Shark Class M

Shark M is one half of year 5/6 at Cambois Primary School. We are taught by Miss Mcallister and Mrs Darbyshire and supported by Miss Downing. 
 
Each day we start our mornings with a spelling lesson followed by maths and literacy. In the afternoons we follow a creative curriculum including Commando Joe's. These are the topics we are looking at this term:
 
Science: Human development
Geography: Terrestrial biomes
History: WW2, The Shang Dynasty and The Vikings
DT: Electronics
Art: Contemporary art
 
Literacy
This half term we have been looking at persuasive adverts. We have analysed the linguistic features in different adverts and begun to plan our own. We decided to base them on our class novel - Harry Potter. Here are some pictures of the broomsticks we have designed ready to market. Keep your eyes peeled for our adverts!
RE
This week in RE we made Diya lamps out of salt dough to celebrate Diwali. 
Clarty Commandos
Earlier this term went on a trip to the Clarty Commandos forest school. We had so much fun! We completed the assault course as individuals and then as a team, lit fires, played in the mud kitchen, battled it out on the balance beams and so much more - it was the best day! 
PSHE
We are learning about celebrating differences this half term. We are focusing on the message  ‘Nobody is normal!’
After learning about the story of Roberta Cowell the first transgender woman, we have created our own poster to celebrate differences.
