Orange Class (Year 5)

Welcome to the Orange Class (Year 5) page!

Welcome to Orange class. In the morning 16 year 5 children are taught by Mrs Gibbs and in the afternoon 9 year 4 children join them.

In year 5 we are very responsible. We look after each other and our classroom by taking on classroom responsibilities.

We are all stars in this class! Our class display reminds us of the rules we decided on at the start of the term.

In literacy we have been reading a story from another culture – The Dragon Slayer and writing new episodes. In maths we have been learning about angles – acute, obtuse and reflex and finding missing angles in straight lines and full turns. We have started our topic on the Stone Age and used materials in the outdoors to create our own settlements / shelters.

Prayer is an important part of our day. We have written a lunch time prayer and a prayer for the end of the day. We also have a display to show the school prayer, Lord’s Prayer and our worship words.

Our maths working wall reminds us about all the different strategies we can use in maths.

We love reading in year 5. Look at our cosy book corner. We record all the books that we have been reading on our reading ladders.

We have had a great start to the Autumn term. It started with our Roald Dahl week when we explored the story of Danny Champion Of The World. Danny lived in a gypsy caravan with his father. We particularly enjoyed making models of gypsy caravans in groups.

Orange class have created a display on the value for this half term which is love.

In Science we have been looking at the topic of Space including the planets, day and night and international time zones.

In our topic on the Romans we have looked at Roman invasions and Roman Roads.
