Cedar Class Year 5 Term 3


This term has flown by as we have enjoyed a closely interwoven English and Science topic; learning about the many perils and challenges of Shackleton’s Antarctic expedition aboard the Endurance, while studying changing materials and how to construct a sound science investigation. We have had a lot of fun exploring new scientific concepts in a meaningful context, as we were able to link everything we learnt to the experience of the crew on the expedition.
In mathematics, we have been learning about fractions and honing our reasoning skills.
In RE, we visited the New Room, founded by John Wesley, father of Methodism, in the heart of Bristol. It was very special, as we have studied his life and teachings closely this year.
In Art, we created atmospheric Antarctic landscape collages, and we have also made watercolour drawings of our impressions of the New Room.

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!
