5LB - Rowling

Welcome to the Class Page of 5LB (Rowling)

We are happy to welcome you all to our amazing and magical class page. Throughout the year you will be able to see our learning journey with pictures and explanations of the activities we have taken part in! We hope you enjoy!


Term 5


Our topic this term is 'Champions for Change'! We began the topic by holding an election and voting for a Prime Minister.

Term 4

Our topic this term is 'Making New Materials'. The children enjoyed workshops with Mr Berry, our science expert. The children became scientists, investigating a mystery ingredient in the chocolate factory! There were lots of excited children carrying out explosions!

Explosions with Berry!

Term 3

Our topic in Term 3 is 'Being Human'. We all took part in a 'Bleep test' which tested our fitness and got us excited about learning more about the human body and how it works. The Year 5 staff also enjoyed joining in!

During our topic we have found out a lot about different places in the world and the importance of caring about our environment. We learnt about deforestation and debated whether this was beneficial.

We also learnt about animals which live in the rainforests and used this information to create a book aimed at Year 1 pupils. We used our design skills to create 'pop-up' books which we then shared with the Year 1 classes.

We have enjoyed completing science experiments this term!

Term 2

Our topic in Term 2 is 'What a Wonderful World!' We have been recording weather data and comparing this data with a school in Dubai! What do you think the differences are?

We have been finding out about air resistance and using this knowledge to design a Roman spear which would travel the furthest. What do you think would affect the distance our spears travelled?

We really enjoyed debating! We had to explain why we thought the Roman God we had chosen was the best!

Our IPC topic started with a bang! We were invaded by the Year 6 children and a very Roman Mr Dawson! We are all enjoying finding our about the past during our 'The Great, the Bold and the Brave' topic lessons.

During our first week in Year 5 we found out about our class name. We discovered when J.K. Rowling began writing the Harry Potter books and what her real name is! We used the Ipads to create a word collage of words we associate with J.K. Rowling. We hope we can be inspired by her!


Where learning, laughter, challenge and community responsibility are encouraged and celebrated!
