In our class, we are encouraged to be independent and creative in our learning and to think for ourselves and not to always rely on others.
To find out more about our class and what activities we have been undertaking on a daily basis, then please take a look at the details below. This page will be regularly updated with new material, so please keep checking back for new information.

Year 5 continued the Greek theme for their topic with a 'Come to School Dressed as a Greek'.
Being the imaginative bunch that they are, they came in quite impressive costumes.
We tried not to make contact with a few of them, which you will understand why from the photos.
It's All Greek to Me!!
Year 5, in my opinion, held the best class assembly that Orchard Primary has seen.
They have been learning about Greece, their Gods and The Olympics.
If you didn't know much about Greece you would have left the assembly with lots of knowledge.
Watch the video to see how fabulous they all are.
The British Museum has many artefacts from all around the world and because Year 5 is studying the history of Greece, this was a good place to visit.
It has many items of pottery, jewellery and everyday living objects from Ancient Greece.
Year 5 also went to
the court of the Persian king and met King Darius himself.
Continuing with the Space topic, Mrs Hannick took Year 5 to the Science Museum to see rockets, satellites, probes and landers.
They looked around the gallery in groups and explored how we’ve sent spacecraft to other planets, walked on the Moon and peered into the heart of our galaxy and beyond.
There was a full-sized replica of ‘Eagle’ – the lander that took astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin to the Moon in 1969.
The Science Museum has a virtual 3D image of Earth which you can stand next to and imagine what it must be like to look at from space.
The museum has many wonderful displays of real space rockets including the very first called Sputnik1 which was launched in 1957.
Ask a year 5 pupil how you breathe, eat, drink and go to the toilet in space and they will be able to answer.
