Welcome to Citrine Class!

We are Year 4 and Year 5 pupils. We aim to be positive role models for the younger pupils in school and always do our best to set a good example to others in what we say and do.

Pupils in Year 5 enjoy taking on lots of different responsibilities around school such as being Play Leaders who organise games and activities for all children to join in with at playtimes.  Year 5 also take on the role of Assembly Helpers, setting up the hall ready for assembly, putting the music on, helping with the technology and keeping a record of what each assembly was about.

All home learning resources can now be found in your child's class Team

The below document tells you how to access Teams and where to find the home learning resources.

Design Technology - Evaluating Biscuits

On Thursday afternoon we enjoyed sampling different biscuits to help us explore the qualities that they had in preparation for our work on designing and baking homemade biscuits. Our overall favourite was the chocolate digestive!


Science- Exploring Pitch

In Science lesson this week we learnt about sound and pitch.  We found out that in the recorder, the more holes were covered the lower the pitch was because the air column was longer. In a drum, the tighter and thinner the skin was, the higher the pitch was.  We then made our own panpipes out of drinking straws and sellotape to help investigate the different sounds and pitch of the straw lengths.


Robinwood Residential 

Citrine Class had a fabulous 3 days away at Robinwood Activity Centre in Todmorden this week.  The weather was mostly kind to us and we took part in lots of exciting activities including raft building, zip wire, night line, knight's quest, crate challenge, piranha pool and trapeze to name just a few.  The staff at the centre all commented on our good behaviour, manners and excellent team work!

In class this week ....

This week we have planned and written a piece of persuasive writing to persuade our audience to visit Ancient Greece for a holiday.  We have used it to show all the things that we have worked on this half term to improve our written work. In Maths we have been using formal methods for division and applied these methods to reasoning and problem solving questions. We have completed our group posters about modern day Greece and have created our own classification keys to group different animals in Science.  The highlight of our week has been our animation day, using props and scenery that we made to create our own animations using Animator and Stop Motion apps.


Sharing our work

We're very proud of our new displays in class which show a piece of descriptive writing describing a walk around Athens. We used adjectives, expanded noun phrases, fronted adverbials, relative clauses and prepositions to describe a walk around the City of Athens in ancient times. We thought about using our different senses to help bring our writing to life.
