Welcome to Class 5/6L

Our class is a mix of Year 5 and Year 6 pupils and is taught by Mr Lawton. Our Learning Support Assistant is Mrs Lawton. As Upper Key Stage 2, we know we are have a responsibility to set expectations for other children in our school to follow. We are working hard on developing skills to prepare us for taking the next step as we move up to Secondary school.
Our themes and topics this year will be:

Autumn - The Jungle Book
Spring - Saving Our Planet
Summer - Local History

Day 2 – Captains Cook’s Monument and Bush craft

Day 2 saw the windy conditions change our original plans of climbing to the top of Roseberry Topping to visiting Captain Cook’s Monument. The morning consisted of walking into the forests near Great Ayton and then building dens to shelter from the strong winds. Following this, we built fires for our Kelly kettles and produced some lovely, welcomed hot chocolate to warm ourselves up. As everyone would do with a fire in the woods we finished the morning off by roasting marshmallows over our fires.

After lunch in the forest we continued our adventures up to the top of the forest where we were greeted with Captain Cook’s Monument. The views were amazing; we could see as far as Middlesbrough. Our descent was made more fun through playing a range of different games in the heather and finishing of with some mud sliding.

Day 1 – Beck Scrambling

Despite the wind conditions, we were still able to go beck scrambling near Goathland. We had a sloppy descent down into the beck where the water levels were rather high. We took part in a range of challenges from wadding down stream to crawling through tight spaces in the woodland. The adventure was finished with a dunking under Malham Spout waterfall, which was cascading a huge flow of water.

Long Term Plan

Year 5 are excited to be undertaking an Arts project in partnership with Scarborough Museums Trust. On Monday 28th January we were fortunate to take part in a Writing workshop with the fantastic Author Ian Clayton. We use ‘A Sense of Place’ that meant at lot to us to create our own poems and narrative stories. Also during the day we had an opportunity to use pieces of art about Scarborough to help inspire our creative writing.  

Year 5 visited Woodend Museum to learn more about WW1 and the Scarborough bombardment. We had the chance to wear some replica clothing and handle many artefacts that had been salvaged from the bombardment. Ending the day we wrote our own remembrance poems. Take a look at our photos.

This half term in Year 5, we are learning about WW1. We are reading War Horse by our author of the term Michael Morpurgo. Along with reading War Horse, we are looking at the impact of WW1 with in the Scarborough area through investigating about the Scarborough Bombardment. Have a look through our photos to find out what we are getting up to. 





Autumn Term

This term we are going to be learning about “Our Place In the World” in which will be carrying out a study all around South America.Along side this we will be reading Michael Morpurgo’s Kensuke’s Kingdom, which tells the tale of how a young boy named Michael mysteriously disappears the night before his twelfth birthday. The next morning, Michael finds himself washed up on a beach on a remote island with a bowl of water and some grilled fish next to him.
