It has been a brilliant first few weeks of term and we are so pleased to welcome all the new pupils of Falcon Class back to school after the challenging events of the last six months. The children have adapted so well to being back in the classroom and have produced some fantastic work so far – we’ve got a feeling it’s going to be an amazing year!
We begin this new academic year with the theme How we express ourselves. This is a fantastic theme to start Year 5 with and it will follow the central inquiry Stories are told in may ways and may influence people’s beliefs, values and understanding of the world.
We began this inquiry in week one by looking at writers from around the world. The children produced some amazing artwork linking geography, literacy and art together to create these fabulous watercolour maps showing a variety of classic authors from around the world. We are so proud of their focus and concentration when working with watercolours to paint these beautiful maps.
Falcon Class have also begun to look at stories around creation. The children read a traditional Aboriginal creation story called Dreamtime and a Hindu creation story which they will be comparing to the more scientific theory around the creation of the Earth.
Here are some of their pictures of the Rainbow Serpent, a key figure in the Aboriginal story.
Another exciting event to start this term was Roald Dahl Day. Here are some pictures of the things Falcon Class got up to on this day.

Daci is learning really well. I love the fact that the children are pushed to their full potential.
It was very nice to be able to view Oliver’s work and see how he is progressing. Thank you for the opportunity.

Thanks for inviting me to do a story session with your school. I found the whole experience very rewarding as both children, and teachers were open to engage with me, and participated in listening to the stories, dressing up, singing and dancing.

“The behaviour of the Year 5 children was a credit to the school when we were out on the road.”

At the end of every lesson I know a bit more than before.
