Term 3 in P5/6W

Hello everyone,

We are now rapidly approaching the end of term and Easter Holidays! It has been a very fun and enjoyable term in P5/6W!

Since our last post, we have been finishing off our African Savannah topic. The class have really enjoyed learning about this fascinating ecosystem. We have been learning about the Water Cycle, how animals adapt to their environments and about the different threats that these ecosystems face. We have also been lucky to have a visitor come to talk to us about the effects of Global Warming and Climate Change. In the final weeks, we have been completing some fantastic art linked to African landscapes, animals and tribes which will be proudly displayed in the classroom. P5/6W have also been learning about Christianity and performing different bible stories in groups to the rest of the class.

P5/6W enjoyed book day – I loved the costumes, so much effort put into them all, they looked fab. The children got the chance to share their favourite books with the class.

I wanted to give a special shout out to everyone in P5/6W for their wonderful diorama creations! They are absolutely fantastic and have been displayed in the upper stages corridor for all the children to see. I can see a lot of time and effort went into these projects so thank you, to you all, for your amazing effort and hard work – they are stunning! The class took time to share their creations with the rest of their peers and got the chance to give each one some positive feedback.

During our writing block, we have been writing persuasive and balanced arguments. P5/6W have also been using the persuasive techniques learned, to create amazing infographics highlighting the benefits of plants and persuading tourists to visit Africa.

Next term, we will be learning about Sustainability, Judaism and completing a food technology topic. We also will be going on a school trip (location to be decided) and going on an adventure, pond dipping locally. In reading, groups will be studying a range of Roald Dahl books and completing a range of related comprehension activities. In writing, we will begin looking at instructional writing and continue developing our imaginative writing skills.

I wish you all a wonderful, well deserved holiday and looking forward to hearing all about your holiday news when we get back in April.

Miss Winchester.
