Year 5 - Mrs Haden-Brown & Mrs Tamblyn

Amazing Animations and Fabulous Films is our Spring Topic

Inspired by Amelia B Edwards, who was invited by Charles Dickens to contribute stories to his magazine ‘All The Year Round’, we are going to create our own ‘Spooky Scientist’ stories in Literacy.

Before making ‘stop animation’ films in ART, we will watch and critique famous Disney and Pixar short animation films, studying their dialogue and soundtracks to discover what elements we need to create an engaging film. Red Barn Reviews will be where you can watch our reviews of the films made using green screening. This will add to our Computer Science skillset.

Music will see us studying soundtracks and composing some music of our own and our Science unit is also ‘Sound’.

The life of a Film Crew can be tough travelling to a range of set locations and for months on end. Our Geography studies will see us become experts on two contrasting set locations and consider how their geographical features will affect their crew.

The scrapbook created by Carl Fredrickson with his wife in ‘Up’, captured their memorable travels during their life together. Class 5 are going to create their own scrapbook of a journey they have taken in Carl’s hot air balloon (which they have borrowed). Here they will capture the geographical features they observe in their travel journals.

This is all in addition to the daily Numeracy sessions, weekly French and Spelling sessions.

This half term we will be swimming on Wednesday afternoons.

Please still ensure that correct PE kit is in school every day.
