Reading in 5CC
These are the books we have read so far, as a class:
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, our Harvest service this year took place on Zoom. We put together this video for our class contribution. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did making it.
During RE in Autumn 1, we learnt about God and how he is omniscient, omnipotent and eternal.
We learnt that churches are designed in a specific way to demonstrate Christian beliefs about
God. Sometimes churches have stained glass windows which are used to tell stories. We created our own stained glass windows which tell the story of a Holy and loving God.
During International Day, we learnt all about the impact of Climate Change on our planet. We learnt about how we gather data around climate, how satellites are used by scientists to monitor changes and we learnt that we can each make a small change by either reducing, reusing or recycling materials. We reused old t-shirts that no longer fit us to create our very own tote bags.
5CC spent a day investigating different aspects of sound from creating their own pan pipes to show how shorter pipes produce a higher pitch to visually demonstrating that sound is made by vibrations.
5CC hosted a Global Workshop and discussed many aspects of modern Muslim life in the UK. The children had a chance to question to an Imam.
This half term, 5CCs topic is 'We are Cryptographers'. The pupils learn more about communicating information securely through an introduction to cryptography (the science of keeping communication and information secret). They investigate early methods of communicating over distances, learn about two early ciphers, and consider what makes a secure password.
In these photographs, the children are encoding, transmitting and decoding messages using semaphore signals.
