Class 10

Picture 1

Welcome to Class 10. In year 5 there are consistently high academic standards and expectations for every individual and we aim to endeavour creative, exciting and memorable experiences inside and outside the classroom. We hope you enjoy being with us on our learning journey. 

 

Mrs Hatton and Mrs Wright 

Our PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure that both indoor and outdoor kits are provided for these days.

This term we shall be learning about Charles Waterton- our chosen ‘Greatest Yorkshireman’, Mining in our locality- where we shall visit the National Coal Mining Museum and Forces in Science-where we shall make our own pulley systems. 

 

 

During topic, some of us have been looking at real accounts of past child miners. We have also been reading some accounts of parents, whose children were also miners. With the information gathered, we have role played a commission from 1842 and put our points across to oppose mining for young children-given the dangers and conditions based on evidence we have read. As well as this, we managed to have a little bit of fun time to dress up at the end!

Class 10 have enjoyed their Science this afternoon. They have made different sized parachutes in order to conduct a fair test to help them understand how air resistance can effect speed. The children have carefully chosen the controlled variables, an independent variable as well as the dependent variable, in order to ensure their test was fair.

Thank you Zander for bringing in and sharing your Grandad's old Davy lamp and miners helmet with us.

This week whilst some of our peers have been inFrance, some of Years 5 and 6 have had the opportunity to become young entrepreneurs. 

 

During the the week we have thought carefully about designing bespoke products that would be made out of Lego. 

 

In in addition to this, we have also researched the power of advertising and been able to have the opportunity to design our own advertisement posters as well as create an advertisement using the iPad to persuade people to choose our product.

 

Here are some of our own advertisements. Hope you enjoy them as much as us. 

William, Reece and Noah
