Earth - Year 5/6

Earth Class


Term 5! Even with all the changes that have been taking place during this academic year - how can it be term 5?! Time has flown!! We have achieved so much and all the adults in Earth Class are so proud of you all.

We have lots to look forward to in Term 5 - including much more glorious weather...I look forward to reading our class book out on the grass at the end of a busy day, with the sun on our backs and the wind tickling our hair! 

Mrs Hunt, Mrs Chapman and Mr Potter xx


P.S. Remember to wear your sun cream! 




Lord our God, we thank you for the new life we celebrate at Easter; help us to keep growing in the life that never comes to an end.  

We pray for our families, our friends, and all those we care about: fill them with hope and happiness. 

We pray for people who are unhappy today: those who are hungry, or homeless, those who fear violence or harm; may they find protection and peace.  

We pray for those who are ill, or facing difficulties: may they find hope in the cross of Christ, and be strengthened by the knowledge of your love.  

Lord, accept our prayers, and be with us now and forever.

Earth class year 6 Forest school activities! 27/04/2021



Let’s grow. A crispy carrot, a luscious lettuce or a tasty tomato. Dig deep and put your back into it, making your own tubs and planters and nurturing your greens. Harvest your crops and make soups and dishes of seasonal foods that taste delicious. Learn about farms and where food comes from, writing reports on worldwide produce. Discover which allotments are closest to your school, and open the door to the secret garden. Then establish a farmers’ market, harvesting your crops and selling local produce. Include garden crafts and work out your prices. Be sure to make a profit, not a loss. After all that hard work, have your fingers gone green?

On our first day back, we learnt all about composting!

We have two class books that we are going to be focusing on in class this term!

Our first two weeks!

Here we are!

During the first full two weeks we have been studying a book called Here we are by Oliver Jeffers. The children have had the opportunity to explore what has happened during our lock down time, how they felt and what were the highs and lows for them. We have taken our time in Earth class to think about how with need to learn to socialise with each other and made our class promises. The children have also thought about what they would like our world to be like in the future and how they can personally make a difference. The children have thought deeply about their own personal emotions upon returning to school. Even though we have not been able to sing we have enjoyed joining in with many actions of our favourite school songs. We have been very impressed with how all the children have returned back to school life and see each of their individual spirits sparkle!

Here we are!
