YEAR 5

Moorhen

Welcome to Moorhen

Moorhen is one of our two year 5 classes taught by Miss Bullen. Did you know Miss Bullen loves baking, listening to music and was a competitive Irish Dancer for over 13 years?

THings to celebrate

 

 

• The Year 5s have settled well and had a positive start to a new school year!
• Miss Bullen and Miss Sheldrick have enjoyed getting back into the swing of things with their amazing classes!
• We have kicked off the year with some incredible learning and are loving the motivated and hard-working attitudes we are seeing.
• We are having a big focus on reading this term so please keep reading at least 3 times a week at home!

 

our learning

• We have really enjoyed working through a chapter book in English and are enthralled by the story of the Butterfly Lion.
• We have discovered some surprisingly talented gymnasts in our indoor PE sessions.
• We have enjoyed learning our new harvest songs ready for the harvest festival.
• In Maths we have been learning about Place Value and are moving onto Addition and Subtraction now.
• In Science, we are looking at studying living things and the importance of this. The Year 5s have really loved becoming scientific investigators, explorers and detectives.
• We have classes full of artists who have showed their creative side when sketching, tracing and completing some continuous line drawings.
• In Music (Miss Bullen’s favourite!), we are learning about the origins of Blues music and have loved getting to use the keyboards.
 

 

 

Our Big question

Autumn Term-Why should we protect the rainforest and our world?

What we thought……….
• There is lots of rain in the rainforest!
• They have lots of trees
• Many different species of animal live there
• They have a hot climate

What we wondered……
• How many species of animal live in the rainforest?
• How many rainforests exist in the world?
• How can we solve deforestation?
• What makes a living thing extinct?
• What are the different layers of a rainforest?
• Where do you find rainforests?

What we now know…………
