Our Dreams and their meanings by Class Tolkien
Our Dreams and their meanings by Class Tolkien

Have you noticed that your dreams have been a little strange during lock down? Well Class Tolkien certainly have!

For over a week now we have been keeping a diary of our dreams and 'tweeting' them to our google classroom page. Our task was to each create a blog that included some creative elements such as photographs, perhaps some artwork or maybe a piece of music that would represent our dreams, and obviously class Tolkien rose to the challenge!

Take a look at this brilliant presentation created by one of our pupils who really went the extra mile (pun intended).

 

 

Class Tolkien works hard from home to remember VE Day!

Please watch this PowerPoint which includes a selection of work from our wonderful children in year 5. We are all incredibly proud of each and every one of them.

A great free app for you to try

Guardians of Ancora is a wonderful free game for children to download and play. It is based on Bible stories and includes lots of elements that children will love, where they can run, jump and explore as a character from the Bible, play exciting quizzes and watch and listen to Bible stories. 

It is suitable for both Apple and Android tablets or smartphones, and you can find more about it here: https://guardiansofancora.com/

Spring 1 Tolkien 2020

Spring 2 Tolkien 2020

 

War Poetry

The class were working hard on annotating the war poem Anthem for Doomed Youth by Wilfred Owen. They were working out the meaning of each line so they could understand the poem better! They worked hard on Flanders Field earlier in the week also! The focus on these lessons have been amazing!

 

First Jigsaw Lesson

The class really enjoyed their first Jigsaw (PSHE) lesson today. Focusing on how cultural differences can sometimes cause conflict and racism. The children were great and had some amazing responses, they enjoyed using Jez and Jerrie the cat.‬

  

Handwriting fantastic!

We are working extremely hard to improve our handwriting in all subjects. We wonder who will be the first to get a pen license!

 

The Christmas Truce

This morning in our English lesson we acted out the Christmas Truce so we could start to see how it would have been for the soldiers in WW1 and how they may have felt. 

                           

Remembrance Display

For the half term homework the children were asked to design something for our remembrance display. We were amazed with the pieces the children brought in. Here are a few of them. We can't wait for the rest to be returned so we can complete our display in our cloakroom.

   

Harvest Time

We have been working extremely hard this week on our piece of Harvest work that we will be presenting at the church service on Friday 25th October! We do hope you enjoy them and appreciate all the time and effort we have put into our poems.

   

Our Solar System

We are learning about 'Our Solar System' in science and today we have been learning about three of histories astronomers - what they believed the Universe was like amazed us all - some of the theories made us laugh - ask us what we have learnt. You might be amazed yourself! 

  

Staying Safe online

We have been learning about our online identities - what we should share and what we should keep private. We've discussed the dangers of sharing too much information online, befriending people we don't actually know and how we can have fun online but stay safe at the same time. The class are working hard on their own internet safety booklets for others to use. Great work Tolkien!

 

Team building in Tolkien

Class Tolkien have been working hard on improving their teamwork skills, so in PE Mr Modest has being setting the class tasks to do in teams. The amount of encouragement and support the children are starting to give one another is wonderful to see. Class Tolkien are really making Mrs Waterhouse and Miss Weldon very proud.  

Maths Challenge

Our Maths group in Tolkien have being challenging each other to a 6 times table shoot out. The children are getting better each day we do this. Challenge them if you dare!!!

 

CRIME AND PUNISHMENT

Class Tolkien have been working hard in our History lessons learning all about Crime and Punishment. They have been focusing on how criminals were punished 800 years ago!! See if they can tell you how women were treated if they were suspected of being a witch and why they were punished the way they were.

  

A FANTASTIC START!

Well done to all of the children in Class Tolkien everyone has settled in well and are working really hard for Mrs. Waterhouse and Miss. Weldon. We are working on our class focus of kindness and respect for each other. We hope to be super stars at staying Evergreen this year.

Our favourite books and authors…

This week in Year 5 we have been discussing our favourite books and authors. We have looked at lots of different genres and spoken about which are our favourite and why. Some children completed a book review for their favourite book for our ‘Recommendation Wall’, myself and Miss Tate have put up our recommendations too. These will be changed each half term so that the children can use it to help them when choosing a new book and perhaps persuade them to try out a different genre. We are also building a class book tower to see how many books we read collectively over the year. We are hoping to reach the ceiling soon!   

Viking artefacts

On Friday 12th October Year 5 had a Visit from Mr Wike who brought in lots of  Viking artefacts in. He showed us many different things like the armour and weapons Vikings would have used and what they would have used to cook and eat their meals. The children were able to try on the different clothes and armour and handle many of the different artefacts. The children had lots of questions that they wanted to ask Mr Wike and he was able to answer them. We learned lots of new facts about the Vikings. A big thank you to Mr Wike for visiting our class.  

Viking Coins

This week in art we have been sketching Viking Coins. We were lucky enough to have some Viking coins brought into school so that we could look at the coins closely and feel them. We were very surprised by how light and thin the coins were compared to our coins today. The coins were used to help us to capture the fine detail of the coins when sketching.

Here are some of our sketches.

 

 

Welcome to Class LH

Welcome to Year 5.

I am really excited to be your child’s class teacher and part of Brierley Church of England School.

As your child moves into upper Key Stage 2, we will be focusing on developing the exceptional skills which they have already acquired, with a particular focus on their independence; developing them into mature and confident learners.

Our Christian Values will continue to be focus throughout the year and will underpin all we do in Year 5.

The Year 5 team includes Miss Harker (class teacher) and  Miss Tate (support staff) 

We are all more than happy to help you and your child so please feel free contact anyone of us at any time in order for us to provide you with as much support as possible.

We have had a fantastic and positive start to the year so far, the children have really impressed me with not only their Maths and Literacy skills but also with their level of maturity and teamwork in the classroom.

We made a great start with our topic this week and we will be exploring and finding out more interesting facts about Vikings next week.  

PE will be on Mondays and Thursdays this year.

Supporting your child with completing homework each week and also reading regularly will really help with their development and ensure they are on track for Year 5.

Thank you for all your support,

Miss Harker
Class Teacher
