Class Teacher - Mrs Jones
I hope you’ve all had a fun Christmas break and the children are raring to get back to a busy, exciting calendar. I will keep you up to date with everything going on in class 11 this half term - see below for new photos and information.
During our RE day, year five looked at different values and beliefs in Christianity. Class 11 learnt about the different branches in Christianity (denominations) and compared acts of worship. Further to our discussions, we noted down our personal beliefs and shared them with each other.
Year 5 have had a busy few weeks learning new dance routines with our coach from Sandersons. We’re hoping to showcase some of these routines to Mrs Stowell and ‘wow’ her with our moves.
Mrs Jones's English group played a game of Pok-a-Tok (Maya ball game) before writing a set of instructions. They certainly had lots of fun playing, but came to the conclusion that the game was extremely difficult - the instructions would need to be clear and detailed. The final written outcome was fantastic and the children were very proud of their leaflets.
Children in class 11 are now being challenged to deliver a class warm-up, including; static stretches, dynamic stretches and group led skills. It's been lovely to see so many getting involved and their confidence growing. Alongside learning new vocabulary for PE, we have learnt how to work effectively in teams and apply attacking and defending skills in games.
During our PE lessons, we have been working in different teams with our friends. The problem-based learning has allowed us to communicate with others and work with different people. We’ve really enjoyed the challenges over the past four weeks.
During ICT, we have been learning new vocabulary including the words output, program and objects. We have been designing our own story through the events, output and actions that our objects complete. We’ve had lots of fun working in partners and individually. We enjoyed sharing and presenting our stories to each other in class.
