Wow, what an incredible summer term it has been! In our English class, we delved into the captivating world of “Kaspar Prince of Cats.” Little did we know that this would lead us to uncover the intriguing story of the Titanic’s maiden voyage and its tragic fate. We were tasked with analysing the events and writing arguments, using key vocabulary and persuasive structures, to debate who was to blame for the ship’s demise. This exercise challenged us to think critically and express our opinions effectively.
During our Maths lessons, we embarked on a mathematical journey that covered a variety of topics. We honed our skills in adding and subtracting decimals with up to three decimal places, becoming confident in performing calculations accurately. We also explored the properties of shapes, discovering their unique attributes, and learned about position and direction, which allowed us to describe and manipulate objects in space. Additionally, we delved into the realm of negative numbers, comprehending their significance and applying them in different scenarios. Lastly, we tackled the concept of volume, mastering the art of calculating the space occupied by three-dimensional objects. These math lessons challenged us intellectually and broadened our understanding of the subject.
In History, our unit titled “Who should be the new face of the £10 note” ignited our curiosity and fascination for famous figures from the past. We embarked on a journey of exploration, uncovering the historical significance of both well-known and unfamiliar faces. Through extensive research, we delved into the lives and achievements of these individuals, and through collaborative teamwork, we presented our chosen candidate for the new face of the £10 note. This unit not only deepened our understanding of history but also enhanced our research and presentation skills.
As the grand finale of the year, Year 5 and 6 joined forces to put on a spectacular end-of-year production titled “Pirates of the Curry Bean.” We were transported back in time, embodying pirates and crew members on an unforgettable adventure to the island of Lumbago. The enthusiasm and dedication of every student made the performance truly remarkable. The audience was captivated by our humour, acting skills, and the energy we poured into each scene. We couldn’t be prouder of ourselves and grateful for the support we received.
As the academic year comes to a close, we want to express our heartfelt gratitude to all who made this year so memorable. Well done to each and every child. Their knowledge and enthusiasm fuelled their love for learning. It has been a truly wonderful year, full of growth, laughter, and new friendships. Thank you for an unforgettable journey!
