Kirkstall - Autumn Term
Wow! What a great start to Year 5! Almost half way through the term already and Kirkstall have been really busy with our Mission topic.
Our class book this term is 'Wolf Brother' by Michelle Paver which is set in the New Stone Age. The main character is Torak, a young boy who sets out on his own mission to track down an evil bear.
We are using the book as inspiration for our own work, particularly writing special stories called Quests, our own versions of Torak's mission. Look out for Part One of our Quests outside Kirkstall classroom.
In science we have been studying 'Living Things'. We have looked at Lifecycles and the changes that occur in humans as we get older. We are now beginning to look at how plants and some animals reproduce.
Throughout this half term, Kirkstall have enjoyed being active learners and taking part in a variety of tasks such as 'Quiz, Quiz Trade' and learning the Roman Numerals song in maths, and Liturgies and Reflections in RE. Please have a look at us in action in the photos below.
If you'd like to learn the Roman Numerals song yourselves, here is the link:
Don't forget to do the actions though!
We had a wonderful time on our Pilgrimage to St. Marie's Cathedral in Sheffield on 13th November.
Please look at the slideshow of photos from our visit.
