Welcome to Year 5/6 Topaz Class
Welcome to the Topaz Class page. Miss Mawson is our class teacher and we are very lucky to have Miss Fenton working with us to support our learning. Please take a look at all the great things we have been getting up to so far this year. We hope you like it!
In English lessons, we have enjoyed learning our model text 'Glockenheim's tower' from memory by creating our very own text map and actions. Throughout this unit, we have enjoyed reading a variety of warning story examples and have worked hard to explore what makes an effective setting description and resolution.
In science, we have had a great time learning all about the circulatory system. We have learnt all about the heart and the different blood vessels that work together to carry blood containing water, oxygen and nutrients around the body. We have taken part in several experiments exploring how exercise can alter our heart rate.
In our art lessons, we have enjoyed looking at different art styles and techniques. We have looked at how colour and tone can create emotion. As a fabulous finish to our topic, we created our very own abstract art work, which was inspired by Sonia Delaunay: Electric Prisms and Pollock: Yellow Islands. Take a look at our fantastic creations below!
Our RE learning has been linked to the question 'What does religion say when life gets hard?'. As part of this big question, we explored our beliefs about the soul and created a piece of art to represent our own souls using pastels.
We had an amazing time on our recent residential trip to Kingswood Activity Centre! It was a fun-filled trip that helped us to build relationships with our peers and develop more confidence and resilience in ourselves.
