Throughout the year the children are guided through a series of Learning Adventures. Below is a review of the last Learning Adventure with some associated photos, ENJOY!
Autumn Term 1 - Earth, Space & The Universe Blog
What a start to our New Year, we are so proud of the way Pine class has returned to Pilgrims' Cross and the confidence they have shown with the new year 5 curriculum!
This term in English we have enjoyed writing incredible Star Wars action narratives (they were epic!) and have begun creating our own planetary guide to the Universe! As part of our International Space Week detour we explored the reasons for and against space exploration and wrote persuasive letters to Sam Gymiah MP, minister for Universities, Science, Research and Innovation.
In Maths we have been working on place value and problem solving with addition and subtraction to create some amazing planetary guides for the classroom and solving problems from the International space station! The whole class has been working really hard on using the formal written methods for calculating and organising their work clearly!
Year 5 Science was started with our ‘wow’ rocket launch and the pupils have been astounding me with their own research on our solar system. We have learned about the phases of the moon and the reason for day and night on earth! In music, we have been listening to and reflecting upon the work of Gustav Holst (The Planet Suit).
In RE, pupils have worked incredibly well on the theme of ‘Belief through Creation and Fall' exploring Christian beliefs and Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution.
We can't wait to continue this adventure next term!
Thank you for your continued support with homework and reading, it is greatly appreciated by us all.
Mr Rouse and Mrs Lucas.
