peace Class - Year 5
Mrs McSloy & Mrs RAYNER
As a class, we are very enthusiastic and enjoy learning and discovering new things.
Currently our topic is, "Exceptional Egyptians". Last term our topic was called 'Scream Machine - Can you feel the force?'. We had a great time at Legoland and enjoyed carrying out various scientific investigations to explore the effect of forces upon different objects. We designed and made models of our own theme park rides and tested whether they were substantial enough to get to the bottom of our specially designed track!
We are continuing to develop our learning skills to become more independent and resilient in our learning. This includes using the 3B4ME approach, where we take three steps before asking an adult for help:
1)Brain - we think a bit harder and think through previous learning to see if that can support us.
2) Book/blocks - we make sensible choices about resources in the classroom that may help us.
3)Buddy - we ask a buddy to help to explain the concept that we are stuck on.
Our topics for the year are:
Terms 1 & 2: Scream Machine – Can you feel the force?
Term 3: Exceptional Egyptians
Term 4: Inspiring Italy
Term 5: Classified! The Circle of Life.
Term 6: The Time Machine
