Is he breathing? (17/05/2013)
The children enjoyed a lesson with Mrs Cross this week where she showed them some first aid techniques. The children thoroughly enjoyed this, especially using Mr Deadman to practise on and learnt a lot. There are some super photos in our gallery.
Busy, busy, busy! (17/05/2013)
What a week it has been in class 5, the children have been showing us all they have learnt during Literacy and Numeracy. During Science the children have been using ICT to find facts about the living things they saw at the beach. We then drew them in Art and wrote out the information we had found, this lovely work is now displayed in our classroom. The children enjoyed a trip to the park as a reward for their extra hard work this week.
Living things at the farm. (13/05/2013)
This week class 5 went on a trip to Lobb's Farm at Heligan. Although it was quite a blustery day we made the most of every minute and learnt so much about 'living things' at the farm which is our topic this term. Firstly we were split into two groups, one which stayed at the farm and listened to a very interesting talk about the farm and the other went on a tractor ride around the farm. During the talk we learnt that the family have lived on the farm for four generations and all three brothers live on different parts of the farm. We learnt about the crops grown, the animals reared and the birds and smaller creatures like toads and newts that live on the farm. During the tractor ride we saw the farm in action, we saw the cows and a bull as well as sheep and chickens. We had a quiz about what we had learnt and then had our lunch. We played in the fields and then came back and enjoyed some fun puzzles all about the farm. A very big thank you to Mrs Parish, Mrs Bromage and Mrs Fletcher Groves for helping us on our day out.
Living things at the beach. (07/05/2013)
This week a very excited class 5 set off to Charlestown Beach to discover living things amongst the rock pools and sand. They had so much fun and found crabs, limpets, starfish and shrimp to name just a few living things. As always the behaviour of our children was exemplary, we are all so proud to be part of class 5.
A load of old rubbish! (23/04/2013)
Ever wondered what happens to the rubbish at school? Class 5 investigated this very question this week. We went outside to see where Mr Stone puts our rubbish. As a school we take recycling very seriously and we are encouraging the children to do the same. We found out that we recycle as much as we can but some things are general waste.
We're going on a...bug hunt! (23/04/2013)
During Science class 5 went on a mini beast hunt this week and what a lot of mini beasts they found. There was some squealing and some cries of "I don't want to touch it!", but most of the children got stuck in and managed to find all sorts. We then had a look through a magnifying glass to see all the different parts of the bodies.
We have been looking at the inverse of addition during Numeracy and have begun to plan our own versions of 'The Magic Orb' during Literacy.
On Friday we are continuing to look at mini beats during Science but this time on Charlestown Beach, please remember wellington boots and a packed lunch.
Picasso in class 5! (28/03/2013)
We have really enjoyed finishing our Picasso style self portraits this week. We outlined our features with brightly coloured pens and added borders and sequins. They look fantastic.
Get ready, get set and go! Our Easter egg and spoon race was so much fun and we all enjoyed the yummy chocolate egg after, mmmm!
Your children have been sent home with a literacy comprehension paper to work through over the holidays. Please take some time to look at it together and talk over some of the answers.
We hope you have a wonderful Easter break, thank you for all your support over the last term.
Spanish Day (22/03/2013)
Another busy week in class 5 . During Literacy we have been learning all about Madrid in order to write a non - fiction report. We have been learning about the painting style of Picasso and the children have created their own portraits in his style. We are still looking at forces in Science and have performed an investigation into how fast a toy car can travel on a ramp. What helps the car go faster? What causes it to slow down?
Our Spanish Day was so much fun, with each child trying some Spanish food, learning some Spanish words and learning how to play some Spanish games. We also had a visit from a flamenco dancer and enjoyed a dance lesson. Phew, just another packed week at Bishop Bronescombe School. Have a wonderful weekend.
Comic Relief. (22/03/2013)
Thank you all so much for your support during our week long exercise marathon in aid of Comic Relief. Mr Deadman organised a really great event which not only gave us the chance to learn about healthy living, but also highlighted the fact that we are lucky to live the way we do and how others are not as fortunate as us. Every child and adult had the chance to be involved with the exercise equipment and show our support for this worthy event.
Cathedral Trip (22/03/2013)
We really enjoyed our visit to Truro Cathedral this week. As always the children's behaviour was excellent. They really enjoyed seeing the variety of things we have been learning about during RE. Photos will follow soon.
Mother's Day (12/03/2013)
We hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day and that you were spoilt by your lovely children. They worked very hard on your cards and biscuits and we hope you enjoyed them.
Forces in the park! (01/03/2013)
This week during Science we have been looking at different forces. We went to the park and used the different equipment to decide which force we needed to use.
We have had fun in Literacy learning our class story Ferdinand The Bull, we have used freeze frame as well as sequencing pictures to help us learn it.
There are still a few letters needed for our trip to the cathedral in Truro which is on Thursday, we need them back please.
Disco fever! (15/02/2013)
We have had a very busy week looking at what we have learnt since christmas and who can remember what! We had such fun at our Valentine disco and class 5 showed Mrs Freight that they can really make some moves on the dance floor!
We hope you all have a fun and safe half term break.
Musical Poetry. (08/02/2013)
The children enjoyed our literacy lesson on poetry, we split into smaller groups and recited the poem whilst playing instruments. The children enjoyed finding the rhythm of the poem.
Can all children bring a coat on Monday as will be having our first session on road safety outdoors.
Estimating and catching stars! (06/02/2013)
This week during numeracy we have had fun estimating blocks in baskets.
In literacy we have been reading 'Catch a star', the children had to come up with fun ways of how they would catch a star. We have continued with making our puppets and they look great. What a busy week! Please remember to return your permission letters for road safety as well as any disco response forms, thank you.
Our trip to the chapel (01/02/2013)
Class 5 have been looking at things associated with the Christian church. We were very lucky to have the chance to visit Bethel Chapel and see a baptism with our doll, a wedding and we even sang in the choir pews. A very big thank you to Danny who performed all the ceremonies as well as talking us through all the important features of the chapel. A big thank you as well to Sally who played the organ for us.
Man made or natural? (25/01/2013)
What a busy week we have had, during numeracy we have been learning all about fractions. This week during science, we have been looking at different sources of light, are they man made or natural?
We had so much fun making our puppets during DT. The children have begun to plan how to make a puppet with moving parts! On Thursday we enjoyed listening to a lady from the fire station teach us all about fire safety.
Another busy fun filled week in class 5.
From shadows to dark caves! (17/01/2013)
Firstly, Mrs Freight would like to say a big thank you to the staff and children in class 5 for such a lovely welcome, the children are really looking after her and making her feel at home!
We have been very busy learning our class story 'Can't you sleep little bear?', and innovating the story with our own ideas. During numeracy we are learning about division and the children are doing really well. We have been looking at how shadows are formed and enjoyed experimenting with our torches making shadows during science. All this and much, much more, what a busy week in class 5.
