Welcome to Willow Class!
We are Year 5 and Year 6 at Andoversford Primary School. Our teacher is Miss Davis Butler and our teaching assistant is Mrs Bowers.
In the Autumn Term, our topic 'Conflict: Then and Now' was all about conflict starting 100 years ago with WW1 and more modern issues such as the Syrian crisis. Some of the things we learnt about include the type of transport used in WW1 and making comparisons to vehicles used in modern day warfare, designing our own WW1 inspired ambulances and writing newspapers and short stories about refugees fleeing Syria.
During Spring, we learnt all about human impact on the environment specifically focussing on plastic pollution on marine life. Our topic this term is therefore entitled 'Save Our Seas'. We have thoroughly enjoyed learning about what we can do to prevent pollution and used our knowledge to write to a local MP and create an information text too. We also made our own junk-model sea creatures and printed our own eco-friendly tote bags.
You can use our class page to find out what we have been up to recently, learn about our topics covered throughout the year and access some important documents for our year group. Keep scrolling down and you'll come across some letters that have been sent out, important expectations of this year group and other items like our topic web for the term.
Man on the Moon
This term we are celebrating 50 years since man first walked on the Moon. In 1969, history was made when we travelled into Space and began exploring the Moon.
In this topic, we hope to learn lots about the planets in our solar system and make comparisons between them. We're going to be putting our knowledge to the test by writing some fantasy narratives, creating fact files and even designing our own space buggies!
