Class 5/6P

Welcome to Class 5/6 P smiley

Myself and Mrs Reynolds would like to warmly welcome all of our children into year 5/6.  We hope you had a great summer break - we have heard lots of exciting tales about holidays, day trips and many fun activities the children have enjoyed over the summer.  I hope we are all now refreshed and ready to start this new and exciting adventure of being in year 5/6 at Westwood.  We have had a brilliant first week getting to know each other and it has been an absolute joy to see the class excited and positive about the months ahead.

Star of the Week!

Burn 2 Learn

 

Westwood have introduced  Burn 2 Learn this year to help us improve our learning whilst also helping us to keep fit.  During lessons we have tasks to complete that involve light exercise  and have the added benefit of improving our memory of subject knowledge.

5/6 P MUSIC   September 2017

Most of our class were lucky enough last year to learn the ukelele and this year we are continuing our amazing skills.  We are currently working on new chords, D7 and G7 to play Faith by Stevie Wonder. Its a great song to sing and everyone is loving it! 

 

Along with our Ukelele lesson we also have a singing lesson on Wednesday morning, during which we are practising our  songs for the CD we will be recording soon!

 

Mr Ogden is also teaching us music lessons  on an afternoon using specially created music programme.

The Mysterious Mayan Adventure AD900

 

We have already begun our first exciting adventure to discover about the ancient Mayan civilisation.  we will be travelling back in time with a famous explorer to learn all about the Mayan way of life and have so far found out where they lived.  What happens next is top secret  but we will keep you updated on here!

After travelling back in time to visit the Mayans, we decided to make a Mayan headdress using feathers and other craft materials.  We designed how we would like the headdress to look before we started to make it.  When we had finished, we evaluated our finished products!
