Bronze Class

We would like to welcome you to Bronze Class.  We are an extremely hard working year group and hope you enjoy viewing (and taking part in) some of the exciting, challenging activities we will be tackling this year.

Green Screen Technology

We have been lucky enough to be able to trial using our new online journal (Seesaw) to save some of our cross-curricular work to.  We have written some informative and thought provoking presentations around the issue of plastics and our environment – in particular the World’s Oceans. We combined using a range of persuasive techniques and vocabulary, to really put our point across to our viewers.  We used a combination of green screen technology and apps such as Apple Clips and Chatterpix, to create some amazing visual presentations and saved them into our Seesaw accounts.  Below are just a couple of examples of what we have produced.   I think you will agree, the children have a strong message to put across to us all about saving the environment for their future.  Maybe it’s time to change?

We have been busy this term already!

Our History topics have been to research the reasons that Britain got involved in World War I and World War II and the impact of these wars on the modern world.

In English our text for this term is the story of Pavana’s Journey.  The story is set in Afghanistan and it explores the tragedy of loss through war and how resilient and brave children can be.  Pavana is on a quest to find her mother and we get an insight into her life throughout this difficult time.

In Science we have also linked to our topic by investigating light and electrical circuits, discussing why blackouts were needed during the war.

I P.E. we developed our Badminton skills and our gymnastic abilities.  Years 5 & 6 also an intra Benchball competition – it was great fun!

Let’s Achieve!

HOMEWORK – Don’t forget  homework is set on Fridays and is due back into school on Wednesday the following week.  Please do encourage your child to complete this, it really does help with their learning.  Your support is always appreciated.

ACCELERATED READING

We have a very strong focus on Reading, so please support us by hearing your child read regularly.  Our Accelerated Reading program encourages them to become avid readers with the children being able to take quizzes on their books to demonstrate their understanding of the text.
