Welcome to Seals Class!

 

Our teachers are Miss Kelly and Mrs Welch. We are an energetic Year 5 class who love to learn and explore how to make and create different things

 

Autumn 1
Topic - Beast creator
Novel Study - There's a boy in the girls' bathroom.
 
 
A bug, a creepy-crawly, a beast. He’ll tickle your skin then go in for the sting. Arachnids, insects, molluscs and myriapods, hiding in nooks and beneath darkened rocks. Come search for these minibeasts, and let’s sort them out. How many legs? How many wings? Who does it eat and who eats it? Can you classify it? Can you draw it or make it? Build a bug hotel or a wonderful wormery, then watch them wriggle and burrow, mixing earth as they go. Discover where in the world you’ll find the deadliest beasts. Perhaps the Vespa mandarinia japonica is the one that you fear? Why not become a beast creator? Selectively breed a killer predator that saves the world from the super strong aphid. You’ll be a hero. ‘There was an old lady who swallowed a fly. I don’t know why she swallowed a fly. Perhaps she’ll die?’

Novel Study - There's a boy in the girls' bathroom.

 

In English this term, we will be studying There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom by Louis Sachar. We will be writing a diary entry from a different perspective, a story with issues and dilemmas, a balanced argument and a persuasive letter. The grammar objectives covered this term will be  modal verbs, adverbs, formal and informal language, persuasive devices, rhetorical questions, parenthesis and relative clauses.  In our spelling lessons, we will be focusing on converting nouns or adjectives into verbs by using the suffixes ‘-ate’, ‘-ise’ and ‘-ify’; as well as using the verb prefixes ‘dis-’, ‘de-’, ‘mis-’, ‘over-’ and ‘re-’.
