Welcome back 5JP! I hope you all had a fantastic break over Christmas. Our new Topic is ‘Time Traveller’. In class, we will be learning all about how art has evolved over history, how the experiences of different generations have changed and how Birmingham grew from being a small market town in the middle ages to being the second largest city in the country.
Please try and bring a photo of yourself as a young child into school so we can make a fantastic display outside the classroom!
Our new topic after Christmas will be “Time Traveller”. We will be looking at how the lives of people have changed over the generations.
We would like you to do 2 mini projects for us:
- Find a baby photograph to bring into school for us to photocopy to make a display.
- Interview an older member of your family and find out how their lives have changed since they were children. You will need to tell me
- Who you interviewed?
- How old they are?
- What relationship are they to you?
- What was their proudest achievement?
- What has changed most in their lifetime?
- What they miss most about being a child?
You can record the findings from your interview any way you like!
Good luck and Merry Christmas!!
Its almost time for our Cedars Christmas Assembly. This year, Year 5 and Year 3 with be performing together the Christmas story. Each class will be performing their own song and 5JP have been practising ‘It was a starry night’. Please have a go at practising the song at home so that you know all of the words.
5JP really enjoyed their visit to the Think Tank in Birmingham on Thursday. The children learned all about different forces, the power of magnetism and were able to carry out their own investigation into friction.
Hope you all had a great first week back after half term 5JP. I have been amazed by all of the homework that children have brought in this week. Its clear that all of you have put so much work into your roller coasters and pyramids over half term. Well done everyone! I am really looking forward to all the designs that will be brought in next.
