Swallows Year 5

Welcome to the Summer Term!

 

 

Welcome back to the second half of the Summer term - I hope you have all had a restful half term.  I have attached the medium term plan so that you can take a look at what is coming up during the next seven weeks.

 

I am really looking forward to this half term, we have lots of fun and interesting things coming up, watch this space for further information.

 

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to pop in, my door is always open.

 

Mrs McCall

 

Medium Term Plan - Summer 2

High Ropes 2017

 

What an amazing day we had at Altitude!  The children really challenged themselves, with many of them achieving much more than they thought they could.  I really am so very proud of them.

 

We started the day climbing up the totem pole, with many of the children (and teachers) making it all the way to the top, challenging themselves to stand on the top of the 'see-saw', before joining in with a game on heads shoulders knees and 'jump'!  Next we took to the low ropes to test our confidence before going up to the high ropes.

 

Finally, we took the 'leap of faith' jumping off from a platform - the highest point of the course.  I can assure you this was not for the feint hearted, we all left our stomachs at the top as we plunged towards the ground.

 

I was impressed with the way the children supported each other, there were cheers of 'you can do it' and 'I believe in you' from the ground as the less confident plucked up the courage to jump.  A really heartwarming experience.  

 

Well done Swallows, I was so impressed with you.  You took on the challenge... and succeeded!

Viking Day 2017

 

Swallows have had a lovely day discovering all things Viking.  We started the day welcoming each other and sharing our wonderful costumes.  We then headed into our Viking clans for the days activities.

 

We made Viking bread, brooches and pendants, shields and of course Viking 'Seagull Stew'.  In addition to this, we made garlic mushrooms and played Viking games.

 

We finished off our morning with a Viking feast, which was enjoyed by all.  With many of the children having a second serving (some even a third!).

 

In the afternoon we had to cancel our plans as the weather was too hot to go outside (us Vikings are used to cold weather you know!) so we had a quiet afternoon finishing off and thinking about the activities we had done in the morning.

Science and PE combined!

 

As part of our science this term, we asked ourselves the question "Do longer arms throw further?"

Mrs McCall predicted that the longer our arms were the further we would be able to throw a ball.  We talked about variables and decided a particular way we should throw the ball to ensure our test was fair.  We worked in teams, making recordings and working out the averages for our groups.  Next week we are going to put our results in graphs and tables and decide if Mrs McCall's prediction was true.

In small groups, we were given subjects to debate. We created proposition and opposition arguments and presented our debates to the whole class, we we then offered feedback on what went well and what we could do to improve next time

Safewise Trip

 

We have had an amazing day at Safewise today, learning about how to keep safe in a variety of situations, from crossing the road to knowing what to do in the event of a house fire.  We have some follow up work to do, so we will be talking about safety as an on-going theme in the classroom.

 

Please ask your children what they have learnt today, I am sure they will have lots of safety advice to give you!

The Creation Story

 

We have enjoyed exploring the creation story during our whole school focus week.  The children have acted out the story, created art work and on Tuesday looked at the beautiful patterns nature provides us with.  We looked at the work of Andy Goldsworthy and went outside to create our own art inspired by nature.  The results were beautiful and the children created their own image of the world from leaves and flowers.

This term our topic is Narnia! Please find a parent topic leaflet and medium term planning document below ,but this may change depending on other activities or events that happen throughout the term. Lots of exciting things to come through the spring term such as a visit to the secondary school library and world book day fun and games. We have also made bands and have started writing our own songs  - this has been done through singing strategy lessons (funded by SASMA) and we will also be taking part in Clayesmore's Choral day in February.
