Job Junction

We have started a programme called Job Junction. It involves lots of fun activities and encourages us to think about jobs and careers when we are older.  We will learn about:  qualities, skills, recognising our strengths and learning how we can develop. 

Professor Fluffy’s Visit 

We had a visit from Professor Fluffy and a student from the University of Liverpool. We were told all about university life and able to ask lots of questions. We learnt lots about university and thought about our futures.

Food From Around the World

For our DT and Geography week, we learnt about Greece. We tasted Greek food and also made and designed our own Greek dip.  We evaluated lots of products and then thought about our own design.  

Our Rainforest Dance

Working with Mrs Hardman, we created our own rainforest dance. We grew like trees and moved like animals.  We then performed our dance for Year 1/2.

Area and Perimeter

In our Maths lessons, we explored area and perimeter. One of our tasks involved designing a rabbit hutch that followed set rules.  We had to think carefully to ensure our hutch had the correct area, so our rabbits will be happy. 

History: World War One

2018 marks a hundred years since the end of the First World War. In class, we learnt all about World War One. We learnt about: the Home Front, the Western Front and the life of the soldiers.  Then we produced our own non-chronological reports all about the War, which you can see some examples of below.  We also created our own artwork, which examples of can also be viewed below. 

Science -Light 

For our light topic, we explored light and shadows. We even proved that light travels in a straight line! 💡💡

Planting Bulbs with Emmaus Merseyside 

We loved helping Emmaus Merseyside, planting lots of spring flowering bulbs. We can’t wait to see them grow! 🌷🌹

D.T. Week - Mindfulness

During DT week, we thought about the importance of looking after our mental health.  We practised relaxation techniques, including mindful breathing, yoga and focusing on our still, quiet place. The children were challenged to design and make bunting to hang in our classroom to remind us to be mindful.  They worked hard to produce beautiful cross stitch images.  Some of the children took part in the family home challenge and made fantastic cushions.

Career Opportunity Day

The children shared what they would like to be when they grow up. We had a classroom full of future: teachers,police officers, artists,sportsmen and sportswomen. The children also had a vist from the Police who told the children about their job. The Police also answered the children’s questions. Miss Jones and Miss Sullivan also shared how they became teachers and answered the children’s questions about university.

Air Quality

Sefton Council’s environmental education officers came to school to teach us about air quality.  We had a great day finding out about: what causes air pollution; how it is monitored and how we can help prevent air pollution.  We made pollution catchers and hung them outside, played games about air pollution and prepared a presentation to share with our parents. 

History - Slavery

We explored slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade and Liverpool’s part in this. The children engaged in this topic with enthusiasm, although they found some of the facts difficult to accept, wondering how people could treat others in this way.  We researched the topic using a variety of sources and imagined using drama how the journey would have been for the slaves leaving Africa.  We researched the Liverpool born merchant, James Penny, and compared his views to abolitionist William Wilberforce's. We then created a court case with William Wilberforce arguing to abolish slavery and James Penny arguing to keep it, with Judge Warrington presiding. As a class, we were happy that William Wilberforce won the case.

Art - African Art

During our Art lessons, we have been exploring African Art.  We recreated different artwork using different materials.

Music - Djembe Drums 

In Year Five, we have a drumming lesson every week.  We are really enjoying our lessons and are learning a lot! We have been practising: call and repsonse; copying the rhythm and learning about polyrhythms. 


Creation and Stewardship 

To work towards our Creation Award, we looked at our class and school rules and recorded how we could fulfill these. Working in a carasol we recorded our own ideas and reviewed each other’s. We then created a class job list that included jobs like paper monitor to ensure we are recycling in our class.We also now have a light monitor, who ensures that the classroom lights are switched off, when we leave the classroom. Finally, the children created a poster for each of our rules and how these can be followed to remind us and help teach others.

The Suitcase Kid by Jacqueline Wilson

Our first text of Year Five, was The Suitcase Kid. We all really enjoyed this text and completed lots of great writing and work  based on the it. For this text, we: explored the characters ; wrote a diary in role as Andy; wrote an agony letter; made predictions about what might happen next and even wrote our own next chapter.
