In our class we have some Year 4 children and some Year 5 children. Our class teacher is Mr Gyllenspetz. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Heath and Mrs Andrew. As we are amongst the older children, we are expected to set a great example to the rest of the school and to start to pick up responsibilities around the school.
Our theme for learning this term is Traffic. We are doing traffic surveys, work on climate change, traffic safety and using our iPads to make presentations on these matters.
Our themes for learning last term were centred on the subject of Bread. We made various types of bread and ran surveys, canvassing other people of what kind of sandwiches they would like. We investigated the best temperature for yeast to grow when using it as a raising agent in bread and really enjoyed our research into the history of bread.
Science experiment on separating substances.
Leap of Faith – at our residential trip
We are very proud to be Recycling Heroes in our school – we empty the paper recycling bins in the school every day. Using data handling, we were able to show that the amount of rubbish we sent to landfill was much less once we started doing this.
