Cedar Class Year 5 Term 2 2019

This term has been such a treat. We really enjoyed a visit from engineers from Atkins Engineering, learning about electrical circuitry and design, making fun fan boats to race in a temporary pool in the playground. We have also loved working with a group of dance and drama facilitators every Friday, exploring topics such as belonging, inclusivity and community building. Our creativity has blossomed! In English, we have been amazed, disturbed and excited in equal measure during our topic about Hurricane Katrina, culminating in some beautiful poetry.

Cedar class – Year 5 Term 4 2019

This certainly has been a term to remember! We have enjoyed a mind-blowing Art & Maths week, during which we learnt to use traditional draftsman skills to create one point perspective drawings, and mono prints inspired by our class novel, Skellig. We enjoyed a parkour session at Cotham School, and learnt to negotiate an obstacle course with special rolls, falls and jumps. We have been enjoying bread-making each Friday, along with board games sessions, when we learn new board games from all over the world, and find new ways of enjoying each other’s company!

YEAR 5 TERM 2 2018/19

Term 2 has flown by; we launched a challenging Geography topic comparing Bristol to the American city of New Orleans, learning about the city through the lens of the stunning graphic novel “Drowned City -New Orleans and Hurricane Katrina” by Don Brown. We developed this topic last year, and it has since been adopted by other schools in the area. Not only have we learnt about the geographical features of another city, but also about its social landscape and the dilemmas and choices which present themselves in a crisis. We have learnt to cook New Orleans praline, familiarised ourselves with the roots of jazz, and explored the art of Willie Birch.

We enjoyed a trip to the cinema as part of the IntoFilm Festival, a morning of planting birch, willow and holly trees for the National Trust in beautiful woodland at the Mojo Active site in Almondsbury, as well as a carol singing excursion into Cabot Circus, raising £123 for Ronald McDonald House charity. It has been a busy seven weeks!
