Spring 2023 – Debating

This week, we held another debate. This time about deforestation, which linked to our geography and PSHE topics. The children will then use this information to write their own balanced argument about whether deforestation should be made illegal.

This week in Class 5, we have debating whether KS2 SATS should be banned or not. We followed some formal rules and had an opposition team, a proposition team, a timekeeper, a chairperson and some floor speakers.

Autumn 2022 – Frame Structure project

The children began by learning how to saw safely and different ways we can join wood. We found that using a glue gun to attach the pieces of wood and then using PVA to attach card triangles was the strongest option for us to use in a primary school.

Next, the children designed a frame structure, which was a model of a toy market stall for Class 1 children to play with. Here are some pictures of them making their structure and the finished products.

Christmas 2022 – Father Christmas’ visit

Class 5 met a special visitor in the hall on Wednesday. He was kind enough to give each child a tube of fruit pastels as he had heard they had all been good this year.

Christmas 2022 – Bryn Offa Evening News

Class 5 performed ‘Bryn Offa Evening News’ to their family and friends this week. They performed exceptionally well and made me extremely proud.

Autumn 2022 – Focussed Task for pneumatics

The children have really enjoyed their work on pneumatics so far. They have created their own moving creature following instructions as part of a focussed task. The children have learnt that pressing the syringe (input) allows the compressed air to be pushed down the tube and move the plunger of the other syringe. The output is the creature’s mouth opening. They have begun to think of improvements for their monster and used this information to help design their own moving creature.

Autumn 2022 – Poetry based on Holes

In English, we have been reading the amazing story Holes by Louis Sachar. The children have worked in groups to create their own freeverse poem based on Camp Green Lake, which they then performed to the class. The children spoke clearly and confidently, with wonderful expression. Every group decided to incorporate actions into their performance too.

Autumn 2022 – The Nightmare Man

In English, we have learnt a Talk for Writing story called ‘the Nightmare Man’. The children have improved the original story and will be creating their own version of a ‘Facing your Fears’ story this week. Their writing is already at such a high standard for this time of year – I am incredibly impressed.

Autumn 2022 – Parent Presentation

This presentation includes the key information for Class 5 this year.

Autumn 2022 – Arthog

Summer 2022 – Design & Technology – Cheese Scones

Class 4 and 5 have completed a joint D&T project this week. They have been making, designing and evaluating cheese scones. The children practised making a variety of cheese scones with Mrs Hartland and Miss Hughes before designing and making their own. Mr Jones was really impressed with their skills when he made their designs with them. The children also spent time with Miss Hyde researching how flour is produced and writing their own recipes.
