Our Mission Statement
Class 5P are like one big, happy family! We come to school on time and attend every day. Our class is kind, patient and helpful. We always treat other people like we want to be treated. We take responsibility for our learning and always do our best. We look after our classroom and our resources. We like to have fun, but know when to stop.
Trip to the Yorkshire Museum
As part of our Science topic on Evolution and Inheritance, we learned all about the work of Charles Darwin. We went on a trip to The Yorkshire Museum with the children in 5/6M and 6R and we all had a super day! We took part in a workshop with an actor playing the part of Charles Darwin and we learned lots of new things. We looked at some stuffed animals and fossils and even saw some dinosaur fossils in one of the galleries. It was a great day out.
We had a brilliant time during Science Week! In the mornings, we did work on our Evolution and Inheritance topic, and in the afternoons we did lots of fun experiments. We made a bag explode using a chemical reaction; made a coke can move across the table using only a balloon (by creating static electricity) and we made miniature hovercrafts using CDs, balloons and bottle tops. We also took part in a Sublime Science workshop where we got to see all sorts of cool science experiments and made our own slime.
As part of Science Week, we did some gardening and planting in the allotment and we created a Spiritual Garden alongside Classes 5/6M and 6R. We made a rainbow wind chime using sticks and some hanging stars using twigs and garden twine – they look fantastic and we’re really proud of our finished garden.
World Book Day
We all came dressed up as our favourite book characters for World Book Day. We had characters from a variety of books in our class – Matilda, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, and 101 Dalmatians to name a few!
In January we became designers and created a new pair of slippers after looking at lots of different examples! We learnt some simple stitches to join fabrics together. With our adult helpers we worked really hard to make our designs into a real pair of slippers! Thank you to everyone who helped. It was hard work but we had fun and ended up with some fantastic results.
World War 1 Workshop
We had a workshop about World War One in November. We were told about life as a stretcher bearer in the war. We found out what life was like for the soldiers and had a go at marching and wearing the kit!
Maths Inspire Morning
We used what we learnt in Maths Week about making 3D shapes to help us create some 3D Rainforest creatures. Our adults were a great help and our finished creatures were amazing!
