Class 5 Trinity

September 2020

Welcome to our class page for the academic year 2020-21. It could be a strange year ahead but whatever comes our way I know that Year 6 in Trinity Class will be Aiming High! It was fantastic to welcome everyone back at the start of the month and to see the children enjoying each other's company after so long apart.

 

Our topic this term is about Ancient Egypt but our main focus will be on ensuring that we are all tuned in with our maths and literacy learning again. We'll be using "The Book of Hopes" for our initial literacy sequence and also a beautiful book called "Here we are" that the other classes in the school are also studying as part of our recovery curriculum.

 

Week beginning September 21st

This week we have really enjoyed a week of Forest School. Our sessions were themed around our topic and thinking about the amazing construction of the pyramids in Ancient Egypt. We also made sure that we worked together in teams and with lots of different class members. Time was given in each session for us to reflect on how we are feeling about our return to school and the times we are living in. By Wednesday's session there was a consensus that tiredness was the overwhelming feeling!

 

Special mention goes to Aggie for some superb construction ideas - she helped her team to make an amazing bridge for our bird of hope. Martin and Rohan also showed great resilience when, after working hard for 45 minutes, their tower collapsed at the last minute. Well done boys! Making a catapult to launch our bird across the woods proved to be slightly more of a challenge but all groups succeeded in getting the bird off the ground....even if he flew backwards most times. On Thursday we split into three groups and built some huge dens - it was good to hear some imaginative play ... one den came complete with woodland hand gel and a temperature scanner!
