Class 4 - Year 5 and 6

Welcome

Welcome to Class 4! We are really excited to be back after such a long break and having some normality back in our school lives. Since returning, we have been doing all kinds of fun things like eating in the dinner hall and having playtime all together on the huge school field - we have really missed these things! In our classroom we have our teacher, Miss Watkin - she's new to the school. But don't worry, we've been helping her settle in and given her a big Birstwith welcome! We also have our teaching assistant Mrs Paxton, who's there to help us when things get tricky. Mrs Paxton is a wonderful pianist and we have the pleasure of hearing her play for us throughout the week in our assemblies. So far, we have had a great time learning and exploring in our new classroom upstairs, where we take part in a variety of lessons and show off our strengths. We also love to work together as a team to solve problems and communicate regularly with Miss Watkin on ways we can make our classroom better. Now we are the oldest children in the school, we have been enjoying new responsibilities like jobs around the classroom and wider school environment, like handing out the Christmas cards and looking after the little ones. We hope you enjoy looking through our photos and coming along on our learning journey with us!

Hello! Miss Watkin here smileyWe like to keep our parents and carers informed of everything that goes on in our classroom and I as teacher like to have things the other way around too! If there is anything that you, your family or children need from me as a teacher or us as a school, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can do this through my work email address, by calling through to the school office or by speaking to us on the playground. You can also pop a note into your child's reading journal and we can pick these things up there too. I look forward to hearing from you!

Autumn Term 2021

Homework projects

This half term, our homework projects have been based on our class topic, called 'Mighty Myths and Legends'. We have been working really hard to make creative projects to share with the rest of the class. We have really been enjoying travelling back to different ancient civilisations like the Greeks, the Romans and the ancient Egyptians and learning about the way they saw the world. There's been Gods, monsters and creatures coming from every direction! The book 'Mythologica' by Steve Kershaw and Victoria Topping has been a great help to us in this topic and we have made lots of different artwork inspired by Victoria's work. Have a look through the photos below to see them!

Science

In our class, we love science! It lets us get up close and personal with the things that make up the world around us! We enjoy working together as part of team to plan experiments and investigate questions we have. Recently, we have been learning about the materials that make up our world - this has included topics on states of matter and properties of materials. We've been investigating with magnets, tested out particle theory and even planned a Y8 science lesson! We also had a special visit from Zoolab, who brought some brilliant animals for us to hold and learn about.

Spring Term 2021/22

Since Christmas, we've been really busy in Class 4. We've enjoyed learning about our new topics, and reading lots of new books. We've also had some special visitors, and we're going on a trip! You can read all about it below smiley

Topic (Spring 1)

In Spring 1, we've been learning all about the Roman invasion of Britain and the revolution of Boudicca, which took place not too far from us up north.  We've been thinking about how the invasion might have changed the lives of people living in Britain at the time, as well as how alot of these changes might have made them feel. We even took turns being the emperor and moving those pesky Celts wherever we saw fit! Below are also some photos of our brilliant Roman projects including a powerpoint from Izzy - complete with a homemade quiz!

The Y5/6 residential!

Bewteen the 9th-11th February, Class 4 got to go on an exciting outdoor adventure at East Barnby Outdoor Activitiy Centre. We stayed for two nights in their cabins and took part in all sorts of activites, like canoeing, climbing and ghyll scrambling. We also got to have a movie night and have sports games on their enormous field. It was pretty cold, we won't lie, but that didn't stop us! The sun came out to shine on our skiing and we spent cosy nights drinking hot chocolate and easting biscuits in the games rooms on an evening. We hope you enjoy looking through some of the brilliant pictures we took whilst we were there. 

Books we've been reading:

A visit from Sunita at The Indian Experience

In February, we had a great visit from Sunita, who is originally from India. She gave us a special assembly where she told us stories and taught us some Bollywood dance - it was great fun! Then, she came to Class 4 to teach us all about India - we even busted some myths and un-learned some things we thought we knew. It ws really interesting and we had lots of open discussion about what it's like to live in India - the photos below show us taking part in some of the activities Sunita had planned for us. 

Topic (Spring 2)

After the February half term, we got to choose our own topic - we picked WW2. We've been learning about the start of the war, and what it was like for different people living in Britain at the time. We've paired this with some ration-style cooking and baking, and trying some war-time sweets. At the start of April, we'll also be heading out on an exciting visit to Eden Camp WW2 museum to expand our knowledge and take part in some great workshops - more to come on that. We've really enjoyed engaging with this topic and have had lots of input from family members, including Miss Watkin's own grandparents, who were our age during the war. 

Eden Camp - 5th April 2022

To enhance our understanding of our WW2 topic, Class 4 went on a trip to Eden Camp Museum! There, we got to see lots of artefacts and listen to the stories of people who lived, fought and died during the war. We explored what the Blitz really did to London and navigated our way around a blacked-out street - we even dared to press the big red button in the German U-boat! We were also really excited to see a whole garage full of military vehicles and equipment - but Miss Watkin wouldn't let us get in the tank. She did let us have a go on the playground though! The museum also had lots of things to read, touch and smell as we explored the underground escape tunnels of POW camps and learned what it was like to be a woman in a conscribed job making bombs for the war effort. We came back with a much deeper understanding of the start of the war, as well as the impact that it had on people who lived through it and lost their loved ones to the fighting. 

Books we've been reading:

Summer 1

This half term is only a short one, but we've got loads to pack in! This half term we're starting a full term's project all about Vikings. We'll also be using our brightly coloured paints to print and paint images inspired by the Pop-Art movement and tie this into some portait work as well. In RE we'll be learning about humaism, and how this way of life can link in with some of the work we do as a C of E school. Science this half term is all about forces and we've got loads of experimenting to do. Come along with us as we head into our final term of the year! 

Trip to Ripon Cathedral

To support our Viking topic work, we visited Ripon Cathedral in May to see their Anglo-Saxon crypt and learn about the civilisation that joins the Romans and the Vikings together. We took part in three activites: dressing up to visit the crypt and learning all about what was kept down there, solving and writing Anglo-Saxon riddles and finally building an Anglo-Saxon crane! We discovered that actually, these ancient civilisations had a lotabout about them that we initially thought - we especially enjoyed building with the crane, only to destroy our archways by pulling down the scaffolding!

In February, we had a great visit from Sunita, who is originally from India. She gave us a special assembly where she told us stories and taught us some Bollywood dance - it was great fun! Then, she came to Class 4 to teach us all about India - we even busted some myths and un-learned some things we thought we knew. It ws really interesting and we had lots of open discussion about what it's like to live in India - the photos below show us taking part in some of the activities Sunita had planned for us. 

Topic (Spring 2)

After the February half term, we got to choose our own topic - we picked WW2. We've been learning about the start of the war, and what it was like for different people living in Britain at the time. We've paired this with some ration-style cooking and baking, and trying some war-time sweets. At the start of April, we'll also be heading out on an exciting visit to Eden Camp WW2 museum to expand our knowledge and take part in some great workshops - more to come on that. We've really enjoyed engaging with this topic and have had lots of input from family members, including Miss Watkin's own grandparents, who were our age during the war. 

Class 4 - Year 5 and 6

Welcome

Welcome to Class 4! We are really excited to be back after such a long break and having some normality back in our school lives. Since returning, we have been doing all kinds of fun things like eating in the dinner hall and having playtime all together on the huge school field - we have really missed these things! In our classroom we have our teacher, Miss Watkin - she's new to the school. But don't worry, we've been helping her settle in and given her a big Birstwith welcome! We also have our teaching assistant Mrs Paxton, who's there to help us when things get tricky. Mrs Paxton is a wonderful pianist and we have the pleasure of hearing her play for us throughout the week in our assemblies. So far, we have had a great time learning and exploring in our new classroom upstairs, where we take part in a variety of lessons and show off our strengths. We also love to work together as a team to solve problems and communicate regularly with Miss Watkin on ways we can make our classroom better. Now we are the oldest children in the school, we have been enjoying new responsibilities like jobs around the classroom and wider school environment, like handing out the Christmas cards and looking after the little ones. We hope you enjoy looking through our photos and coming along on our learning journey with us!

Homework Projects

Here are the interesting options for the homework projects we enjoy creating each half term.

Communications

Hello! Miss Watkin here smileyWe like to keep our parents and carers informed of everything that goes on in our classroom and I as teacher like to have things the other way around too! If there is anything that you, your family or children need from me as a teacher or us as a school, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can do this through my work email address, by calling through to the school office or by speaking to us on the playground. You can also pop a note into your child's reading journal and we can pick these things up there too. I look forward to hearing from you!

Autumn Term 2021

Homework projects

This half term, our homework projects have been based on our class topic, called 'Mighty Myths and Legends'. We have been working really hard to make creative projects to share with the rest of the class. We have really been enjoying travelling back to different ancient civilisations like the Greeks, the Romans and the ancient Egyptians and learning about the way they saw the world. There's been Gods, monsters and creatures coming from every direction! The book 'Mythologica' by Steve Kershaw and Victoria Topping has been a great help to us in this topic and we have made lots of different artwork inspired by Victoria's work. Have a look through the photos below to see them!

Science

In our class, we love science! It lets us get up close and personal with the things that make up the world around us! We enjoy working together as part of team to plan experiments and investigate questions we have. Recently, we have been learning about the materials that make up our world - this has included topics on states of matter and properties of materials. We've been investigating with magnets, tested out particle theory and even planned a Y8 science lesson! We also had a special visit from Zoolab, who brought some brilliant animals for us to hold and learn about. 

Spring Term 2021/22

Since Christmas, we've been really busy in Class 4. We've enjoyed learning about our new topics, and reading lots of new books. We've also had some special visitors, and we're going on a trip! You can read all about it below smiley

Topic (Spring 1)

In Spring 1, we've been learning all about the Roman invasion of Britain and the revolution of Boudicca, which took place not too far from us up north.  We've been thinking about how the invasion might have changed the lives of people living in Britain at the time, as well as how alot of these changes might have made them feel. We even took turns being the emperor and moving those pesky Celts wherever we saw fit! Below are also some photos of our brilliant Roman projects including a powerpoint from Izzy - complete with a homemade quiz!

In our classroom we have our teacher, Miss Watkin - she's new to the school. But don't worry, we've been helping her settle in and given her a big Birstwith welcome! We also have our teaching assistant Mrs Paxton, who's there to help us when things get tricky. Mrs Paxton is a wonderful pianist and we have the pleasure of hearing her play for us throughout the week in our assemblies. So far, we have had a great time learning and exploring in our new classroom upstairs, where we take part in a variety of lessons and show off our strengths. We also love to work together as a team to solve problems and communicate regularly with Miss Watkin on ways we can make our classroom better. Now we are the oldest children in the school, we have been enjoying new responsibilities like jobs around the classroom and wider school environment, like handing out the Christmas cards and looking after the little ones. We hope you enjoy looking through our photos and coming along on our learning journey with us!

Here are the interesting options for the homework projects we enjoy creating each half term.

Communications

Hello! Miss Watkin here smileyWe like to keep our parents and carers informed of everything that goes on in our classroom and I as teacher like to have things the other way around too! If there is anything that you, your family or children need from me as a teacher or us as a school, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can do this through my work email address, by calling through to the school office or by speaking to us on the playground. You can also pop a note into your child's reading journal and we can pick these things up there too. I look forward to hearing from you!

Autumn Term 2021

Homework projects

This half term, our homework projects have been based on our class topic, called 'Mighty Myths and Legends'. We have been working really hard to make creative projects to share with the rest of the class. We have really been enjoying travelling back to different ancient civilisations like the Greeks, the Romans and the ancient Egyptians and learning about the way they saw the world. There's been Gods, monsters and creatures coming from every direction! The book 'Mythologica' by Steve Kershaw and Victoria Topping has been a great help to us in this topic and we have made lots of different artwork inspired by Victoria's work. Have a look through the photos below to see them!

Science

In our class, we love science! It lets us get up close and personal with the things that make up the world around us! We enjoy working together as part of team to plan experiments and investigate questions we have. Recently, we have been learning about the materials that make up our world - this has included topics on states of matter and properties of materials. We've been investigating with magnets, tested out particle theory and even planned a Y8 science lesson! We also had a special visit from Zoolab, who brought some brilliant animals for us to hold and learn about. 

Spring Term 2021/22

Since Christmas, we've been really busy in Class 4. We've enjoyed learning about our new topics, and reading lots of new books. We've also had some special visitors, and we're going on a trip! You can read all about it below smiley

Topic (Spring 1)

In Spring 1, we've been learning all about the Roman invasion of Britain and the revolution of Boudicca, which took place not too far from us up north.  We've been thinking about how the invasion might have changed the lives of people living in Britain at the time, as well as how alot of these changes might have made them feel. We even took turns being the emperor and moving those pesky Celts wherever we saw fit! Below are also some photos of our brilliant Roman projects including a powerpoint from Izzy - complete with a homemade quiz!

A visit from Sunita at The Indian Experience

In February, we had a great visit from Sunita, who is originally from India. She gave us a special assembly where she told us stories and taught us some Bollywood dance - it was great fun! Then, she came to Class 4 to teach us all about India - we even busted some myths and un-learned some things we thought we knew. It ws really interesting and we had lots of open discussion about what it's like to live in India - the photos below show us taking part in some of the activities Sunita had planned for us. 

Topic (Spring 2)

After the February half term, we got to choose our own topic - we picked WW2. We've been learning about the start of the war, and what it was like for different people living in Britain at the time. We've paired this with some ration-style cooking and baking, and trying some war-time sweets. At the start of April, we'll also be heading out on an exciting visit to Eden Camp WW2 museum to expand our knowledge and take part in some great workshops - more to come on that. We've really enjoyed engaging with this topic and have had lots of input from family members, including Miss Watkin's own grandparents, who were our age during the war.
