Welcome to Class 5 - Jaguars!
Jaguars are a Y6 class. Our Class teachers are Mrs Christie (Monday-Tuesday) and Mrs Roberts (Wednesday – Friday). Ms Graus is our fantastic Teaching Assistant.
Today we became characters from the book 'The Explorer' by Katherine Rundell. We had lots of questions to ask them! The characters we became were a boy who is good at problem solving (Fred), a calm but determined girl (Lila), a girl who seems to be very grumpy and always in a bad mood (Con) and a five-year-old boy (Max). Can you tell from our body language who was who?
Whilst some of the children were taking part in a Cross Country race, the rest of us became teachers! We had to design and lead a PE lesson for Year 3-5. The children were split into groups and rotated around our activities. They all seemed to enjoy it!
We had a brilliant afternoon over at Alfreton Park with the Derwent Valley Orienteers. We used our map skills (and our running skills!) to see how many stations we could visit in our 45 minute limit. It was great fun! Who do you think got the highest score?
In our Computing work this week, we looked at stereotyping online. We learned why it is important to challenge and reject inappropriate representations online.
We worked in three groups and had to create an advert for a Robot Dog. Each group had a slightly different design brief. We proved that we weren't going to fall into the trap of gender stereotyping when we presented our adverts to the class!
