Class 10

Welcome to class 10. We are a class of Year 5 children. Our teacher is Mr Sherrington and our teaching assistant is Miss Oliver.

In our class we love learning new things! We like to impress our teachers by trying our best and by being independent learners. Our teachers encourage us to grow in confidence by completing tasks independently and take more responsibility for our work.

We have lots of wonderful things planned this year so please keep checking our website and newsletters to find out more.

God Bless.

Thank you for visiting our Class page!

We are songwriters

Former pupil and Cattle and Cane member Joseph Hamill, came into class to help us to create a welcome song for our new starters to school.

The class created lyrics and performed their song based on the life of James Cook, which they have been studying about in history.

Me, I’m from Middlesbrough, me.

I joined the navy when I was 18.

I was full of ambition

I had a mission

I dreamed of ruling the sea

 

Did you know I’m the son of Grace Pace?

Thornaby born and raised.

We moved to Great Ayton

For my education

Me, I’m from Middlesbrough, me.

 

I’m Captain Cook

And I’m the King of the Sea

I create maps for the whole world to see

I follow the stars

To travel so far

I love cartography!

 

 

Did you know I’m one of the greats?

We changed the world,

me and my mates.

We sailed the Endeavour

Throughout stormy weather

Me, I’m from Middlesbrough, me.

 

We set sail

Our adventure begun

Looking for Venus to pass by the sun

We arrived at Tahiti,

Where the locals did meet me.

Shocked and surprised by me!

 

I took a route

To discover new land

Such a relief when my feet touched the sand.

It’s been weeks, it’s been months

Since I had a good lunch

I want a parmo please!

 

I sailed my boat

Along Australia’s coast

I claimed the land in the name of my home

We stopped in Hawaii

But I don’t know why ee

And that was the end of me!

 

We are Historians

We have been learning about the impact of James Cook and the British Commonwealth on the world today.

 

Parliament week

As part of Parliament Week Class 10 have discussed how the process of decision making in the United Kingdom has been through a Parliament for some time. We focused on the British value of the Rule of Law. Children conducted a diamond nine activity ranking in their opinions the most important laws in our societies today. The children found out about the roles of the House of Lords and House of Commons play in changing or bringing in new laws. The children then debated their choices of the laws which needed to be changed or reviewed.

 

 

 

Amazing African Art

Class 10 loved designing African tribal artwork before moving on to creating their own masks.

We are Bakers 

The children created their own instructions for a healthy wholemeal alternative to shop bought bread. These were then used to bake wholemeal rolls.
