Year 5/6 Miss Hereford
Croeso i Dosbarth Gwyrdd, Miss Hereford!
Thank you for coming to visit our class page, we've been doing so much this term so far, it's hard to know where to begin!
Our topic this term is 'Explorers' and we've developed this in different ways. We've looked at Captain Robert Falcon-Scott that lead an expedition to the South Pole (and the disastrous consequences this held), Tori James, the first Welsh woman to climb Mount Everest and we've started studying the first voyage of the Titanic too.
We've also been on several trips and had some visitors from Romania and France too! Please take a look at some of the photos of what we have been up to and keep your eyes peeled for more updates very soon.
If you ever need to contact me regarding any queries or concerns, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Year 5/6 Trip to Twmbarlwm
This year, Year 5/6 are focussing on positive behaviours for learning such as; resilience, resourcefulness, reciprocity and reflectiveness. We are really trying to build our learning power by developing these and our trip to Twmbarlwm really encouraged the use of all four of these skills!
We trekked up Twmbarlwm, tackled obstacle courses, climbed high ropes, lit fires using steel and flint and even toasted our own marshmallows over fires. However much it rained, it didn't dampen our spirits and we had an amazing day with fantastic behaviour from the children.
Commando Jo Day!
Commando Joe Launch Day
On October 9th we had a Commando Joe launch day. Commando Joe is a new scheme that we have introduced to Malpas Court that encourages team building, problem solving and positive behaviours for learning.
We had a really fun day solving riddles, hunting down puzzle pieces and then using the clues to help us discover an image of a box. We then predicted what was going to be in the box before we opened it as a school in an exciting assembly.
We discussed as a class what makes a positive Commando and the types of behaviours we needed to display- Dosbarth Gwyrdd members would make amazing commandoes!
