We are Big Ben class!
This webpage has been designed by our class. We are a caring, creative and clever class of Year 5 Children. We are dedicated to work and achieving many great things!
Our effort levels are spectacular. We are always aiming high together and have an I can do it attitude!
This is the place to see what we have been up to in Big Ben class and to find all of our homework.
This Half Term our topic is all about beliefs, we'll be looking into different periods of History to see what different types of people believed and the lives that they led. We'll look into Stonehenge and talk about what it is and it's significance. Our class text in Literacy is The Boy in the Dress by David Walliams, this book links nicely into our topic about beliefs and we're looking forward to getting our teeth into it.
In art we have been making Stonehenge out of clay ,most people have finished and they are waiting to superglue the different pieces together ,other people are still moulding the clay into the shape but will be finished soon. We have also been making our own fossils and are waiting to see the finished result. In maths we have been reflecting and translating shapes which is lots of fun! In Literacy we have been looking at the features of a play script and writing our very own about what we think will happen next in boy in the dress. We do this thing called word of the day where we pick a word out of the folder and we have to make a sentence with that word in but there is also a challenge along with the word, who’s up for a challenge? In topic we have been learning about the Bronze Age, we answered some questions about bronze, metal and the beaker people.

In science we have been looking at the human life cycle and how we are different to our family and others. Our class has been working very well and we are hoping to get 100% attendance.

We all had a great time at our Holes trip at the playhouse, thanks for taking the children to and from the playhouse. We had lots of tired children the next day but they got on with their work exactly the same, well done! Ellie, Sophie and Joe represented the school in a swimming gala and all did really well. They all won at least one of their races! The school finished 4th out of 9 other local schools. We attempted to make our balloon blasters with the plastic bottles but it didn't exactly go to plan, we'll try again at some point!
