Welcome to Year 5 and 6
'Golden Eagles' - Mrs Stephens' and Mrs Bootman's Class.
During the Spring term, we learned all about London and had a brilliant day visiting its sights. Have a look at our class Newsletter here to see what else we covered!
Autumn 2016 - Troubles & Tiaras, Tudor Times
This Term's Homework
Past Learning Topics
Find out more details and photos on our past learning topics by following this link.
This Summer we will be learning all about the English Civil War. The topic has a history bias, and we are fortunate that some of the pivotal battles happened in our area, so this really is local history! We will start the topic with an exciting visit from the Sealed Knot, who will give us as close to 'real life' experience of the time, as possible. Please see the newsletter below for more information.
Our Autumn Term was amazing, we learned all about Tudor times and had a brilliant visit to Sulgrave Manor with the children from Culworth Primary Academy.
Summer 2016 : It's The Olympics!
It was a Going for Gold term for this class! Our theme for our Summer Term was The Olympics. The photos below show sculptures made in Modroc. A year four pupil said "First we made a stick person out of pipe cleaners, beads and straws. We then got a box and covered it with ModRoc and left it to dry. We then attached the model on the box and started to cover the body up to the hips in Modroc. The next day we got tissue roll and covered the rest of the body including the head. Then we put ModRoc on top of the tissue. After it was dry we painted the model and made an Olympics athlete".
In Spring 2016, we all got Jungle Fever !
We had a stunning start to the term and our new topic Jungle Fever. We began by discovering where the rain-forests were in the world and then built our own forests working together with Year 2/3 and using shoe boxes to represent the different levels of the canopy.
We took our maps home to continue our explorations and turned our attention to Literacy and the study of Rudyard Kipling's most magical of stories The Jungle Book. We even had time to watch some of Disney's adaption of the story - they are very different!
We really enjoyed Jonathan's Jungle and getting hands on with all the animals and insets he brought along.
