Ash Class News
Spring Term 2022
Spring Term in Year 5 Class has been a very busy term. During our earthquakes and volcanoes topic, we worked in groups to build our own volcanoes and we were even able to make them 'explode', using vinegar and bicarbonate of soda!
We have loved learning about the Victorians and were so excited to be able to show our parents what we have learnt in our class assembly at the end of term. Dressed up in our Victorian costumes, we acted out scenes showing the lives of children during the 1800s and early 1900s, from mine workers to school children, housemaids to wealthy families.
Another highlight during the Spring Term has been our residential trip: a wonderful adventure in Epping Forest. We learnt map skills, how to identify trees and sang songs by the campfire.
Spring Term 2020
For the majority of children we were teaching remotely. This involved a daily English and Maths live lesson as well as one other live lessons focusing on a range of other topics such as French, RE, History, Geography and Science. We also celebrated Wellbeing Wednesday where all children tried to spend the day off the screen focusing on their wellbeing. We are so proud of all families and children for their resilience during this time.
Some wonderful work was completed during this time.
Autumn Term 2020
Ash class have had a brilliant term studying a range of fiction and non-fiction texts, learning about the Mayans in History and carrying out all sorts of Scientific investigations. We all enjoyed getting dressed up for Children in Need and more recently, designing and producing our own Christmas nativity video.
Other Autumn term highlights were the Barnet Year 5 skipping challenge (with a top score of over 100 skips in a minute!), a visit from Reverend Booker for our RE topic and also making our own videoed news report about Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Antarctic adventure gone wrong.
Ash class have truly made us all so proud every day. They are making great progress in their work and are fun, interesting and mature members of the Wren community.
