Welcome to Cedar Class!


 

Hello and welcome to Cedar Class!
We are a year 5/6 class and our teacher is Mrs Prosser.
In Cedar Class, we are lucky enough to have four TAs working alongside us, these are; Mrs Leat, Mrs Birkett, Mr Merriman and Mrs Holdway.

We are all really looking forward to the another exciting year ahead in our fantastic school :)
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Prossersmiley

 

Our Current Theme!
 

What a Wonderful World

 

 

 

Our theme this term is 'What a Wonderful World' where we will be looking at different aspects of our beautiful world. It is a Geography based theme on geographical features from around the world.
 

Our new theme will include looking at Sikh stories in RE, Animals and Humans in Science and famous artists in Art.

 

Last term we were reading The Boy in the Tower by Polly Ho-Yen. We looked in depth at the book and completed lots of different reading activities. Here are some of our comic strips which retell part of the story.

 

 

Just a few reminders
Children will have a PE session every Wednesday with our sports coach and on a Thursday afternoon so please ensure that children have PE kit in school at all times.
At certain points in the year, children will be participating in 'Outdoor learning' and will be required to have suitable clothing for this activity. Children will be reminded of this when it is needed!

Word Wonder Wall

In addition to this, (in class) we have a weekly spelling challenge in Upper School, where the children are challenged to learn an additional five words taken from the Year 5/6 Spelling List which will be on our Word Wonder Wall. These are all tricky words and, so far, the children are doing a great job in challenging themselves. If they get 5 out of 5, on 3 separate occasions, the children will get a dip in my goody bag!

 

This weeks word wonder wall spellings are ...
