Year Five - King Smith and Walliams

Spring One Update 


This term, our Year 5 topic focus was on  the Great Plague which we thoroughly enjoyed learning about! We enjoyed sourcing information about it as well as considering what our personal experiences would be like around the era of the Great Plague.

In English, we enjoyed exploring the texts ‘Boy in the Tower’ and ‘The Watertower’.  We loved experimenting with mystery and suspense techniques in our writing. With this, we were able to use them to write our own chapter for the book,  create a newspaper related to the book and write a diary entry from another character’s perspective.

In P.E., we explored how to bat and field in Cricket as well as how to work effectively with others around us. Through sport, we have worked more effectively in teams and we have been able to implement this in the classroom! 

This term, in Art, we researched the famous artist  Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn  who was well known for his self-portraits and detailed paintings. We then had a go at drawing Rembrandt and trying to draw others around us!

5 King-smith’s thoroughly enjoyed learning about Hannukah, Passover and Easter as religious celebrations this term. 5 Walliams thoroughly enjoyed learning the weather in French and also learning a song in French called ‘Quel temps fait-il?’.  We look forward to next term and what this entails!
We have spent time learning about the weather in French and creating our own weather reports. We have been very lucky this term to have somebody come from outside to teach us cricket. We also enjoyed meeting the major and creating our own class assembly.
