Osprey

Welcome to Year 5 Osprey Class!

 

This term, our topic is ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ and we are really enjoying reading the book by Roald Dahl.

 

In English, we have written our own chants in the style of Roald Dahl. Can you imagine George saying them as he mixed his marvellous medicine mixture?

 

 

Even though Grandma has been very mean to George, do you think that George should give his 'medicine' to Grandma?  We held a Conscience Alley to help George decide!

In Science, we have been looking at 'Reversible and Irreversible Changes'.

In George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl, George wanted to get his own back on his grumpy, old grandma. He thought about doing 'Something whooping. Something absolutely terrific. A real shocker. A sort of explosion. He wanted to blow away that witchy smell that hung about her in the next room.'

We talked about the dangers of mixing chemicals, without adult supervision,  and the effects they could have on a real human being and that we should never touch harmful substances.

Together we looked at mixing substances like bicarbonate of soda and vinegar and the effects this had on a balloon. The balloon inflated! Do you now why?

We looked at the indicators to see if this was a reversible or irreversible change.  What do you think?

 

In Art and Design, we have been learning to draw in the style of the book’s illustrator Quentin Blake. We looked at the different types of line he used in his drawing - thin/thick, light/dark, straight/curved, jagged and dashed lines. We tried to improve our observational drawing skills. How do you think we did?

On Thursday afternoon, we were lucky enough to receive some visitors from Japan. They taught us how to write in Japanese and how to make objects by folding paper (Origami):

George Kranky put lots of ingredients into his marvellous medicine mixture. We conducted a fair test to find out which of these ingredients dissolved. Do you think curry powder is soluble or insoluble?

EWWWWWW! Look at this dirty water! We made filters in order to separate the dirt (the insoluble solid) and the water (the liquid). We had to decide which materials would help the water to pass through but would keep the larger particles behind. Do you think our filters worked? Would you drink the remaining water?

In R.E. this term, we have been learning about the 'big story' of the Bible (Creation, The Fall, People of God, Incarnation, Gospel, Salvation and The Kingdom of God). We looked carefully at the pictures created by the artist Emma Yarlett and listed what we could see. We then tried to put the pictures into the correct order.

Anti-Bullying Week

Still image for this video
This week has been Anti-Bullying Week. As a class, we have been discussing what bullying is and learning how to help yourself or others who are being bullied. We have been exploring scenarios through role-play. We hope you enjoy our videos.

Remember though, if you are being bullied then tell an adult you trust e.g. a parent, a teacher or another older member of your family. Don't keep it to yourself – people want to help you and make it better.
If you think you are being cyber-bullied then…
- never respond to any form of cyber-bullying
- use the 'Report It' button to report a problem to any social networking site
- show whatever you receive (try and get screenshots or print outs) to a responsible adult so that they can help you.

Do you like our Christmas tree? We made it by using recycled materials! Can you spot the recycled objects (Bottles, lids, felt, buttons, foil, paper, card)? In R.E, we have been asking the question 'Was Jesus the Messiah?' We created this tree to show this. The star represents Jesus' birth, the green tree symbolises His everlasing love with the bottles facing upwards, towards Heaven. The doves represent the holy spirit and are white for purity. They are made by using our recycled lesson worksheets - of the prophecies of Micah and Isiah. The holly symbolises His suffering - the spiky leaves are His crown of thorns, and the berries His blood. We arranged them into leaves of three for the Trinity.
