Any parents or students who have any concerns or questions, please contact Miss Hyde: class5@brynoffa.shropshire.sch.uk

Children in Need 2021

This year, for Children in Need, the children dressed up as what they want to be when they grow up. In the afternoon, we found out about the history of Children in Need and why it is important. Can you spot one of the children in the second photo?

Double Page Spread on Llandudno or Barmouth

Over the last week, the children have researched a coastal town – either Barmouth or Llandudno. They have then used their research and amazing writing skills to create the creative double page spreads below. I was amazed by the work the children created – you should all be incredibly proud of yourselves. I have included a few of the pieces of work below.

Home Learning from Monday 27th September

Hi wonderful Class 5,

As so many of you have now returned to school, home learning will no longer be posted on here. Instead, it will be emailed to you directly for you to complete if you are feeling well enough. Miss Hughes and I are looking forward to the whole class being reunited again as we have missed you all.

Miss Hyde 🙂

Science – Monday 27th September

RE

This term, we will be learning about Hinduism.

Hinduism is a diverse religion. Some Hindus believe they are monotheistic (believe in 1 God), whilst some say they are polytheistic (believe in many gods). The Hindu word for God is Brahman. Vishnu, Shiva, Ganesha and the other Hindu deities each symbolise an aspect of Brahman (God). Therefore, some Hindus believe they just have 1 god.

During our Hinduism unit we will come across lots of interesting vocabulary so I would like you to create a Hindu glossary by finding out what these different terms mean:

  • atman,
  • Brahman,
  • dharma,
  • karma,
  • moksha,
  • ahimsa
  • samsara

Science – Earth and Space

Scientists answer their questions using a variety of enquiry types, such as: pattern seeking, fair tests, observations over time and comparative tests. Today, we will be carrying out a pattern seeking enquiry to answer the question: Is there a pattern between the size of a planet and the time it takes to travel around the Sun?

The time taken for a planet to travel around the Sun is known as the revolution period. Please research online to fill out the table below.

Now you have completed the table, I would like you to create a conclusion which answers our question. Do you think there is a link between the planet’s size and the time it takes to travel around the Sun? Are there some planets which do not follow the same pattern as the rest?

Optional Challenge: Create a line graph on paper or on Excel to show the results you have found. This should help you write your conclusion.
