Welcome to Class 5’s webpage

In class 5 there are 21 year 6’s and 6 year 5’s. Our teacher is Mr. Bryan and our assistant teacher is Mrs. Harrison.

In class 5 our topic is currently the FROZEN KINGDOM!

We are learning about the animals in the Antarctic environment and their adaptations and how they survive in such extreme conditions. Class 5 have been experimenting with how cold ice is in different materials such as: cloth, cold water, and a plain ice cube, salt was also used as well as other materials.

In maths we have been doing many different things including fractions, dividing and multiplying. Currently, we have been converting fractions!

In art, we are currently creating chalk drawings of the Northern lights. In the past, we have made Inuit art of Antarctic animals.

In geography and history, we have been learning about the islands in the Arctic circle and labeling the places and their names.  Also, class 5 have been learning about expeditions of Arctic explorers, especially Robert Falcon Scott!

 In PE, class 5 have started the topic football. Our PE lessons are on Monday afternoons and Friday afternoons one of which we have with Mr. Hackett and the other with Mr. Bryan! Class 5 is currently practicing dribbling the ball and tackling other players.

In class 5 we don’t just do work! On Friday afternoons we have GOLDEN TIME! This is where all of class 5 vote on a game or

activity to do for 20 minutes. Usually, class 5 decide to choose a sporty game like capture the flag!

New Topic!

Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands. Vast wilds and hostile territories; incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and the deepest chill. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or being pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs. Be alert, for magnificent mammals roam these lands, sometimes hungry or fresh for a fight. Perhaps a hungry polar bear or an Arctic fox is hunting rodents, as swift as the wind. Research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and ecosystems, and compose evocative poems about the Northern Lights. Become part of an Antarctic rescue team, braving the elements to rescue terrified passengers from a ship struck by a deadly iceberg that hides deep beneath the Southern Ocean. Wrap up well and settle by the fire. I’m just going outside and may be some time.
