Class 5BD

A new half term is fast approaching!

We cannot believe that our first half term is over! Time certainly does fly when you are having fun... and learning lots! The children have started a new academic year in the best possible way and we are seeing what the children are capable of in all areas of the curriculum!

Over this half term we are especially proud of:

  • The Roald Dhal writing which has been produced after exploring ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ during Literacy lessons. The children have written newspaper reports poetry, diary entries and letters ensuring that they continuously work on their SMART and handwriting targets.
  • Participation of all the children during ‘Invasion Games’ in PE with BFC Coach, Beth. The children have developed skills for a range of ball passes in order to enable them the skills to play competitive games against each other. 

Creative Curriculum

This term our learning quest is … ‘How is our country changing?’  

Through our topic we will:

  • Name and locate counties and cities of the United Kingdom, geographical regions and their identifying human and physical characteristics, key topographical features (including hills, mountains, coasts and rivers)
  • Understand geographical similarities and differences through the study of human and physical geography of a region of the United Kingdom
  • Use the eight points of a compass, four and six-figure grid references, symbols and key (including the use of OS maps) to build their knowledge of the United Kingdom and the wider world
  • Use fieldwork to observe, measure, record and present the human and physical features in the local area using a range of methods, including sketch maps, plans and graphs, and digital technologies.
