Spring Term 2020

Oak Class have been time travelling this term, learning more about pre-history. They visited Tullie House to learn about the stone, iron and bronze ages. They compared artefacts from the time and have learned more about what historical sources tell us about how stone age people lived as ‘Hunter Gatherers’ and then developed to become farmers. This has inspired them writing time travel stories with effective setting descriptions.

Autumn term 2019

Oak Class (Year 5 and 6) had an amazing day out to Chester Zoo! They took part in a workshop with the zookeepers to learn about how animals are adapted to survive in their specific habitats, getting hands on with real skeletons, bones, furs and skins! They saw lot of rare creatures up close with the jaguars, orang-utans and penguins being real highlights. It was a long bus ride home, but we broke this up with a lovely supper at Tebay Services. This visit has inspired the children to research their favourite animals and write their own information texts about these to create a ‘Zoo Keeper’s Guide’.

As part of their learning in Remembrance week, the children watched the ‘Christmas Truce’ Sainsbury’s advert, choosing their own writing genre to respond to the events. They learned about emotive language and edited their writing to create a second ‘better’ draft on the computers. They studied the work of the artist Georgia O’Keeffe and created their own poppy painting in her style, focussing on colour mixing and blending to create light and shade.

They were shocked to discover the negative effects of deforestation upon the world’s rainforest. This has encouraged them to plan ways in which we can make a difference- through paper recycling and choosing beauty products that are palm oil free. They have taken a pledge to support their families and our school community with this change.
