T5 and 6 Journeys curriculum plan

John - James took these incredible photographs. We think our world is amazing and beautiful!

Colerne Wildlife Club are raising awareness of  the swift because some species of swifts are becoming endangered .

There was a moment of awe and wonder in our class when we found out that the swift can fly non stop for as  long as three to four years. They can spend the maximum portion of their life while flying.They only land at the time of nesting. We thought this was incredible. We also thought that they were beautiful birds with their forked tail and boomerang-shaped long swept-back wings  - what amazing creatures! We drew zentangle swifts and wrote poems to make others aware of what is happening to these beautiful birds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

             

Our  theme for the Spring term is 'Space'.

We have looked at many images of space and we agree that they are all beautiful. Looking at the images has made us ask lots of questions about its beauty.

One of our talented children in Year 5 took photographs of the beautiful view from our classroom window early one morning. The sunrise was so stunning I said 'Wow' very loudly!

We often take time to appreciate our surroundings. Look how beautiful it is! Sketching the view of our village, enjoying the sun on our faces, and appreciating the peacefulness of our surroundings is very special.

As I looked out my classroom window I could see this amazing sunrise. The light was beautiful!

We share information and images of your children via Seesaw so we encourage you to download the app and you will be able to see activities, photos and videos when they are uploaded. It is a lovely way to share the wonderful work your children do.

 

 

 

 

PE will take place on  Tuesdays and Thursdays . On these days please come into school wearing your PE kit  - you will not need to bring in a PE bag! Please make sure you are wearing the appropriate school  kit: white top, black shorts/jogging bottoms and trainers.Our sports coach, Mr Kingwell, teaches the Thursday afternoon session. 

Please  bring your reading books to school everyday. You have been tasked with reading for ten minutes each day at home to promote a love of reading. Please make sure you write a comment in your reading record book as I look at these each week to see how your reading at home is progressing. You will also have an 'Author's Journal' to collect ambitious vocabulary to use when writing in class. These need to be in school everyday.

 

 

 

Star of the Week will be awarded on a Friday - what a lovely way to appreciate our shining lights! The following Friday the superstar has the opportunity to do a talk about themselves - it could be bringing in things to show, a PowerPoint presentation, sharing photographs, talking about themselves etc. It is a lovely way for you to shine!


 

 

 

For Term 1 your home learning is to read your reading books and to practise your spellings on a daily basis.

This will be given to you on a Thursday to be completed and returned by the following Monday.

 

Spellings are sent home each week. Spelling books need to be in school everyday. You will have a spelling test on a Friday. The statutory word lists below are all the spellings Year 5/6 are expected to spell correctly by the end of Year 6 .
