Year 5 - St. Anthony
WELCOME TO YEAR 5
St Anthony's class
In Topic, we are learning about the Tudors this term. We had lots of fun making a Tudor rose and learning about how the houses of York and Lancaster joined together to form the Tudors.
Handwriter of the week!
Our children in school have created lovely pieces of artwork based on the Epiphany!
Remote Learning: In RE, we have been learning about the Jewish festival of Passover. We have learnt why Passover is celebrated, how it is celebrated through Seder and what is included on a Sedar plate. Furthermore, we have learnt about the importance of prayers and religious artefacts, such as the Shema and a Mezuzah, in Judaism.
In Maths, we have been learning about coordinates. We had lots of fun playing battleships!
In our Science lesson, we learnt about reversible and irreversible changes in materials. We conducted an experiment to see what irreversible and chemical changes would occur when we mixed milk, vinegar and bicarbonate of soda together. It created a new product, and was very smelly!
Our topic for the autumn term is Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. In Art, we learnt about Viking runes and by the end of the session we were able to write our own messages using it. We even played a game of Viking hangman!
In English, we will be studying King Kong by Anthony Browne this half term. At the beginning of our text, we discovered a crime scene outside our classroom! The children became detectives and began to question where the footprints came from, why they were there and who left them there.
In RE, our topic is Ourselves. We have been learning about how we are all special and important, as we are all children of God. In one of our lessons, we studied Genesis 1:26-31. We learnt that God created us all individually to take care of the world and each other. After, we created our own figurines and considered what qualities we would give to them.
In English, we have studied The Colour Monster by Anna Llenas. We learnt about our different emotions, why we might feel different things and how we can handle our emotions. The children have found this very useful for recognising and handling their own emotions, especially during this challenging time.
