Welcome back to Pine class page. Our class is made up of 9 year 5 children. We are situated in the quad. The adults in our class are Frances and Linda. The children are David, Cody, Jack, Kelsey, Tyreese, Adam, Chloe, Aliyah and Alfie.
We continue to be proud of how well the class have coped with all the changes, and are looking forward to a very productive New Year now that our team are back together.
We have included some pictures of things that took place just before Christmas and some of the recent photos of our Space art work. Please keep checking on here for updates as lots is happening.
This term our class topic is space which links into our science for the half term Earth and beyond. We will be investigating how astronauts get to space safely and how they spend their time on the international space station. We will be designing and creating our own rockets and looking into the food that astronauts eat. We will investigate about the solar system and the planets in it and try to answer the question, ‘why is Earth the only planet that has life on it?’ While we are learning about this we will also look the question of “Is there life on Mars?”
As a class will learn about the space race and the key people and countries involved. We will be using NASA’s website to explore space and research into British astronauts, including Major Tim Peake.
During maths we will be developing our multiplication and division strategies and written methods. We will also be learning how to work out fractions!
In English we will be exploring a wide range of genre including poetry, narrative in particular, Science Fiction.
As well as all of this we are lucky to have the pleasure of Berty the therapy dog, Yoga bug sessions and Dave the musician.
Any questions then please do not hesitate to contact us.
Frances and Linda
