Kara's and Annie's Class
Welcome to our class page. We are made up of a mixture of hard working year 5 and year six girls and boys. The adults in our class are Annie, Kara, Joanna and Merek. Our classroom is situated in the Quad part of the school.
We have had a great first half term and enjoyed learning about the different seasons and going on autumn walks. We have developed our knowledge on geographical features and our topic about Australia. The children have designed and made their own aboriginal didgeridoos and we are looking forward to our new design project of aboriginal toys.
We have been lucky enough to have weekly visits from Bertie, the therapy dog and we have all enjoyed getting to know him.
In our English lessons we have been focusing on your sentence formation and structure. The children have made great progress and we have been writing our own short stories about our fictional characters.
As part of our maths work we have developed our understanding of on the days of the months and the months in a year. We have also been developing our knowledge of our 2 and 5 times tables. We have looked at 2D and 3D shapes and begun to identify their different properties using the correct vocabulary.
During the last seven weeks we have looked at the four seasons, in particular looking at autumn and the sights, sounds and smells that are associated with it. We kept a close watch on the weather each day and will continue to do this as we move into winter.
Next term we will be continuing our topic on Australia.
We have two trips booked next half term, one to the library to experience an ‘Introduction to Libraries’ workshop and one to the Snowdome to experience real snow and bring to a close our work on weather and seasons.
