5B - Owls

Welcome to the Year 5 (Owls) Class Blog!

Throughout the year, we will be updating our progress so please check in to see how we're getting on!

Good links for helping your child at home:

BBC Bitesize KS2

A good website which covers all subjects we cover throughout the year. I suggest this is your go-to website for understanding the vocabulary that is used in the curriculum. 

My Maths

We use My Maths as our online homework for Maths. It's a great tool to use as it demonstrates the steps the children can follow to complete tasks which is an overlooked aspect of the website. I recommend the children look through these steps before completing the homeworks I have set for them.

Term 4 - Operation Beast Creator

OPERATION BEAST CREATOR began with an urgent call out to the scientists of Year 5. The world needed us! A new species of aphid had begun to destroy the crops of the world! Year 5 were the world's last hope. Their mission (which they had no choice about, they just had to accept it) was to create a new minibeast that were remove or exterminate the aphid species. Working in different teams, they researched what aphids were, predators that were higher in the food chain, what selective breeding was and identifying features of minibeasts they had learnt about this term. They used all of their research to create...THE APHIDATOR! A minibeast-hybrid which had the head of an ant, the body of a lacewing-larvae, the legs of a wolf-spider, the pincers of a crab-spider, the wings of a wasp, the stinger of a bee and the antennae of a hornet. Operation Beast Creator? Completed it!

Term 4 - Easter Cracked

This term, Year 5 visited Spalding Baptist Church for their annual Easter Cracked workshop. The children enjoyed the walk to the church in the hot sunshine even though they had to keep up with Mr McHugh’s pace! They enjoyed the performances of the group, watched animations, joined in with an Easter rap and then finally created an Easter card. To top off a great afternoon, they each received a Cadbury’s Crème Egg!



Term 4 - Shakespeare Workshop

We've been lucky enough to have a group of Year 12 pupils from Spalding Girls' High School visit us this term. They organised a Shakespeare-inspired workshop which was influenced by A Midsummer Night's Dream. They helped us to create lanterns which will be used at the festival of light, colour and wonder in celebration of Shakespeare at Ayscoughfee Hall and Gardens on April 6th. If we are able to go to the event, we can take the lanterns we created home with us.



Term 4 - Bugtopia

When we went to Bugtopia, we saw all kinds of creatures such as the Madagascan hissing cockroach, royal python (called Lilly), crested geckos and all sorts of other animals. When we held the snake, it felt really cold and heavy! We spotted a nocturnal area which was known as an abandoned mine-shaft! In the nocturnal area, we got to touch a scorpion! We saw a cage of bats that were really smelly so we stayed away! Our class really enjoyed this trip, especially as the weather was nice and warm. We even got to play on the park when we had our lunch. We advise that you go on this trip as we all loved it. Thank you to all our parents for letting us go to Bugtopia and having a good day!


Term 3

Alchemy Island...well what can I say? It's been an adventure! This term, the children have exceeded any expectations I had of a class assembly. It all began with finding a map in our classroom which lead to a very scientific focused term. Their understanding of technology continues to astound me as they take to new applications like ducks to water. We've worked with the Spark Video app quite often throughout a range of subjects this term but have always managed to create some great pieces of work no matter the challenge I set them.
