Class 5

Welcome to Class 5!

Class 5 have made a fantastic start to Year 2. The children have become wonderful role models as the oldest in the school and have settled in to our very busy timetable. Our independence is growing every day and we are becoming resilient in challenges that we face.

In Science this term we have been learning about habitats and microhabitats. We did an investigation to discover which environment a woodlouse would prefer. We chose two different microhabitats to create. We watched as the woodlice explored each and then settled in one. We found that woodlice prefer dark and damp places.

In Geography we have been learning and locating landmarks in Bath, especially the landmarks that our school house teams are named after. We also went on a walk around our local area, looking at the canal and Widcombe High street. We noticed all the different buildings in Widcombe, including shops, dentists, pubs, houses and churches. We enjoyed choosing a local business and then asking the shopkeeper questions to find out about their job.

In History, we have been learning about the Half Penny Bridge disaster. We enjoyed learning and retelling the events of the terrible disaster when the bridge broke, through drama and writing. To consolidate our learning, we went on a walk to visit the Half Penny Bridge. We walked over it and imagined how we would have felt if we were a visitor to the Bath and West Show on the day of the disaster. We enjoyed sketching a view of the Half Penny Bridge as it stands today.

As part of our Widcombe topic, we have studied the artistic designs often seen on canal boats. We had a go at creating our own canal art pictures. Firstly, we painted and then outlined our castles. Next, we decorated the borders using flowers. What a great job!

We love our Forest School sessions, where we get to learn about the environment around us. We enjoyed harvesting the fruit and vegetables that we planted last Spring. We love getting creative in the mud kitchen, exploring with water and discovering minibeasts. We have been learning about the life spans of different native animals and looking at their food chains.

Class Five are very eager readers and have been enjoying the wide range of chapter books that we can choose from. We have been using the blurb to decide which books we are most keen to read. We love any opportunities to go into the library and find out information from the nonfiction books in there. Reading is awesome!

We are very excited about everything new that we will learn this year and are looking forward to developing our skills in lots of different subjects.
