Curriculum Overview

On Friday the 22nd of June, 5RP had an amazing time with the most quirky, fun and energetic writer/illustrator...............Liz Million! She gave us super tips and inspired us all to love illustrating.

On the cathedral grounds, a lovely member of the public, called Shirley, came over to introduce herself and she told us some amazing stories about her experiences during the war. She was only a little girl at the time and lived not very far from our school. She told us about seeing a 'Doodlebug' and having a fright as she thought it was going to drop on her house and how her father was responsible for ensuring petrol was rationed fairly. Whilst she lived to tell the tale, she went on to remind us about how lucky we are that we didn't have to witness such sad, scary times. We were so glad to meet Shirley as it was great to hear about the war from someone who had lived through it.

To honour the Royal Wedding, we have been celebrating in school by dressing up and having lots of fun completing wedding themed activities. 5RP were awash with red, white and blue and we even had some pretty princesses and handsome princes! Check out the wedding cars and wedding dresses designed by the children.

Year 5 were thinking about real life heroes as part of a writing competition for which they had to write a story about a hero. We thought about many heroes across the globe such as Mahatma Ghandi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa and the list goes on. 

Then we had a brainwave....................

We found a hero very close to home- Mr Mulla from Al Imdaad Foundation! 

Al-Imdaad Foundation UK

We looked into the work done by Mr Mulla and his team and realised that this was one very special man. He has dedicated the last 7 years of his life doing good for other people. What makes Mr Mulla special is the way he doesn't think twice about his own life but constantly strives to make other people's lives better. Heroes set the standards pretty high and Mr Mulla and his team at Al imdaad have done exactly this.

 

 Al-Imdaad Foundation is a leading international aid relief and development organisation, dedicated to providing humanitarian services in crisis and non-crisis situations throughout the world to the most needy orphans, widows and destitute, irrespective of race, religion, culture and geographical boundary. As well as responding to disasters and emergencies, Al-Imdaad Foundation promotes sustainable economic and social development by working with local communities through their international offices.

 

Mr Mulla came into school to talk to the children about how he got involved in charity work and he definitely inspired the children into thinking about their aspirations in life.  He gave the children lots of good advice and words of wisdom. Mr Mulla may not have a cape or wear his underpants over his tights but he is definitely our superhero!

What an inspirational man!

The children enjoyed meeting Leanne and her dog, Elvis, today. They learnt that as a general rule, never approach a dog that has a stiff body posture. Relaxed dogs are safer. Some of the things that a child might want to do with a dog may be seen as a threat even if the child is trying to be friendly. If a dog walks away or backs away from you, it does not want you close. Leanne also helped the children to see the world from the dog’s viewpoint.

Year 5 visited the town library this week. We enjoyed learning about the various services provided by the library and we learnt how we can reserve books online. Most importantly, we are now members of the library and can't wait to visit regularly with our families.

We have had a fabulous time doing some amazing discovery work this week, from exploring the school grounds, looking at nature's colours, finding out about Jane Goodall and even designing our very own science coat! 5RP won the prize for the best science coat design! Wooohoooo!!!!

What a fantastic day we had! It all started with 5RP reading in class. Our focus to begin with was the suspense genre. We used this theme to create our very own piece of art, using various suspense, horror and mystery books as an inspiration. 

Look at what we produced!

The Peace Museum Workshop

 

We thoroughly enjoyed and learnt lots during the Peace workshop delivered by The Peace Museum, Bradford. The pupils appreciated Jude's fun, engaging approach, which enabled pupils to develop their self-knowledge, self-confidence and encouraged respect for democracy. 

 

 

By exploring stories of those involved in WW1, pupils were encouraged to think about and discuss their own values and develop an understanding of those around them. 

We began by thinking and reflecting on what peace means and how we can be peaceful citizens.The pupils loved learning about peace organisations and peace campaigns as well as thinking about their own individual peacefulness. There was a great discussion on peaceful relationships within the school and the wider community.As a class we decided that peaceful means of protest are the best ways of getting our points across like Martin Luther King and Mahatma Ghandhi and that violence doesn't solve anything.

In our English lessons, we have started reading the novel, 'Carrie's War' by Nina Bawden. This book links in with our history topic of World War Two and we already struggle to put the novel down at the end of a lesson. 

 

                                 Image result for carries war

We have collected some new words and phrases from the novel and are trying to understand how Carrie is feeling by putting ourselves in her shoes. Soon, we will write some diaries as Carrie. 

Preparing to write a story

 

We have had great fun collating quality vocabulary from Carrie's war and other texts. We used all the amazing vocabulary to create a story path.

 

What is a 'story path?' 

A story path allows us to slow down our writing and it helps us ensure that our writing is organised. We begin jotting down key vocabulary (feelings, figurative language, quality sentences and so on) for each stage of the story. We move along the path as the story progresses. This ensures that the whole story consists of quality vocabulary and sentences and it also helps us to organise the story, something we struggle with usually. It helps us think about each key event in the story and as the quality vocabulary is already gathered, we can then focus on composing quality sentences. 

 

Constructing the story path has been great fun and our teacher is feeling positive about the outcome- we can't wait to begin writing the story and our teacher can't wait to read them.
