Red Kite - Our Learning Journey

Red Kite Update (08/11/2017)

Red Kite Class have been busy getting stuck into some coding recently, the children have been animating characters using Tynker to move around a stage and engage in a range of interactions.

In Literacy, we have used 'The Ridge' which documents Danny MacAskill's journey up to the peak of the Cuillin Mountains on the Isle of Skye - stay tuned for some fantastic diary entries.

We said goodbye to our 'Fiery North' topic by creating clay volcanoes and testing the reactions of vinegar with sodium bicarbonate (lava).

Red Kite Update (13.10.2017)

We have been incredibly busy both in and out of class recently. Firstly, Niamh, Ava and Chloe all had recent sporting and extra-curricular success through Blue Peter, cricket and karate respectively.

We have used our computing skills to do some image editing in order to create some of our own hybrid animals to help inspire our literacy work whilst in Maths we have continued to focus on subtraction.

We celebrated our Volcanoes of North America topic with a visit from the Freshwater Theatre Company for a drama workshop. In addition, we have been busy experimenting with forces in Science as well as continuing with our fantastic non-chronological reports in literacy.

Our Week in Year 5 (22/09/2017)

We have enjoyed another busy week in Red Kite Class.

 

The children have got to grips with ordering and comparing numbers by using famous Twitter accounts and the amount of followers that celebrities have. We also explored the use of Zimmer Twins which allowed us to build stories and experiment with dialogue in literacy. We also continued with some fantastic work in Science looking at different variables in a range of experiments.

Enjoy a safe weekend,

Mr Paynter

In Red Kite class we discovered the Attenborough in us all as we used our own playground to search for, and document the strange homes, plants and creations found on Neverbelieve. Some children found amazement when discovering the chocolate tree! Book mountain had groups of children dazzled by its storytelling, whilst the pasta tree was a delightful treat for those who tried it.
In Literacy we have started to explore the strange and mysterious land of Neverbelieve. Based on the brilliant book by Norman Messenger we are aimining to write letters to none other than Sir David Attenborough!

Why? Because we have discovered a new hybrid animal on Neverbelieve.

Music/ICT: Future Producers (11/01/17)

Using web based music studios we have been able to develop and build compositions with an awareness of instrument, tone and pace.

The children have produced some fantastic pieces and clearly have a talent for creating a soundscape from scratch.

See below for more examples of the children's work.

New Topic!

 

With the start of a new term comes a new topic! This term in Red Kites we are looking at World War II with a particular focus on life in Britain at the time.

Using some information posters, the children have the started to develop their own questions that will direct their research throughout the topic. After all, good history stems from good questioning!

As always we are continuously on the look out for books, replicas and documents etc. that will develop our insight into our new topic. If you think you may have something and are of course willing to share it, please do not hesitate to let us give it a new home for a short while. 


Many Thanks, Mr Paynter.
