Lemurs

Our class

Fun, fun, fun (and more fun)!

Being in Lemurs is the best thing that can ever happen to you. Lemurs class is amazing. We are Dylan, Edite, Fred, Imi, Imo, Johanna, Josh, Lily, Millie, Reuben, Sadie, Thomas, Thomas, Tilly and Tom, who are all in year 5 and year 6. We have a brilliant teacher, Miss Wools, as well as the amazing Mrs Parsons. We have 15 pupils in our class and we are always open for a visit. As there are only 15 children in the class, it’s always easy to concentrate. The children in the class are always friendly to each other. We have a wonderful big classroom so we have space to move around.

Our Topic

Our topic is Mexico and the Aztecs. We are looking forward to finding out all about it. We will be looking at lots of interesting areas, from geography to the history of the Aztecs. As Humanitarians we will be finding out who the Aztecs were and how they built their empire.  We will be looking for evidence of what life was like during these times.

As Geographers we will be exploring the continents of North and South America.  We will use data and information to answer questions about the geographical features of Mexico and discover why it is such a popular holiday destination.

As Designers we will study Mexican textiles & beadwork.  We will consider the history of Aztec weaving & use the techniques to create our own quality artefacts.  We will also study traditional Mexican food.  We will plan, make and evaluate Mexican recipes.

As Scientists we will extend our knowledge of evolution, inheritance and living things.  

Our Learning

We are creative. We learn in the most fun way possible. You get to choose what you want to do and your level of challenge for your work. You have options. We listen to each other all the time, no matter what. We learn, maths, English, French, science, art, singing, PSHE, RE, history, geography, sport, PE and computing. We do a run every morning to keep fit and healthy.

We like to get out and do different things. We have been to Bath Abbey singing at Christmas and lots of us went on school camp to Mill on the Brue.

We wrote a song/rap/poem. It is a work in progress but here’s what we have so far:
