What's Great about the Great Outdoors?

As part of our topic we have been exploring the school grounds. It helps our mental health to take a break from sitting at the table and just taking in all the sights and sounds within the grounds. We drew pictures and stopped to listen to the birds singing.

What would you castle look like?

In this topic we have been learning why people made castles. We have also looked at castle life and some of the people who worked there. We especially took time to investigate Bolsover Castle which is close by to us.

Here are some of our own castles that we have made.

In PE this term we have been practising our football skills.

Pyjamarama Day

We have dressed up to raise money for people who cannot afford to buy books.

What Makes Space Special?

During our topic about space we have developed fact files about famous astronauts including Helen Sharman who lived locally.

Here are just a few of our space vehicles.

How do we live here?

This term we are going to explore the hot and cold places across the globe. We will learn all about the amazing animals that live in those places and how they adapt in order to survive there.

Here are some of class 5"s work about animal adaptations

We have used the computer to down load pictures of animals and record our ideas

We are concerned with the conservation of the habitats where these animals live and how we can protect them.

Some of class 5's art work about the Northern lights.

Our mental health is very important to us at this time, as we haven't been able to see our friends. We have been doing some work and relaxation techniques to help us.

Here are some of our science experiments to do with ice and lard.

Our new Topic is 'How Incredible is India?'

We would love for you to research India at home too and share information you have learnt back at school!

Class 5 PE day is Wednesday.

Children can come to school in their PE kit on Wednesdays. PE kit is a white T-shirt, black jogging bottoms and a pair of trainers. Children will also need their school jumper.

We have fun painting using different brushes and techniques.
This is what we like to do in 'Golden Time'.
