The fun activities have continued this week, with Year 5 designing their own super hero that has special powers to deal with all the unacceptable bullying that goes on in the world. They came up with some super ideas and were able to demonstrate their creative side.
Today Year 5 took part in a workshop delivered by the NSPCC. They learnt all about the importance of speaking out to protect themselves from harm. They were informed about the organisation called Childline,
that is available to them if they ever need to talk to someone about anything that is worrying them. They learnt all about the various forms of abuse and we’re extremely grown up with their responses.. well done year 5!
We’ve been working really hard in Year 5 on our spellings. The children have been taking part in investigations to put words into groups according to their sounds such as: tough, drought and although. They all contain the “ough” sound yet all sound different. It’s a challenge but they’re Not giving up.
Year 5 have been researching different places in the world in order to highlight their differences and similarities. They are going to use their research to produce a poster all about the interesting facts they have recorded.
As part of Bells Farm’s PSHE policy, Year 5 have devised a class charter outlining the rights of children.
The children came up with their own suggestions and a list of rights were drawn up. We then came up with ways the teaching staff in Year 5 could support these rights and Miss Dainter, the children and myself all signed to say we agreed. It’s now up on wall for us all to follow.
Ask them to show you their signature…they enjoyed practising those.
Year 5 are thoroughly enjoying their Art topic this term – creating country scenes. They have created different shades of Autumn colours, practised 3D effects and had a go at drawing trees by studying them out on the field.
Year 5 discussed being part of the school community and having a voice.
They thought about the things they might like to improve in the school in terms of its grounds and facilities.
They then devised appropriate questions that they could put to the school to gain an idea of what they thought.
This proved to be harder than they first thought. If the question was not specific enough the results would not help them to move forward with their ideas.
The class then decided on one idea to put forward to Mrs Butterworth and wrote her a letter…they will deliver it to her today. Let’s see what she says..
